So I Googled…. And discovered that these boots were a limited edition of a collaboration of Timberland boots and Billionaire Boys Club. The edition sold out, I learned, but you can still buy them on eBay, if you have the $$$$$.
I started with an inexpensive pair of hiking boots from Payless, but you can find similar boots at Target and other less-pricey outlets. Since they are made of faux suede, which means they are actually made of fabric, there’s no need to prep the surface.
Just get out your brushes and paints and go! There are several blues you could choose from: Indigo, Pearl Blue, and Neopaque Blue. I chose Indigo, which is the darkest of the three. One bottle did the job; it took two coats.
The second step was to tint the soles from a tan color to blue, so I brushed and dabbed on Staz-On stamping ink in Ultramarine. I wore protective gloves when I did this so I didn’t stain my hands. Takes days for it to wear off! It took 2 coats plus some touchups.
Finally, two crowning touches, the gorgeous royal blue laces, which I purchased, and the silver shoelace tips, which I also purchased.
This was a VERY easy project and lots of fun. All I need now is cool weather so I can wear them!
