i have an intense love for duct tape. its a bit scary at times. but i was bored, had some old shoes that were falling apart. i decided to fix them with duct tape and ended up covering the entire shoe. so i now have amazing "new" shoes of epic proportions!
find some nasty old shoes, duct tape, and a sharp object. i used some tiny scissors.
take the shoelaces out. then cover the tongue in duct tape.
cover the rest of the shoe. i covered the toe then the rim of the shoe. then the rest. if your shoe has laces, cover the holes so there isn't any of the shoe showing, only duct tape.
take your sharp object and poke through the tape where the holes for the laces are.
i didn't like the white laces i had so i found some epic ones. so put the laces in and go frolic in your spiffy new duct taped shoes of amazingness
