DIY / Monochrome leather slides




Leather slides / DIY


I don't know how Ivania Carpio made it seem that this DIY is as effortless as making a paper plane. Wait , I don't even know how to make one up to now. However, my ardent need of having a no-fuss, chunky , easy slip on pushed me to make one. No biggie. I mean rubber slides are extremely everywhere. When you go outside, you'll definitely come accross to  like 5 guys  or more wearing slides. I have always been seeing the same logo mania slides. The battle of Adidas and Nike lives on including the in-betweeners. There wasn't a sign of discreet and minimal slides out there. Yes, It was easy acquiring the generic rubber slides but making the pattern wasn't as easy as I thought it was. Thankfully I was able to make use of a soft leather since I don't need another leather- blistered foot , thank you very much, The gentle soft leather was a dream. After messing up with the gooey super glue on my clumsy fingers, I was happy nonetheless to have created something. Thankfully the rubber is easy to clean. I do hope it won't get yellow sooner or later.

  1. I have the adidas and the nike slip on sandals before it was trendy cause I play sports and they are great for going to the pool, but I do agree some with no labels or brands would be nice too. Good job on making your own, I am not gonna lie I am gonna see if I can get the Alexander Wang x H&M ones if they sell in my city and if they are affordable. Ivania is amazing xx

  2. love your photoshoot set up! and i agree with you about ivana, seriously i'd be afraid to wear my diy outdoors but she looks like she's discovered a super glue that survives nuclear winter because i've seen her wear them many times. these are a great alternative to waiting in line for A.wang x h&m
