I’ve wanted a pair of blue Keds since I first saw them a few years ago, but I haven’t needed new shoes and I generally try not to buy things unless I need them.
I love white summer dresses, and the notion of wearing them with a blue canvas shoe was well upon me on the last 70 degree day we had.
But then, last night while wandering through Payless, I found these little guys. Marked down and with a coupon, they were mine for $3.20. Oh yes, they were coming home with me.
I soaked the shoes for a half hour in a mixture of 1 part vinegar 3 parts water.
The bowl I had wasn’t really big enough for the shoes, so it was quite a process. I wanted them to be ombré, so most of the time was spent just dipping the toes. I let them in a little further as time went on, checking the color frequently.
