I’ve been totally dying to add a new pair of Birkenstock’s to my collection of Summer sandals, and was uber excited when SoftMoc approached me on a DIY and style challenge. You often relate a pair of Birkenstock’s to camping, cottaging, or an outdoor activity. But honestly… have you seen the metallic Birkenstock sandals on the market?! They’re super fashionable and for those of you who own a pair (I know many of you do!) they are incredibly comfortable and long lasting.
Inspired by the metallic versions and a recent gold leaf starter kit I purchased for a home DIY project, I decided test out this gold leaf kit on my newly acquired Birkenstock sandals. I am so happy with the end result and can’t WAIT to show you how I style them. For those who have been curious about gold leafing … yes, you can and should gold leaf your footwear!
