DIY: Studded Boots

Monday, March 14, 2011

"Want to add spice to your boots??"

I thought my boots looked rather dull so I did a little alteration after seeing a pair of Balenciaga a friend had showed me. I wanted it so bad that I couldn't sleep at night just thinking of it!
Inspired and motivated, I worked on my skills and with what I had to get the Balenciaga feel to my boots. I DIY'ed it.

I added studs instead of rivets to give a little rockstar feel to it. I also wanted to add chains in the opening but I thought it would be too much and that I might overdo it. 
Hope you like it!

It's easy and very doable. 
(refer to the photos)

1. Measure how far you want each stud from the other. 
Mine was about 1cm apart 
and I used 7 studs for each strap.

2. Mark the desired places by making small slits using a cutter.
You can also use scissors.

3. Punch the studs and make sure it went through the leather.

4. Using your pliers, fold the end of the studs
making sure all is well pressed.

5. Continue steps 3 & 4 until you have punched
 all the studs in place.

Isn't it easy? Try it!

  13. Divine Loan Opportunity Offered By CHESTER BRIAN LOANS That Save My Family From Financial Bondage { }

    Hello Everyone, I am Rosie Rhoma a single mom from Texas USA, I will like to share this great testimony on how i got a loan from Chester Brian Loans, when we were driven out of our home when i couldn't pay my bills anymore, After been scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union i visited. my children were taken by the foster care, i was all alone in the street. Until a day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first i told her that i am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that i will received my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my
    homelessness i had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me i received a loan of $80,000.00 from Chester Brian Loans. Am happy i took the risk and applied for the loan. my kids have been given back to me and now i own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to CHESTER BRIAN LOAN COMPANY for giving a meaning to life when i had lost all hope.
