My love for Tom’s is genuine. However, my love for fake Tom’s, or, classic canvas sneakers is just as strong because the cheapies I can make over with no fear of ruining an expensive pair of shoes.
So when I was trolling the Dollar General shoe bins, as you do, I noticed a single pair of gray classic canvas sneakers. Now I love these knockoffs, a ton. They fit well and they are comfy. Trust me, I’ve bought a ton of these suckers and I will continue to buy them whenever I see them in my size.
And as luck would have it, they were my size. I decided I wanted to girly them up with a bow. But then I started thinking about how the other 6 days of the week when I wouldn’t want a white and grey chevron bow fancying up my shoes and looked for a less permanent solution. Rivets!
Rivets will hold any variety or ribbons or embelishments and look pretty cool when there’s nothing in them. Check out the full tutorial for this Rivets and Bows Shoe Makeover at Mom Spark this week (and invest in a decent eyelet setting tool instead of the bargain store cheapie I was trying to work with).
