- a pair of sneakers
- 150 – 200 brass cone spikes
- E6000 adhesive
- a disposable container or popsicle stick
Start by squeezing a small amount of E6000 into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Dispensing a small amount at a time prevents the glue from drying too quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a small dollop of glue onto the back of a spike. (Click images to enlarge)
Press the spike into the sneaker, holding it in place for a few seconds.
Continue adding spikes along the shoe’s baseline and working upwards in horizontal lines.
Arrange the spikes, without glue, into awkward spaces before attaching them.
Glue spikes onto the heel cap, again working horizontally.
Allow the shoes to dry overnight before wearing them!
