    I just ran into a whole buncha Luis Vuitton 'left over' fabric if you will and I want to throw that shit on MY ADIDAS.

    Ya bling.

    Anyone know how to do anything like this?

    I was thinking just careful cutting and spray adhesive then some kind of water proofing? I don't know.

    Holler back.

    the only way to tell if its real is if you bought it from a arab/black dude selling it out of his trunk at your local liqoure stores parking lot. then its definetly real.

    im not speaking for everyone here, but most of us aren't skilled in the cobbler's line of work, so do what everyone tells every toy who comes on here asking for ink recipes and shit of that nature, experiment and find out for yourself what works, homes:rolleyes:

    Yeah i took a gucci hat i had and cut it up and added it to my shoes before. I just measured the size of the area that need to be covered very carefully or made stencils for the tongue since it was curved. Then I applied the strips of Gucci fabric to the leather of the shoe with very light coats of super glue so that it doesnt squish out onto the leather of the shoes. When i was done they were pretty fresh.

    my boy did this with blank bandanas with white bucket paint splashed on um for his uptowns, he used superglue but then graduated onto using rubbercement, he never water proofed um because he would always re do them for every outfit, kinda like a one time thing, but i dont see why any water proof spray you can pick up at foot locker wouldnt do the trick
