For lovers of the cherry-red soles of iconic Louboutins – or for those wanting to jazz up your old pumps with your choice of colored sole – score some leather paint at your local craft store (or online at Caningshop.com) – Angelus is the recommended brand – and paint the soles of your shoes! Don’t forget to mask the parts you don’t want to paint with painter’s tape and apply carefully…the paint will rub off with wear but is easy to apply. Use acetone to remove any bloopers. Seal your work with a coat of Angelus Matte Acryic Finisher. Since you’ll be walking on it, the paint will eventually wear away, but at least the visible part will remain cherry-red for as long as you want them to.
