The biggest struggle I have had with the Upcycle project was coming up with something to do! I woke up this morning and began to get dressed and went to put on my shoes and out of the corner of my eye I saw something; my old faithful pair of Sperry’s. They had served me for 6 years. When I finally got a new pair this fall I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away. We had been through too much together. My Sperry’s are going to be my upcycle project.
I plan to glue the shoes in the position they are in now together. Then I will mount both shoes and a nice piece of wood. Ideally, the wood will be stained to bring out some contrast to the worn leather of my shoes. This will make almost a trophy like piece of art that will be great to display in my room and preserve the legacy of my shoes forever.
