Platform boots have been all the rage, but what do you do when they start to give you trouble? Here are some tips for fixing platform boots so they last longer. Enjoy!
Common problems and solutions to fixing your platform boots
1. Wide platforms
"I have a pair of boots that are too big. They might be the wrong size, but I can't figure out getting them back into shape! If the platform on your boots is too wide, use a shoe stretcher to make them narrower.
2. Too high
What if the platform is too high and difficult to walk in, and you feel like you will fall off? If the platform is too high and makes it difficult to walk in your boots, use a saw to cut off some height. Better?
I bet now you are comfortable walking in your boots. For this DIY to work, you must be keen and pay attention to the details if you enjoy walking in your shoes.
3. Unstable heel
I don't know how many times I've had this issue. The heel is the most important part of platform boots, and it must stay like that. If the heel of your boot keeps coming off, use super glue or epoxy to fix it in place.
Super glue is a quick fix to solve this problem, and you can carry on with your day's activities without any complaints from your boots. Simple right?
4. Fabric of boots start wearing out
You know what they say, if at first, you don't succeed, try and try again, just like your boots.
If your platform boots look a little beat up, you can spice them up by putting new fabric or laces in!
You can also add glitter or sequins for a fun look!
5. You don't like the color
Think the boots you bought are a bit boring? If you don't like the color or design of your boots, paint them with spray paint designed for shoes.
