New Blue Shoes

Hello Readers. Have you ever wanted to change the color of your shoes? Maybe this issue hasn't come up in your life. This was an issue for me recently.

I know what you are thinking. Those shoes are really light blue. They are a unique shade of light blue for shoes. They are really comfortable and they have great arch support.
 But they are a weird shade of light blue. They are seriously the color of a 1992 suburban bathroom.

There is a solution. It is cheap, available on Amazon, and easy to use. It is called Angelus Leather paint. (They do not know me and did not pay me to say anything about them.) There are so many colors too. I had navy paint, so I used it.

There was a little brush that came in the bottle but I didn't like it. I used a larger brush. The paint was easy to apply to the shoes but it dries very fast. I worked in little sections and tried to spread the paint evenly. I jabbed the brush in and around little nooks and crannies to cover everything. I needed to add a second coat of paint to some spots.

The finished look of the shoes was nice and still looked like leather. I was afraid the paint would look too thick or look plastic-ish, but it looked great. It added a little shine, like I had polished my shoes with shoe polish.

I didn't paint the inside of the shoe. I didn't know if the paint would come off on my feet over time so I just painted the outside. The inside doesn't show anyway. I like the navy color much better than the original light blue color. It went with my jeans better anyway.

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

*Year end update- It has been 2 months since I painted these and they still look great.

Wow! Glad to know about that leather paint. I have a pair of shoes that are too light also. Looks like I can fix that. Thanks for sharing.

Your shoes look great. What an easy fix...Thanks for sharing the name of the paint, I want to paint some shoes too. Please post later about how well the paint holds up to weather and bending at the toes, etc..

Hi, I will keep you posted. I am hoping the paint is durable. I have worn the shoes twice and so far they are great.
