Create your own gold tipped shoes with these super easy DIY instructions:
Simply have on hand or purchase liquid gold paint, a paint brush, tape, scissors and the pair of shoes or boots you want to turn into gold tipped beauties. (This is great for covering up scuff marks as well.)
Begin by taping off the area you want to paint gold; make sure to tape the sole of the shoe as well. Mix up the gold paint in the jar and brush it onto the shoe with the brush; add two coats minimum for complete coverage. To make your gold capped shoes extra sparkly, like the orange flats above, add some gold glitter in with your paint.
Let the shoes dry completely and remove the tape carefully. It’s that simple to create DIY gold-tip shoes!
