Over the past couple of years I have become a shoe-a-holic. I can’t get enough of a certain brand with their unique designs that even have flat and low heels so even I can wear them without looking like Bambi walking. Yes I am talking about…
One of the unique things about these shoes are the soles and with ever season a new design for the soles appears.
With David Bowie having an influence on a few designs of Irregular Choice shoes there was much excitement with Ground Control came out this week. I of course had to splurge… well it would be rude not to, and these shoes did not disappoint.
The soles however worried me, I loved the cute little bunnies and decided they would need protecting, only problem was these shoes were not like my normal with a heel these are totally flat and the entire sole needed protecting.
I normally use Madame Rogue sole protectors but these would not cover the entire shoe and on the facebook groups I was struggling to find out if the Irregular choice sole protectors would be long enough of would end up with a seam.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I hit ebay and found Anti Slip Tape High Grip Adhesive Backed Safety Flooring Non Slip Tape
I ordered 100mm x 1m which was wide enough for the shoe and most definitely long enough.
I stuck it over the sole of the shoe making sure it was totally smooth and no bubbles or bends.
Next it was time to trim away the excess.
I had to go over the edges a few times trimming them down making sre they were flush with the edge of the she and no overhanging parts and continually smoothing it out as I trimmed.
Both pairs now have grips so no more sliding around for me and my bunnies are protected.
Now all I need is an excuse to wear them!
