As soon as I saw the spiked heels in the recent MSGM AW12 collection (mentioned in my round up here
) I knew I would have to have a go at making a version myself. I used a pair of blood red heels courtesy of Tony Bianco
and spikes from Studs and Spikes
– I love the way the colour accentuates the spikes.
– 6 cone spikes
– A pair of leather/ suede heels (these are Tony Bianco ‘Karr‘)
– Dart Awl hole making tool (makes life way easier!)
– A screwdriver
or buy a complete studding kit here.
1. Look at the seam at the back of your heels and mark with pencil where you want the spikes to sit. You want the spikes to sit apart so that there isn’t too much strain on the seam.
2. Using your hole making tool, push through the seam and wiggle to create a hole.
3. Push the screw through the hole, using a screwdriver to twist if it is difficult to get through.
4. Attach your spikes to the screw by twisting.
5. Use the screwdriver to tightly screw the studs on. Make sure the screws are flush with the leather so your the back of your heels don’t get irritated.
Voila, all done! Simple right?
I think these dangerous looking heels look great paired with a more ladylike outfit like a lace skirt. Hope you like!
Keep your eyes peeled for more studding projects coming soon – let’s just say I’m completely addicted.
