I’ve tried on a lot of shoes but the ones I found most comfortable were super light ivory 🙁 I wanted to dye them wisteria to match my bridesmaids’ dresses, then strass them myself, so an exact match isn’t necessary. I just wanted a good base color.
I called my local cobbler before buying them and asked him if he could dye a shoe that wasn’t diamond white and he said he COULD but it wouldn’t be a perfect match (again, not a big deal) and also warned me that sometimes there are bleach spots.
Think this would be all that bad if I’m putting my own crystals on them? Theoretically, I could cover them up, if there were any, right?
Here are the shoes (I’m removing the ruffle with a seam ripper which is really easy and only sewn on with two stitches):
