Fur shoes are having a moment right now, as I’ve seen faux fur sandals, pumps, sneakers, slip ons and mules.
Everyone from Steve Madden to Jimmy Choo to Gucci is adding pom pom and puff balls onto their footwear. As much as I love fun shoes, I also know that these are super trendy, and something I don’t want to invest my money in.
I’m not a big DIY-er for many reasons (the main one being lack of patience) but, when I found myself absolutely loving these heels at Nordstrom, I knew I could make them for a fraction of the price.
The nice thing about making your own shoes is that you get to choose the black pumps, so you can avoid finding a pair of shoes that look great but feel terrible. For me, I went with Old Navy’s classic pump. I’ve talked about these before, and along with being cost effective (yay!) they are also a reasonable height and work for all day wear (double yay!). I own them in pink (here), metallic (here), red velvet (here) and now black.
As for supplies – I stopped into my local Michael’s to snag a mini glue gun (here) and pom pom hair rubberbands (they have these keychains you could use as well). I cut the rubber bands off the pom poms, heated up the hot glue gun and then glued those babies on.
