But hold up, you won’t want to ditch them just yet! As it turns out, it’s super easy to DIY the lackluster footwear in your current possession and upgrade each pair to its fullest, color-capped potential.

Wanna know how we did it? From intel on everything from spray-painting techniques to taping like a pro, keep reading for four simple steps that'll turn your drab shoes into cool, hue-tipped kicks — no fancy footwork (or big bucks) required.
