I saw on pintrest on how to give your old shoes a new sole.

I tried it on a pair of shoes I have only worn once.

You will need

  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • 3 disposable contaners or bowls - I used dixie cups. One for white, second for color, and the last one for the acetone you'll need to clean your brush. Pour as needed or it will dry on you before you are done.
  • 1 white nail polish
  • 1 matte colored nail polish your choice
  • painters tape
  • craft paint brush

*** My results are in the replies.

First protect the are you are working on its messy... And use painters tape to stay in the lines. I recommend cutting it in small strips so its easier to work with or if you have the skinny kind even better. Clean the soles with rubbing alcohol and use a white nail polish to even out the color, use a craft paint brush to do so.

After the white polish coat has dried begin brushing the color of your choice do 1 coat and then a 2nd just like nails! I used the back of a chair to dry on. It will take about 15 minutes to fully dry.

FINISHED PRODUCT!
