Actually, if I was to be completely accurate the title should read, ‘Old Brass toes’, but it really doesn’t have the same ring to it!
These are my favourite shoes. A pair of Rollie Nation lace up derby’s. They are as comfy as hell, designed by an Australian company and they are leopard print. What’s not to love?
The thing is, I have perhaps loved them too much. They are looking a little tired. The ‘pony hair’ and pattern is starting to rub away, particularly on my right foot. Anyone would think I was playing a regular game of footy. I can assure you, I am not.
I am no stranger to pimping my shoes, the last time I did it was about 2 years ago and it became one of my first blog posts.
The original inspiration for the revamp came from an excellent book called Adorn by Kit Lee and Shini Park. It’s a cute and easy DIY book about how to update your clothes and accessories.
This is my version, be prepared, it’s quick and easy…
They aren’t perfect (there was a bit of leakage), but they are damn fine in my opinion. I think some new laces would finish the job perfectly.
Now, time to shine….
