Encouraging people to upcycle their tired footwear, Meg Allan Cole Crafts has released a video tutorial on DIY colorblocked flats. The easy-to-follow tutorial is going viral for its simple brilliance and of-the-moment design.

Playing on the colorblocking trend making a comeback on the runways, the tutorial is a straightforward instructional video. Using only a handful of materials, a solid dose of color can easily be projected onto played-out plain flats. The tutorial featured uses a mint green paint on plain black flats, but many other combinations are possible. The video itself is sunny and well-produced, a surprisingly professional take on occasionally poor-quality DIYs.

Allowing people to breath life into boring and old flats, this is a wonderfully doable DIY. Experimental audiences will be waiting on the next tutorial from this talented YouTube user.
