I tried on the peep toe in the store…

They were pretty comfortable, even for one of my bridesmaids that has a pretty big foot. The only thing I didn’t like was it seemed that even when the size was a little snug my foot slid up to where it seemed my toes kinda stuck out of the peep.

That was the only thing I didn’t like and I wear mostly peep toes and don’t usually have that problem… otherwise for the heel height they were great.

I just picked up my dyed shoes yesterday! They are beautiful and comfortable. The only problem is that I found out that they are not waterproof 🙁 I was really bummed and told them so. Hello? I’m getting married in Seattle!!! Ugh, luckily it’s at the end of summer so, hopefully, it won’t rain. Maybe I’m just not in the loop becasue when I suggested that they tell customers before spending $70 on shoes that the color will run if they get wet they basically said that it’s common knowledge that dyeable shoes are not waterproof. Big bummer.

i had shoes dyed at david’s!  see below for a pic.  they seem pretty comfortable but i haven’t worn them long.  in all likelihood i’ll just be wearing them for the ceremony and first part of the reception.

A friend had the DB dyeable shoes for both her and bridesmaids. It rained on her wedding day and she didnt even think about the fact that the dye may run. Her bridesmaids feet were purple walking down the isle (and it didn’t wash off for a few days). While quite comical now, she wasn’t too pleased at the time, though who could blame her!

@candy84: Another friend tried that after hearing about the purple feet. Didn’t work.

I was thinking about that but I’m nervous because they are a different material (satin). I was going to take them to a shoe shop and see what they suggest. I just really don’t want to end up with a purple dress!

I attached some pics so you can see but they are a little dark.

My bridesmaids and I all got the Shellie peep-toe shoes dyed in Watermelon.  They’re extremely comfortable – but be forewarned that the dye job comes out a bit lighter than the color swatch – something to do with the different materials.  Also they are completely NOT waterproof.

If you’re concerned about blisters, I heard Bandaid just came out with some kind of roller gel you rub on your feet that protects them from rubbing shoe fabric.

I just orderd the Shellie peep toe shoes to be dyed Pearl. They seem to be comfortable. Did anyone else have to go down a 1/2 size? This seemed to be the case with me. My normal size was really big!
