DIY Pretty Insoles

So I have a confession... I don't like to wear shoes.  I even kick them off at my desk at work.  The price I pay for comfort is grungy insoles.  I'm gonna spare you the before pictures and get straight to the pretty after shots:


 
This was so simple, you're gonna want to do it to all your shoes!  You just need some craft foam, (they sell sheets of it with a sticky side in packs of 18 at JoAnns and Michaels), a pair of pinking shears, some fabric scraps, and an insole.  I smoothed out my fabric scraps onto the sticky side of the craft foam, pulled an insole out of an old pair of tennis shoes & used it as a template to cut the fabric covered craft foam with pinking shears.

That is a great idea! I hate how the slip on shoes look so gross on the inside. With this idea they could be changed out often!

Genius! I was just perusing "designer insole" sights, because I need a pair for some shoes I just bought... Have seen them at DSW- But his is so much better! Definitely going to try this myself, as well as creating a back of the heel cushion... Could also probably just apply fabric on top of a pre-existing inner sole w/ spray tack, no? At any rate, you've got me thinking... Thanks for the great idea! :-)
