DIY Studded Sneakers

Studding sneakers has been on our DIY to-do list for awhile now. But the idea of hand piercing hundreds of holes through thick canvas was daunting enough to allow such procrastination. Enter E6000, the crème de la crème of adhesives. As you probably know by now, it’s our secret weapon for quickly and effectively attaching metal to fabric. So after the recent release of Vans‘ brushed twill pastel Authentics, we thought it was the perfect summer shoe to adorn. So grab some glue and let’s get studding! And don’t forget to enter our giveaway, after the jump, for a chance to win a pair of our favorite kicks . . .

You’ll need:

Start by squeezing a small amount of E6000 into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Dispensing a small amount at a time prevents the glue from drying too quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a small dollop of glue onto the back of a spike. (Click images to enlarge)

Press the spike into the sneaker, holding it in place for a few seconds.

Continue adding spikes along the shoe’s baseline and working upwards in horizontal lines.

Arrange the spikes, without glue, into awkward spaces before attaching them.

Glue spikes onto the heel cap, again working horizontally.

Allow the shoes to dry overnight before wearing them!

We loved these brushed twill pastel sneakers so much that Vans has offered to give away a pair, of any color choice, to two lucky readers. Simply leave a comment below, check out Vans on Twitter and Facebook, and a winner will be selected at random on Thursday, May 17th. (Sorry, limited to US residents only. Sizes and color subject to availability. Good luck! xx Contest is now closed. Congratulations to Enna S. and Carol J.!)

    Awesome. I love that you don’t have to poke hundreds of holes in your shoes to make this happen. Would love to win a pair, but if not, I’ll just have to do this to some other lucky pair of sneakers.

  25. Love Vans, such comfy shoes. I wear a pair of their classics for work pretty much everyday! I’d love a pair of their new pastel babies. I’d wear them in the lovely powder blue you featured, or the pink mist, or the pale banana! If there was a mint color I’d go for that too! I definitely liked Vans on facebook.

    Good luck everyone!

    I actually need to stud my vans. I hardly ever wore them because they are white, and I have trouble pulling that look off. Studding them would most likely make me wear them as often.

I’ll make sure I try this soon!

    QUESTION: What do you do with the “thingies” under the stud? The ones you normally use to attach the spike to the shoe? Do you break them off or fold them?

    nice DIY idea – even better outcome, but i would advise against using this adhesive. E6000 is incredibly toxic, so much so that if you read the fine print on the tube it clearly states that it hosts cancer causing agents. i used it not more than twice before throwing it out, the fumes made me feel unbelievably sick…

    I wanted to ask…do any craft shops sell the studs? I’ve seen a lot of people buy the studs from studsandspikes.com but I wasn’t sure if it was reliable….

    It’s scary when your kids mature enough to tell you, ” I want REAL clothes and SNEAKERS, no more Target and consignment shops Mom!” So her first pair where green Vans and A&F kids clothes! Imagine getting spikes….envy of the Fifth grade!!

    Hello. Where can I buy the Vans California brushed twill in powder blue? I’ve looked everywhere on the internet, but it’s literally wiped off the earth or something. Nordstrom is sold out, not that Nordstrom ever will ship to my country anyway.

    I REALLY NEED THESE VANS, these exact vans! The blue bell ones are just too blue, if you get my point. These are perfect.

    THANK YOU.

    I have pastel green and I think it would be nice to have a pair and people at school will be like how did you make it and all I have to say I got it from Erica that did a D.I.Y tutorial on this website.

    The materials seem really well made and the style overall is comfortable. Initially, they felt a little stiff but I think I just need to wear them a little more to break them in. Very warm and comfy!
