I love my all white Nike sneakers. But, the soles turned yellow sitting in my closet. I was too heartbroken to just throw them out - they are very comfortable and I have so much love for them. I tried a lot of different Pinterest ideas to try to make the sole white again and none worked! If you know of a way to reverse the yellowing, please let me know in the comments below. As you can see, I did not let the yellow get to me. I tried multiple ways to change the color.




I first tried to paint the sole of the shoe with silver acrylic paint, but I soon realized I needed to have LOTS of layers before getting good coverage. So, I looked at our spray paint supply and found a metallic gold. Next step, taping off the shoe!!



Check out the shoes after a little gold spray paint! I also spray painted the hardware on the laces to match the sole.






What do you think? I love them! They look so much better gold and now, I can actually use them. I loved these shoes because they were comfortable and all white, but after the sole turned yellow, I had no choice but to change the color. I know, I could have purchased new shoes, but I feel like it would have been a waste of money because the shoes have no holes and are in really good condition. 
Metallic shoes are in right now anyway, right?
