Okay, time for the DIY tutorial!
My feet practically lives in Havaianas when it isn’t in work footwear aka. heels or flats. The thing is, flip flops should have the option to also look a little dressed up! So here’s my simple tutorial for a detachable laced up pair of sandals!
What you need:
- Slim Havaianas or other flip flops
- Black cord
- 4 big jumprings
- 4 small jumprings
- Lobster clasp
- Flat nose pliers
- Round nose pliers
Take the black cord, tuck it under your feet with both sides. Try wrapping the cord around your leg so that you can determine how long you want it to be. Then, cut your desired length. You should have 4 separate black cords now!
Make a small loop at the end of the cord. Take the small jumpring, wrap it around the loop and tighten with the flat nosed pliers.
Take the big jumpring and put it through the loop.
Repeat for the next 3 cords!
Attach the jumprings to each Havaianas strap.
Wrap the string in a criss-cross ‘X’ way and voila!
In the event that you want to remove the cords, it is easily detachable! Enjoy your DIY Lace Up Sandals! x
