Now what do you think about these? First I made a trip to the thrift shop and found a pair of black leather shoes. Then I attended Margot Silk Forest's shoe redesigning class. I painted these with Lumiere paint. Then took a old zipper apart and gathered each side and sewed one side to the top of each shoe. Plan on wearing these to a wedding in Minnesota where my conservative relatives are sure that Californians are way out. I am sure that this will confirm their thoughts.
