I’ve found my ideal shoes for the wedding, they are exactly the sort of thing I had in mind and are cheaper than I’ve budgeted for. The are ivory so I could just wear them as they are but I really have my heart set on having coloured shoes.
Can I dye them? I want to have them a bright colour, maybe pink or dark purple (which is my theme colour) for my wedding in November, although I worry that they will end up barbie pink which I want to avoid!
Has anyone done this? Will the colour run on my dress? Any advice hive?

I dont reallly think they can be dyed because of the details. What material are they?

If you dye these, use shellac or polyurethane after dyeing. They won’t “run” or “bleed”…
I you choose purple, you’ll avoid the “barbie pink” 🙂
