A pair slide slippers
super glue

Hopefully, there will still be a few sunny days left this summer to wear both of these pairs, fingers crossed that it will still be warm in Paris at the end of the month! Absolutely love this chunky yet cleaner, more minimal alternative to the striped Adidas Adilettes, the buckled Birkenstocks and the furry sandals by Céline. I got this brilliant idea from Amalie, who’s lovely blog I’ve recently discovered. It was one of those things that immediately went to the top of my to do list and which I just had to share with all you guys.

instructions (if you need any)
01/ measure the straps of your slides and cut out two pieces of leather.
02/ glue them on.

    How does the glue hold up to wear? I would worry that it would fall apart.

    the glue holds up quite well!
    there are a lot of high quality super glues out there, cobblers also often use glue for certain superficial shoe-repairs. Because it is glued on top of the original straps, there is no pressure on the glue itself, the leather just sits there and nothing is pulling on it – if that makes sense

  25. The Arizona Birkenstocks were just starting to grow on me but this blew it out of the water. I’d much rather wear this minimalist piece of art.

  26. What strikes me most of this DIY is the fact that you can turn such cheap, ugly looking plastic shoes into a minimal, basic yet minimalist shoe just by covering the top by leather.

    This is so wonderful Ivania – I really want to give this a try! just need to get my hands on some leather! They definitely feel more stylish than the generic Adidas ones!

    I’m a huge fan of guest-posting! I landed a guestpost on in my first month as freelancer blogger. It was such an awesome, heady feeling. Even though my website needs a ton of work (hence generating traffic isn’t anywhere in my agenda), I write guest post just to get my name out there in front of potential clients.

    I’m going to implement your tips when I start pitching to the bigger guns out there (Forbes, Business Insider, Copyblogger). Bookmarking this article!

    Thank you, Soniya !
