Bloody Fingers

There is a story behind my newest DIY. While shopping in Vancouver, Stefanie forgot one of her bags in one of the trashy barstar stores we were in, so we went back in to search for it. After we had found it we found another trashy store we hadn't been in so we checked it out just for fun. Total ~*~destiny~*~ because I found these boots which were exactly what I was looking for. (and for $20 too!!) I wanted leather-looking boots that were thin so they would be easier to stud. Last time I tried studded leather I got about 4 in and wanted to die. This time it was a lot easier, but my fingers still feel like they're bleeding on the inside. Suffer for fashion though, right? Take a look! I hope it was worth all the blood, sweat and tears.

The only downside is they have ZERO grip on the bottom. My friend Lana was telling me she took a pair of shoes into a shoemaker to get industrial grip put on the bottom. Might be worth it to get a little more wear out of these. I can just picture myself sliding around on the show covered ice that Winnipeg's ground turns into in the winter months. Not a good look.

Oh, and I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

You are so lucky! I was going to stud my jacket but I haven't gotten around to doing so yet, those boots are gorgeous though

I bet there's some sticky grip things you can stick on the bottom of the shoes, taking them to a shoemaker will cost way too much. Freakin hate those greedy cobblers, they always overcharge

Amazing project! I haven't been brave enough to tackle leather on a DIY project. You inspired me though, and for that thank you.
