i don’t think you’ll be able to dye them.

i really like them! there’s so little to the actual shoe that it’s definitely not too much pink.

I would take them to a bridal shop and ask them. You may be able to get them a darker pink, but they would know better.

Have you seen the shoes with the dress?  Maybe they wouldn’t show that much under the dress…  I don’t think they look like Barbie attacked your feet (although….what a great line).  Sorry, I’ve never dyed shoes before though, so I have no idea, but I believe only white shoes can be dyed to match?  Maybe you could wear these shoes as your rehearsal shoes, and just get another pair for the wedding?

I love them!!! I would definitely not recommend trying to dye them yourself but I’d take them somewhere that could do it professionally and find out their opinion. Good luck!

Depending on the fabric you may be able to *tint* them, but it’s hard to add a new color onto a pre-existing color. Many dyeing tutorials urge you to try and use a color-removing agent first (there are companies that provide these). 

I’ve personally never dyed satin. You may be able to tint it darker if you apply a purple wash to it, but I doubt you could overcome the original color entirely.
