There is NO WAY you’d be able to take those from black to hot pink. The amount of bleach, etc that would take would eat the fabric, first of all.

BUT you could see if you could find them in white, and then dye those pink…

It depends on the fibre content of the fabric- natural fibres like cotton and silk use different dyes than synthetics like polyester.

Any pale colored fabric is dyable. Finding the correct dye for the fabric type is the trick!

It also depends on how many details are on the shoe.  For my wedding, even though my SIL had a pair of shoes that said they were dyeable, the rosette on the front of the shoe made the dye job look kind of patchy in that area.
