Channel Your Inner 80s Teen with DIY Neon Converse

Child of the 80s or 90s? Us too! And we have some seriously fond memories of our old school sneaks with VELCRO® fasteners. That’s why when we got our latest shipment of colorful Velcro Industries goodness, we immediately thought of one thing: Sneakers 2.0 using One-Wrap® Straps.

3. Fold over the top and lace through the next hole.
