I had worn this black pair for probably three years and they were toast. The fake leather was scuffed so bad that I just couldn't wear them anymore.
Can you see those scuffs and gouges?
So what to do with my old friends? Why PAINT THEM of course. Why not. I am not sure the exact thing that made me have this idea, but during the thought process I remembered that I had a shirt from Old Navy that had a gold sequined reindeer...so checking my paint stash I found that I had some gold, brown, wood tone, and clear coat. This boot painting was going to happen!
I wore them for a good 12 hours the next day and they actually didn't do too bad. The gold wore away around where the boots crease...but nothing that a quick touch up couldn't fix if I wanted to wear them again..
