Maybe see if you can buy plain shoe clips. Then you can glue/solder the earrings to the clip while not having to permanently attach them to your shoe (and you can wear them on other shoes then too!)

I used the clip part of the earings to hold them to the shoe and then glued them in place.  How do they fit on the shoe since you broke it off?

I would second the shoe clips unless you wanted to permanently alter the shoes.

I just did this with my shoes the other day.  Bought a pair of clip-ons from Ebay for $9.  I left the clip on the back and they attached to my shoes perfectly.  I went ahead and hot-glued them to secure them, to make sure they’d stay in place.

If you don’t want to glue them down, my alternative was to buy the actual shoe clips that NDBee showed.  Good luck!

@Wannabe-diy-bride: I read online that the best places to get them are ebay or craft stores.

Not sure which part of ND you’re in, but I’m guessing Fargo craft stores would have some, or Bismarck/Minot (the bigger cities). Smaller cities may as well- might be worth it to call a few up before heading out to see if they carry them. Otherwise I’d just order some on ebay if you’re comfortable (a few sets, incase of goof ups).

I love this idea! I def. agree with NDBee – I think the clips would work best. Good luck!

Can you either temporarily sew or wire them on under the knot part?
