the silver shoe project

so. i've been on a search for silver shoes, and it hasn't gone well.

then i was thinking of those men's oxfords from a few seasons ago. were they helmut lang? prada? i can't remember, but they were black leather *painted* silver, and the silver would start to crack, and then you'd see the black underneath, which was cool.

so i bought chrome spraypaint and did a little experimental project: i painted some old pink shoes silver.

pink shoes - before

pink shoes - before


one down, one to go


silver shoes (aka pink shoes - after)

pink shoes - after (silver shoes)


they're super shiny. we'll see how the paint wears. for right now i'm happy.
