Bought coloriffics online from endless.com  — shoes were under $40.00 — custom color and dye from my local shoe cobbler  was about $30.00 (a little high, but worth it).  I was very happy.  They technically were not dyables, but they were white satin and they dyed perfectly fine and the color did not run.  I good cobbler does not need the special satin that dyable shoes are made of to get the job done.  It just took them longer to dry (3 days).

I’ve worn dyeable shoes as a bridesmaid before.

The only word of warning is that they are often not desirable for outdoor weddings – wet grass or puddles will cause spotting and the color to become uneven or run. 

If your wedding and reception are indoors, they’re a great option!

If you have a specific color you want its best to have a swatch for them so they have something to compare with. I also would recommend looking to see if you can’t find a shoe already in the color that you are looking for. Dyeables can be scary because they do have a tendency of bleeding if it rains or anything. What color shoe are you looking for?

Here’s the thread I started asking about fuchsia shoes. The bees found a ton for me! I wound up getting the unlisted’s I mention at the bottom off of overstock.com. They’re already sold out of fuchsia on 6pm. I think I may have literally gotten the last pair out there for cheap (I paid $27 with shipping and all). Can’t remember if these were listed on the thread, they have a low heel and look really cute. So I don’t know anything about dyables, but maybe this can help?
