I had this pair of shoes in my closet for a few years and I think I wore them 1 time.
A little spray paint and some glued on ribbon and they are now shoes that I have worn numerous times. I love how they turned out. I first removed the ribbon and then sprayed them with primer. Since they were cloth, they soaked up a lot of paint. I then taped off the section that I wanted to a different color and painted. The sequins were just hot glued on.
They have held up pretty well. There are a few cracks but only noticeable if you get close to them. However, going from a pair of shoes I never wore to ones that wore a few times already, I think I got a little more money out of them.
