white paint (I tested both acrylic (if you can find one with resin that would be better) and spray paint) – I found acrylic left the most perfect lines.
nail polish remover
sand paper (optional)
1. tape off your shoes into stripes, you can eye ball it like I did or you can measure it and be perfect. You may want to tape off the soles and heel as well.
2. sponge acrylic paint (preferably a paint with resin) onto the non-taped part of the shoes. If you want to sand paper those non-taped areas first you may get better results. My shoes were too soft so I didn’t.
3. You can also spray paint them if you prefer, I just spray painted a top layer for a little shine and uniformity.
4. After they have dried…peel off the tape very slowly and carefully. Because the tape may take some of the paint with it.
