Dyeing My Own Shoes

Hello: I will be in a wedding in June and wanted to save money by dying my own shoes. I know Rit sells a variety of colors. Can I achieve good results dying my own shoes? What is the best process to use? Thanks, Kate

Hi Kate,
I don’t recommend trying this unless you are willing to be totally unattached to the outcome. It’s hard to get the color even, without streaking, etc. Plus, Peau de soie shoes are mostly polyester, which can’t be dyed using Rit or reactive dyes. Send them to the professionals. Sorry,
