    How can i paint my Shimano R-310

    OKay so i have the shimano R-310 cycling shoes and i am sort of sick of the color and i just want them to look different. So i was wondering if there is any way i could use some sort of paint to paint over them.... Would paint marker stay on the smooth surface of the shoe? And if not, what do you think would stay on the surface of the shoes?

    Those little surgical booties over them would work ok I guess.

    If you are going to a darker color, you might stand a chance...

    Regular paint probably won't work...you need something flexible....You might try fabric paint......

    If you scuff the leather up a bit with sandpaper it should stick.
