Commonly Asked Questions:
What type of shoes do you recommend to sparkle?
In order for us to sparkle your shoes they need to be made of suede, satin or canvas for the areas that you want us to sparkle. Look for shoes that are durable and made with quality material because after we sparkle them, you will wear them for many years to come! For boots, we recommend they have zippers vs. having to pull them on to prevent rubbing your sparkle off! See the examples we provided and have fun picking out your new shoes! Shop clearance racks too! Check out our favorite sparkly shops for places we love to shop!
Is it okay to Sparkle old, worn shoes?
YES!!! We love to make new boots/shoes shine bright again! Even if they are discolored or have scuff places, a new SPARKLE will make your favorite shoes new again! We have had great success with old fake uggs and Toms.
Does it matter what color my shoe is that I want sparkled?
It does not matter what color your shoe is because the sparkle will out shine the color!
Should I wear my shoes before I send them off to be sparkled?
It is best to wear your new shoes for at least a week before we sparkle so that the natural “mold” of your shoe forms which will hold the sparkle. Even make old shoes new again with a little sparkle!
Can I wear my sparkle in the rain/snow?
We have tested our sparkle in the rain and snow and have had great success! It is not recommended that you stand in a rain puddle or wade through snow piles – but that’s a whole other conversation :)
Will my sparkle get all of over my house?
You can expect a little sparkle to shed the first couple of times you wear your new shoes. This is perfectly normal. You will have plenty left on your shoes to shine! It is recommended that you wear your shoes before we sparkle to allow for normal creases in the shoes/boots to develop. Most often Sparkle sheds where your shoe normally creases during normal wear, however broken in shoes have less shed. Also if you normally scuff the inside of your feet together Sparkle typically sheds here too.
