So I had a few queries from my last story ‘quick fix’, as to how I transformed my worn out old sneakers into shoe candy!!! Quick, simple and as easy as a pie!

I really love the fit of these comfy, old shoes and I really didn’t have the heart to chuck them away. But they looked hopelessly scruffy and boring. So what to do? Well, when in doubt….add sparkle!

They look brand new and super trendy and different! (I love owning things that look unique!)

Time to raid your shoe closet girls!! Those old, faithful shoes you thought were at the end of their days, still have a bit of a kick left in them.

Here is what you will need:

  • Fabric glue ( or a really, really strong adhesive)
  • Chandala (available in the market at any store that sells borders, laces…u know designer tools) They are available in a whole range of colours and shapes
  • A steady hand
  • And lastly, a whole lotta patience

You can experiment with different patterns and colours

I have put up a step by step photo tutorial to help you get a clearer picture.


Find an old pair of sneakers. Air them out. They should be completely dry.

Take the glue and start by putting tiny pearl drops of it in your desired pattern. But stick the chandala on quickly before it dries and smudges the shoes.

Patiently finish sticking and then dry the shoes off with a hair drier. Or you could just let them dry out in the sun for a bit.

It’s really easy! And so many people appreciated the shoes! Innovative, cheap and chic!

And I know for a fact, that shoes like this would cost me a bomb at any store!!

Hope you guys find it helpful! 🙂
