I think payless does it, but not sure about how to do it if you find them elsewhere…

Here are some teal shoes already, all on http://www.endless.com?

just take them to any local shoe repair most of them dye shoes for super cheap i remember in high school i took all my shoes there for prom and formals. its like 10 bucks just at the cheap little places where they make keys. just take something in with the color you want and they can match it

It’s also my understanding that any shoe repair place will do it, as the PP said. You can always call and ask if they do shoe dyeing before you go in. One more thing to keep in mind if you’re having shoed dyed, I don’t know from personal experience but I’ve heard if your shoes get even the tiniest bit wet, the color will run. That’s what kept me from going this route (Instead I’m paying $130 to have my dream shoes custom made, gah!)

Make sure you get recommendations!


Some places will just have you pick a color out of a book (they get pre-mixed colors) and that’s that.  If you’re lucky, you can find someone who actually mixes the dye themselves and can match any swatch you give them.


I found a guy in Boston who is a master dyer and he’s the only person I use.  Turns out, plenty of people send their shoes to him!  He can match anything!
