Style For Style: No More Visible Price Tags

I've come to learn that anything inappropriately visible is not pretty: VPLs, VBLs (Visible Bra Lines), and now VPTs (Visible Price Tags). When you have a gorgeous shoe, like this Report Signature Guada Suede T-Strap Pump ($195), you don't want a tacky price tag that's stuck on the inside sole to take away from its beauty.

To see how to get rid of annoying VPTs,

  • First, try to remove as much of the tag as possible.
  • Take a piece of paper towel and wet it with hot water.
  • Rub the wet paper towel against the sticky price tag until it's fairly moist.
  • Once the price tag is wet, rub the price tag off with your fingers — in back and forth motions. Price tag and goo should come off without any difficulty!

what i find is very helpful is use a blow dry on the bottom of the shoe to get the sticker loose for it to be easy to peel off .. or you can use a lighter but just becareful

Eh I opt for GooGone like lawchick, actually it's what I clean my shoes' soles with every time I wear them too, and as a result I have a flawless and beautiful collection even after I take them for a stroll:)

I will have to try this. My aunt works for a shoe company so she gives me tons of samples and they all have SAMPLE, PLEASE RETURN TO ____ DEPARTMENT, or FALL 2006 COLLECTION on the bottoms and I try to get it off but I always have the goo collecting dirt!

I have used "Goo Gone" to get these off before without hurting the shoes. It's natural (made from oranges) and cheap - you can get it at Home Depot and places like that!

I don't know how safe it is on fabrics, but you could use some glue-be-gone stuff on the bottom of the shoe to get rid of sticky residue. It usually works pretty well for me.

I have a pair of shoes that I haven't been able to get the sticky part of the label off, so I'm left with dirt and crap stuck to the sole. I actually used nail varnish remover but it hasn't worked. The shop must have used super-glue on the feckin price tag! :rant:
