Plain Black Shoes, Magically Transformed with Hand Cut Lace

Black Canvas Shoes_Lace Decoration

Fabric and lace may be attached to canvas shoes with various types of glue.  When I am happy with the design I apply at least three coats of gel medium to protect the shoes.

You don’t have to limit your shoe colors to commercially available selections if you can use scissors and apply glue.
