Look at what you can make with our rivets! Transform a pair of boring, solid-coloured shoes into something unique and stylish. Take inspiration from the major fashion houses and then do it yourself. TIP! Replace the shoelaces with satin ribbon. It's a simple detail that makes a big difference. Rivets are super cool, but they can be a little finicky to apply. One way to make it easier is to fold "claws" with flat-nose pliers and then glue on the rivets with 100% glue. Let the glue dry completely and the rivets will be secure.
