I saw these beauties at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s “Shoe Obsession” Exhibit in March. The exhibit was basically heaven for a shoe lover like me and I spent over an hour perusing all the different shoes.
I wanted to see if there was a way to remake these shoes. However, I thought it would be quite difficult to find a pair of shoes that would not be curvy like the shoes above. I had a pair of gladiator jellies that I needed repair, so I decided to make them into “Déjà Vu” gladiator sandals. Since they were jelly sandal material, the googly eyes stayed on without a hitch.
I went to Michael’s to search for the eyes. It actually took me a while until my dad pointed out that there was an aisle labeled “eyes”. I bought a 250 pack of the smaller medium sized ones- that was way too many! I only needed around 80 to cover both shoes.
I then took a hot glue gun and the googly eyes and stuck them on. It was super easy and I love how it came out. If you want to put more of a nod to the original Louboutin shoes, I would get red jellies!
Tada! Super easy and really fun.
