DIY leather patch shoes


I was in awe when I saw these Acne Chopper Sue shoes from their AW10 collection. What a great concept! I love the layering of patches, the architectural shapes, the mixture of shine with matte, and the metal rivets really finish it off. Here are the steps to create your own… I used a pair of oxfords, but I think this detail would look swell on a variety of different shoes.


And a special thank you to the beautiful and stylish Juley of Swankheights for featuring Swellmayde on her blog. Truly appreciative!! Please vote for her on Refinery29’s Next Style Blogger Contest using your Facebook! :)
