I believe the short answer to your questions is No not all satin shoes are dyeable.   I have recently been having this same problem.

Not being a shoe dying expert I am not sure what distinguishes dyeable from non-dyeable.  Hopefully, someone much smarter than I on this subject will speak up.

 Good Luck!

I would agree with SpaceC06. I’m not sure how to tell if a satin shoes can be dyed or not. I know this is not answering the question, sorry! I had a plan on dyeing my shoes too. I’ve bought the ink dye and assured myself that I could do it, but in the end I didn’t do it because of the last minutes wedding hassles. So, if you’re planning to DIY, it’s good to have plenty of time to experience. You can "try" on a pair of cheaper shoes. I know that Payless has a couple bridal shoes that are dyeable.

Again, sorry this is probably not helpful. But, if you don’t care about the shoes brand and care more about the color, zappos.com have pretty extensive options as far as shoes that definitely can be dyeable:

I can tell you that Grace brand silk shoes ARE dyable, although they are not advertised as such. I just had my former wedding shoes dyed black and picked them up today and they look great! I used Brooks Shoe Service in Chicago, and I highly recommend them.
