I think most people use glue instead of hotfix to crystal their shoes. You should be able to use some sort of E3000 or endurance craft glue.

I used to make pageant dresses and I would glue the beads with strong craft glue and never had any problems.

This one has an applicator so you can dot the glue then add the crystal.

@SandyToes: That glue I recommended doesn’t have much of a smell. I wouldn’t use E3000 on fabric anyways because it tends to be runny and take too long to dry.

I use the jolees hot fix tool with the jolees hotfix swarovski crystals..I love to bedazzle everything and jolees are the only ones that really stay on even through the washing machine many times. Hope this helps 🙂

I use SS16, SS12 SS9 to get a mix of sizes. I find it makes the shoe more dimmensional and is easier to get the stones together. It also helps if you use real Swarovski crystals opposed to crystals purchased from traditional crafting stores. They tend to have less sparkle and fire and also dont mesh as well when glueing on a shoe.
