DIY: Wanging It

So after seeing the chained shorts on Park & Cube, I had the sudden urge to chain everything I have ever owned. Started by making these shoes a little less boring.

I marked where I wanted my holes to go with tailor's chalk.
I used 5mm eyelets, which means I had to cut a 3mm hole where I wanted it to go.


Then pushed the eyelet through the hole, and used the eyelet tool thingy to clamp that hit down ( Can I just make a small side note here to NEVER do this post-mani and PREFERABLY do it if a stronger sibling or male counterpart is around. My hands got KILLED doing this.)


Voila! One down, 324567890 to go. Not really ( But it felt that way).

I measured different chain widths and sizes and started securing them to the holes.


Carried on till my hands could no longer move of their own accord.

TA-DA!

    seriously this is one of the best diys i've ever seen...

    ps- about the aldo's; I'm normally a 37 and got the 38 so I think 38 could possibly be good for you. Are you interested? Want measurements?

  7. I'm a 37 wide and they fit me quite snugly (which is why I'm selling..otherwise these babies would be with me til the end)

    Here are the measurements, so you can decide-
    24 cm long from heel to tip (9 inches)
    13 cm (5 inch) heel height w/ 3 cm platform in front (1.5 inch)

  8. Hey, 35 USD to ship to South Africa from Israel immediately (like, tomorrow if you want)
    if you'd like I can ship it from the US on July 28th, but that would be 42 USD
