Two easy footwear refashions. Used a utility knife to cut open the toes and cut off the ends, then sanded the edges smooth. Some E6000 to close leather, held closed with a few clothes pins.
My first attempt to make open-toed footwear. They were in rather poor shape, so they became the trial pair if I wasn’t happy with the result (and I wasn’t…)
This was the pair I didn’t want to screw up…
The ‘dent’ across the toe - less obvious in the photo - combined with the stretched-out width, gave the toe a weird bulge. (I guess the original owner also had very wide feet.) So they ended up in a thrift store for $7 - the only way I could ever afford Ferragamo shoes and I had a plan to make them look less odd…
I wouldn’t want to screw up Ferragamos either! I think the open toe worked out. Were you just tired of them? They looked in good shape in the before picture.
Wow! Never would have thought to do this; they look nice after the refashion.
That is cool. Never thought of making changes too shoes like that!
They were in good shape except for the weird ‘dent’ across the toe - not as obvious in the photo - which is probably why they were in a thrift store. I hoped making them open-toed would make it less obvious. Since the price was $7, I’d thought I’d give it a try. (I guess Ferragamo isn’t well known here, or at least by the person doing the pricing.)
Cute! There look like they came that way! Great job!!!
The shoes turned out great!
I looked up Ferragamo shoes. Whoa.
You’re right, those had a weird bulbous toe. I hope they are more comfy for you!
