202: just my luck

I own a pair of Marc Jacobs' inspired flats. I picked these up from Market Village in Markham, Ontario. They're adorable and I love them!

Cute shoes eh?...

welll...not so much anymore

It seems that I wear shoes in a strange manner...
Why does all my footwear fall apart?

What is this? It's like that weird cotton ball-y faux halloween spiderwebs!

I don't even...

I'm going to attempt to repair these shoes that I can actually wear them again. Maybe I'll share my mini project sometime soon!

Do you ever wear your shoes until they fall apart? I guess I can say that it happens to me a lot.

  1. oh no :( those are so so adorable! I am so obsessed with those Marc Jacobs flats but they're too pricey so I recently also blogged about a pair I found online for waaay cheaper lol. 
    do you drag your feet when you walk? Because I know I do that so my shoes, specially flats, fall apart quicker than other people's. 
    hope you can fix them! 

  2. I have the EXACT same problem, and it kills all of my flats. I supinate, meaning I distribute my weight on my feet unevenly, and my shoes are all worn down on the outer part of the heel. It's really unfortunate because I can't keep a favorite pair of shoes for too long, they just fall apart. So sad, so sad. Inserts help, but not all of my shoes accommodate inserts.

  3. aww those flats are the cutest! how sad that they decided to fall apart! :(

    The Niknok Style

  4. I've done that. :( I had a pair of gorgeous black coach flats. I wore those babies until they wore a hole in the bottom of the sole. It was a sad day when they met the garbage can.

  5. try an industrial adhesive. i found some vintage leather shoes at a thrift store and the soles were becoming detached from the shoe and glue solved that problem real quick :)

  6. its ok it happens to me a lot.. doesn't look like they where made all that well.. but they are super cute I hope you can fix them :) I use E6000 for a lot of glueing needs and it works really well if you can pick some of that up :)

  7. There is something for just that! It's called Shoe Goo, I've used it on my boots because I tend to pull them off instead of unlacing them. They work really well!

  8. Happens to me a lot... My mom thinks I dont walk well!!

    But I generally buy cheaper shoes for daily wear and maybe a lil' more expensive for a formal thing..
    I live in India, and we do get a lot of shoes (flats and sandals) under 8 usd, but they do not last very long.
    I once saw these studded flats for 4 usd and so I bought them in 3 colours! And a month later all of them had 'sole' problems..

    Now steps in the cobbler, again in India to replace the sole of my shoe cost 2 usd..

    If you examine all my shoes, the all have stitches and glue marks on the inner sides, which the cobbler has worked on! Don't think I'd ever live without him!!
