Bless the day that sneakers were invented. They’re the most versatile, comfortable and sometimes even the most fashionable pair of shoes wrapped all into one.

We are now wearing them to work, paired with jeans or with a dress, there are truly no limits.

However, after wearing them day in and day out, and season after season, the adventure starts wearing a bit thin. But hey, why not see those old pair of sneakers as a canvas and turn them into something brand new?

We’ve scoured the internet for some great tips on preserving your chucks to reflect your style of spirit.

Select your favourite and let the adventure live on:

  • For the fierce, wild and daring

•    Add some glitter

Check out this tutorial for a basic how-to.

•    For the flower-power and rainbow being

•    For the ultimate hipster

This needs no step-by-step  tutorial, simply let the writer in you go wild.
