I worked at a bridal shop that also dyed shoes. The advice that we provided was if you scotchguard them, the color won’t run. BUT if you want to dye them afterwards, you can’t scotchguard them.  So if you don’t want to redye them, definitely scotchguard the shoes before walking in a damp grass or potentially getting them wet!

How do you go about scotchguarding them? I bought some white dyables for the wedding, wore them white, but want to dye them a fun color for re-wearing…

That’s great to know, I’ve been worrying about this because I don’t want to sweat the color onto my feet or anything.
