Change the colour of his sneakers
If you want a particular colour that you can not find in the store, do not despair! You can dye your converse in the canvas of the colour you want.
Just buy some dye and follow the instructions. There are lots of tutorials available on the internet. So go for mustard yellow sneakers or celadon blue; anything you like!
If you have a pair of white sneakers, draw on them! For this, make sure they are as clean as possible. And the driest possible too!
Take some sharpie; these are permanent markers. Draw on your shoes.It is better to test first on paper before marking since you can not erase these markers.
And if you want to make the design waterproof, take a candle and rub it on the surface of the sneakers and then use a hairdryer to fix the wax.
Wait 5 minutes before putting on the shoes.
If you like what shines, then here is an easy way to overshine sneakers. Buy sequins and textile glue and decide on your design.
Then glue these sequins on the tennis shoes making sure that the glue dries well.
You can also decide to glue glitter all over the surface of the sneakers for a brilliant result!

Dare to add pins on your converse: sharp, round, colourful Just stick with suitable glue. So it’s super simple, and the result is super fun!
The sneakers are far from boring.
Change the laces
Lace can be made from ribbon or even from fabric. A bit of tape on the ends and you’re done.
This also allows you to match your sneakers to your outfit of the day or even to your mood.
Not bad, for a minimal investment!
Play with laces
There are many ways to tie sneakers, as can be seen on the blog. We can lace up in the ladder or make crossed laces, straight, twisted, discreet, extravagant and many more.
I have always dreamed of lacing tennis with laces in weaving. It’s time to start!
All in gradient
Use dye and dye with gradations; It’s pretty and fresh. In addition to dyeing, you will need petroleum jelly, baking soda and an old toothbrush.
This kind of dyeing is done in several steps to obtain the desired gradient. Vaseline is used to protect the sole (and sodium bicarbonate to remove petroleum jelly once the dye is fixed).
With textile paint, we can paint stripes as made on hand. It’s quite simple. We put masking tape parallel and painted (after removing the laces!).
Also, protect the soles with the masking tape, so you do not paint on them. The result is exceptional!
And for the winter, fur
Let’s not forget the winter sneakers! To give them a cosy look, nothing beats faux fur. Sew a strip of faux fur on the top of your high converses!
Making freehand drawings is one of the most creative ways to give an extra touch to your Converse. This type of decoration is particularly suitable for the utterly white model.
To do this, make sure you have markers ideal for decoration on fabric and proceed with the creation of any flourish or geometric figure that reflects your style.
If you want to customize in this way also the coloured Converse, you can always design and decorate the white tip of the shoe.
Those who are not very familiar with the design can opt for the application of small studs or beads on the sides of the Converse.
Place the stud on the outer surface of the canvas, press firmly and fix it by applying the respective screw to the inside of the shoe.
That’s it, and I hope you liked these 11 ideas! What’s your favorite?
