I recently saw a pair of Steve Madden pumps with bejeweled heels. You can recreate the look for a cheaper price by getting dark-colored pumps and clear diamante. Cover the heels with the clear diamante for a sophisticated touch.

Metallic oxford shoes are also all the rage. But rather than settle for texture-less metallic oxford shoes, add a bit more “oomph” to your footwear using rhinestones. Glue it on the sides or just the toecaps of the oxford shoes.

Make sure you are using high quality rhinestones and use high quality adhesive such as E6000, araldite rapid or strong super glue to stick it on your footwear. You don’t want these faux jewels falling off of your shoes every time you take a step.

Diamantes are available in various colors so you can find the color that best matches your shoe color. Clear diamantes are great if you’re not too sure about the outcome of your DIY project. This actually works great for dark shoe colors. It makes dressy shoes such as pumps and wedges look a tad more sophisticated.

If you are feeling a bit bold, go for the contrasting look. Choose hot pink rhinestones to cover the toecaps of your plain white flats. You can inject color without using acrylic paint.

So you see, there are hundreds of ways to make your ugly-looking shoes more attractive. Rhinestones are easy to work with as they are flexible. You can create different shapes and images on different kinds of shoes to get the look you want. You don’t need to be decked in jewels.
