Easy DIY Shoe Trick Will Give Your Old Shoes New Life


I have so many shoes in my closet that I’ve had for a few years and can’t bear to simply throw out– but I’ll admit, a few of them have seen much better days and desperately need a facelift.

This hack is incredibly easy and I’m honestly kicking myself for not thinking of it myself (and sooner). Not to mention, it’s super on-trend right now– so grab your old pair of shoes, some metallic paint (gold, silver or bronze– you pick!) and some masking tape, and follow the steps below!



1. Tape off the top of the shoe where you want your accent to be (i.e. the toe)

2. Use a bit of metallic paint and paint the shoe tip.

3. Allow to dry for 30 minutes to an hour, then gently remove the tape.

4. Admire your like-new pair of shoes!
