    Pimpin' my spikes

    Post by AudienceOfOne on Wed Oct 29, 2008 4:28 pm

    I'm going to pimp some of my old spikes. Hopefully it'll make them look a little better. These are the ones i'll do:
    nike zoom waffle XC (2006 version, red black grey)
    nike zoom waffle XC (2007 version, red and black camoflauge)
    nike zoom rival MD (last year, mostly red)
    nike zoom forever XC (red and black version. might not do these, still going to use them for indoor races)

    anyone else here ever done this before, like go oer spikes with sharpies, paint, or something?
    i'll take pics if they turn out decently i'll put them on here.

    No I never have. I only have two pairs of spikes and I use them both. You should dip your spikes in a can of hot pink paint then sprinkle it with sparkly dust. You know to look professional and stuff.

    My friend accidentally pimped his spikes; they were in a bag with a can of bright orange spray pain... the spray paint kind of exploded one day. I have to say though, the spikes looked pretty sweet. Very Happy

    and please post pictures when you do, Miler. Very Happy

    no, paint doesn't seem to stiffen them. and i doubt that the paint would come off in rain(as long as it's not washable paint).

    I pimped out my white converse last year. In art, we had to do an oil painting (that type of paint doesn't wash out), so I ended up doing a Jackson Pollock on my shoes. My mom made me trash them afterwards though Crying or Very sad

    I'm going to put up pics, not because they look great, but i need suggestions of what to do next. This is the next shoe i'll do:

    Suggestions?
    RWS's pink paint-and glitter idea would look good on this one. I won't be using theses again, btw. lolrivals.

    Here's what the first on looked like originally:

    Here's what it looks like now:





    All i did was make the upper gold, and make the inside swoosh black with a dark red border. Looks decent, any more i can do with this shoe?
    This is the nike zoom waffle XC '06 version i think, btw.

    I'm liking what I did with the other one better. This is ok though. I'm think maybe just go ahead and make this one all silver, what do you guys think? All i did so far was make everything but the non-strap and plastic material silver, and make the swoosh black.
