Commando M

Commando M shoes poppy 6

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a DIY with these Commando M shoes! Commando M was a big hit in the 80’s and is now back 30 something years later. I am so excited to be one of the kiwi bloggers they picked to send a pair to and customise in my own special way! So here is what I did…

Firstly I penciled on my poppy drawings. Using fabric paint, I painted the red onto the shoes and left to dry. Some spots were definitely more difficult than others! I wanted the overall style to look hand drawn so left little areas of white. I then used a black permanent marker to outline the poppies and give them some form by shading.

Voila! All done. I also had fun with the laces and working out different ways they could be laced. Make sure you check out the Commando M Facebook page for other style ideas and to grab your own pair!
