I would probably paint them black but I’m not that crafty not am I stylish haha, so glitter or whatever doesn’t really mesh well with animal print, in my opinion.

Nacka:  did you want your shoes to match your wedding color/s? Or match your dress? That’s the first thing you have to decide 🙂 it looks like the upper is a faux fur? That could be tricky.

I vote glitter on the faux fur part! Either a metallic like gold or silver, or whatever your wedding color is! I don’t think the cork looks bad at all, but I think it depends on the look you’re going for- is it a more casual/outdoor kind of setting?

Nacka:  you might be able to stipple on fabric paint. Is there some extra length to the strap you could test it on?

ETA: I don’t think trying to shave off the fur is a good idea. It would be really hard to get that to work evenly, and then you’d have a strangely textured surface to deal with.

Nacka:  Fabric paint on the fur in the colour of your choice. More paint on the cork in another/the same colour of your choice. More realistically: keep looking and find another pair of shoes you actually like the look of.

Glitter/paint the straps and decoupage a pretty floral paper on the cork!
