Default have you ever operated surgery on a shoe?

i didn't buy these shoes, my uncle gave it to me when he came to visit from the states a couple of years ago. i've only worn it a couple of times cause i'm not a big fan of it. it's a little stiff and the strap really bothers me. the strap is coming off.



so i was thinking, should i:

1. just cut off the strap, and leave part of it.

2. or take off the stitches, and rip it all off.

Depends on how much the straps matter to your liking of the shoes appearance. If you don't care about the straps at all, then take them off. They would be a pain the ass to walk around with them hanging off the sides...I'll just remove the straps and maybe keep them around as a memorabilia.

It depends:

1. It will solve the problem, but will effect the aesthetics.

2. Will also solve the problem, will take longer, may also make it ugly.

If it were me, I'd go with #2. Just remove as much as you can. Odds are it would look better than just cutting them off. (My friend cut straps off his D-Wades, looks weird.)

I did perform shoe surgery on a pair of my Reeboks to try and make jumpsoles. It worked, I wore them for like an hour and didn't touch them again, until I took off the part I added. (I was really bored one night.)
