If you've watched the Oscars, AMA's or any type of award shows lately, you've likely caught a glimpse of some pretty stylish heels embellished with hundreds and thousands of tiny crystals worn by stars like Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna. Adding those tiny crystals is a process known as "strassing", and although you probably don't know of any famous fashion designers who will create strassed apparel just for you, you can strass your own shoes, only for a lot less!

One of the nicest things to be able to do with shoes that you love and don't want to throw away is to try to work on them. Many people will resurface their shoes or perhaps add layers to them to protect them. Other people take to using paint or other colorful chemicals to add color to the shoes to bring back the vibrancy that the shoe once had. No matter which way you are going to try, you are going to notice that it fades after a while. This is why many people choose to undergo Strassing for their shoes instead of simply adding layers of material or paint.

Being able to decorate shoes is one of the very best things that a person can ever do. Nothing is quite worse than buying a pair of heels or shoes that you intend to wear to a nice function and finding out when you arrive that other people have the same exact shoe. This happens quite often in places where the amount of stores are limited, or where most of the patrons at the party or event shop in the same place. There is, however, a great way to be sure that you can make even the most boring shoe into a lovely work of art! It does not have to be an incredibly expensive or high fashion shoe, either, any high heel or sneaker can do. You can even choose to do this with slippers and sandals.
