Duck Tape Shoes

At a conference a couple weeks ago, I wore an entire Duck Tape outfit – you can see my Duck Tape Dress and Accessories in this post. As part of the outfit, I needed Duck Tape shoes. They were simple to make!

I started with a pair of sandals I bought at a discount clothing store, and Duck Tape that matched my Duck Tape Prom Dress.

I covered up the faux suede on the shoes with Duck Tape. To finish the edges, I clipped the excess tape into tabs, then folded the tabs under.

I used brand new shoes for my Duck Tape kicks, but Duck Tape would be a great way to dress up an old pair of shoes and give them new life!
