DIY: Jeffrey Campbell Tick Wedges Inspired

The other day I found a pair of my old hooker boots in my closet. Well, I ain't a hooker, but they do look like hooker boots. Hey, heels can be higher, hair can be bigger and mess can be messier… As long as you’re wearing something you like then good for you.

Lately I've being slightly obsessed with the Jeffrey Campbell tick wedges that I made my boots look like them. Do you like them?! I do. And that's a redundant question as either way it has been made, and I’m going to show you how:

Here are the steps

1. You will need a pair of think wedge boots, a hammer, and tacs... and a LOT of patience! This DIY took me about 2.5 hours.
 Original shoes... I've had these for more than 5 years now.

2. Hammer a line of tacs up and down the back of the boots

3. Start from the 2nd row to the bottom (you will have to eye it), put a tac on the 2nd row to bottom, then a tac on the very bottom, then a tac on the 2nd row etc… Then work your way row by row upwards.

4. Now do shoe number two, all over again. I did it while watching "He's Just Not That Into You", which turned out to be not a good movie in case you want to know...

And here is the final product! Hope you like it!
