DIY Miu Miu Sneakers
Do you remember the last time you Sharpie-d or embellished a pair of sneakers? For us, it had been far too long so when we saw Miu Miu‘s latest glittery sneakers for fall, we were anxious to bling out our own pair using a pair of classic Vans as our canvas. But honestly, what fun is it unless you can DIY a pair too? Leave a comment and we’ll select a reader, at random, to choose their own pair of DIYable Vans. More details after the jump!

Don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to DIY your own pair of Canvas Authentic or Slip-On Vans! (top image by Bruce Weber via Tumblr, rest of images by HonestlyWTF)
