I have found some beautiful white/ivory simple satin shoes made by Nina. I really want to dye them green (a color from my bridemaids dress). What kind of shoe fabric can you dye?
I don’t want to buy these shoes and send them away only to look terrible because they can’t hold the dye. I know there are millions of dyeable shoes out there but I just don’t like any of them.
Fill me in with any experience or advice you have! Thanks!!

Dyeable shoes are usually made from satin or silk, but they have to have a special coating on them. You should probably call their customer service number and ask them if their shoes are dyeable just to be safe.

I did and she said they can’t guarentee the effectiveness of the dyeing process. Maybe I just like the shoes too much to accept it? I really need pea green/moss shoes!

I would definitely look for a dyeable shoe – I think most satin shoes that are not specifically dyeable have a special layer on top – something about the fabric just won’t absorb more color.
has a good selection of dyeable shoes, payless has them too I think! Good luck.

They have a large array of dyeable shoes on Zappos.com. That’s where I got my dyable wedding shoes that the bridal store owner helped to dye for $10.
