Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes ~ Custom Shoes~ Designer Soles

So as you may know I have a little shoe obsession, I keep buying them!!! I have also studied fashion design and like to customise and design under my label Purple Button Couture.

I don’t know how many of you have heard the Paul Simon song "Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes" those strutting around in Louboutins signature red soles might as well have diamonds on the soles of their shoes. And Irregular Choice always have some pretty little pictures on their soles. I was inspired, so I set to work!!!

My Supplies:

·        I got some plain black shoes in Penneys/Primark €15

·        Nail Polish €1.79 Essence

·        Random buttons and beads in Cork Craft Supplies

·        Some old bracelets and hairclips

·        Glue/ my trusty hot glue gun

As I tend to wear a lot of BLACK, these shoes add a nice pop of colour plus anyone who notices the designs on the soles of your shoes is worth talking to!

This is a fairly simple custom shoe project!

I simply painted the soles in the colour I had chosen… Purple!!!!

Let them dry and started gluing beads and buttons onto my shoes.

Tah Dah…


I linked these into a head piece. We all have scratched sunglasses!!! And I had some left over supplies.

 So instead of throwing out these scratched aviators I simply painted them and added the same kind of buttons and beads and now I have a head piece!!


What do you think??
Thanks for reading
