I received these shoes for free as part of a promotional thing I participated in. They’re BOBs by Sketchers, aka: knock-off TOMs. I didn’t get to choose style or color. They’re comfortable and easy to wear, but the black seemed boring. Seeing as they were free shoes, I figured I had nothing really to lose by experimenting with them.
So I found some electrical tape in our utility drawer and slapped some on the shoes in a stripey pattern
Then I took a bleach pena nd spread the bleach all over the shoes
A dip in vinegar and water to neutralize the bleach
An hour to dry in the blazing-hot sun
And now they look like this.
And I can’t decide if I like them or want to bleach them out more.
But improvement or downgrade,
they’re no longer boring.
