You know those bad ass Miu Miu sneakers from this past season? Well, I saw a pair at the Miu Miu store in NYC and just had to have them. Although $600 was a little too steep for me. It was about $500 overpriced- Seriously, ridiculous. Anywho, I stumbled upon this blog Honestly, WTF who had done a show with Martha Stewart recreating these glitter shoes and I was hooked. So, I took some glitter (Florentine Gold), Mod Podge and a pair of cheap shoes canvas shoes from Payless and made these bad boys.
I put like 5,785 coats of glitter on it. It took pretty much half the day. I also glittered a hair clip while I was it. Below are the rhinestones and studs/spikes I got to put on the tip of the shoe.Although the original Miu Miu’s don’t have spikes and studs , I thought to customize it more with a variety of rhinestones, studs and spikes. I did buy a few 1 inch gold spikes, but thought it would be too severe for these shoes. I may make a necklace out of them or something.
And here is the finished product. I chose not to have shoelaces for a cleaner look. I also added my ‘Moosh’ moniker to the tongue of the shoe. I’m thinking of doing a pair in pink and turquoise glitter… check out my Etsy shop, if you don’t feel like making these and want a pair- I’ll make it for ya- all custom-like!
