Dont you feel pinched when you look at these shoes? they are fire! via solestruck.com  (too bad they are sold out)

spikes have been one of my obsessions for a minute. check out my previous spiked outfit here

loving every bit of it and the edge it brings to any look

…….

so I posted a pic of my diy (do-it-yourself) shoes on my twitter about last month and I got replies asking me how I did it…Good thing, I took the pictures!!

2
materials used: drill, ruler, pencil, screw back spikes via ebay (here) for $18 per 100 spikes and ofcourse your loafers

got tired of wearing my loafers so I decided to spike it out! 

one of those nights when your fighting with sleep and decide to keep yourself busy

BTW the shoes cost about $15 so the project was under $35

1

  • used the ruler and white pencil to draw 1 inch lines on the shoes (didnt need to be perfect)
  • Step by step created holes in the shoes with the aid of the drilling machine <not as tough as i thought>
  • screwed the spikes on the nut

3

VOILA!!! in less than 45 minutes (no jokes!)

I might probably finish up the whole shoe but I am enjoying this for now

I get questions everywhere I go about it.

hope you enjoyed this  and are willing to try it out yourself? 

have a wonderful day!

xoxo

    I make customised spiky shoes and though your tutorial is great, it has no mention of what to cover the indie of the shoes with so the spikes doesn't scratch your skin.

    if you cut up a bit of faux leather (from any old jacket) or jeans, use industrial glue (any DIY shop) and put some on the faux leather then put it inside the shoe to cover up the screwbacks of the place where your spikes are, leave them to dry for half hour and voila! you can wear them cofortably without it scartching you 🙂
