They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but not every girl nor their best friend can afford these precious gems. Swarovski crystals are my best friend and this is my story:
My name is Mandy and I am the founder of Diamond Kicks based in Melbourne, Australia. For all those who know me well, know that I have a huge addiction to buying shoes, in particular sneakers. I have a personal collection of over 50 pairs of Nike sneakers in my closet and I continue to buy more. I am always looking for the newest sneakers that are unique and will make me stand out from the crowd which is what inspired this idea.
One night while browsing online for a new pair of my beloved Nikes, I came across an idea to customize my own Nike sneakers using crystals. I bought some superglue and some cheap crystals from the local craft store and started glueing. At first the shoe looked fantastic but after wearing once, the cheap crystals stopped shining and started falling off. Having already ruined the shoes with glue, I decided to give it another go using a special waterproof glue and Swarovski crystals. The shoe looked spectacular and I forgot about all other 49 pairs in my closet. These would become my everyday shoes.
After weeks of wear, numerous compliments and no crystals falling off, I knew I had a great idea. What girl wouldn't want to add some bling to their life?
I started off early 2016 selling a few pairs of shoes through social media and the feedback was fantastic but I knew I needed to take this further than just Facebook and Instagram so I decided to go online and here I am!
