This Refinery 29 painterly pumps tutorial walks viewers through an easy approach to getting high-end footwear on the cheap.
Inspired by black and white shoes seen on the runway, this DIY involves little more than white shoes, duct tape and shoe polish. The original version of the shoes was a white pair with a black painted design around the opening of the shoe. To achieve this look for less, those wanting to create the look are instructed to use black shoe polish as paint, and layer it so much so that it becomes almost opaque.
The result is a purposely imperfect pair of kicks with a ton of attitude. Better yet, those who try out the DIY have the freedom to choose the white shoes to be used as a canvas.
