DIY Chloe Braided Sandal

May 22, 2013 12:02 pm

I fell in love with these Chloe braided shoes when I spotted them on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast but with a very expensive price tag, I knew it was DIY time!

I found the base shoe at ASOS (ASOS white version), but these Steve Madden’s or Zara’s would also work great.

 With only a few simple tools (leather cord, scissors, ruler, hot glue gun) it’s really easy to make. The best part of this tutorial is when you you are sick of the braid, simply cut it off and your shoe will be good as new. It took me an embarrassing amount of time to learn the braid, so if the video went too fast, check out my colour coded braid guide below!

This is a super fun and easy tutorial.  If you try it, leave me a comment on how it turned out!

Happy braiding!

  • This is a really cool project I might try on my own. I learned the braiding technique a few months ago and I use it to line flip flops and then stitch beads to them 🙂

      Awesome! It’s one of those techniques you can really use on a ton of different projects to get different results, I love the flipflop and beads idea 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, and let me know how it goes if you try this particular style! xo Alana

  • These turned out great! What a great shoe for summer.

      Thanks Nicola, they really are great, plus tan sandals make your legs look longer. Best news ever!
