I just got my shoes back from David’s Bridal for my friend’s wedding. They’re dyed a pool blue (tiffany blue).
My concern is that I will be outside for the ceremony (rain, dew, etc.) and dancing on a hot summer day. I really would rather not have my feet be tiffany blue for a few weeks afterwards. I know I can buy spray protector, but I really dont’ think that will help. I have heard from other girls that have gotten their shoes dyed at DB that they had colored feet after, even though they sprayed.
Do you think I can throw my shoes in the washing machine w/o detergent to soak out the “extra” dye?
Any ladies out there have tips or tricks?

@posh_princess: No tips I’m afraid, but our wedding colours are tiffany blue and red and I toyed with the idea of dyeing my shoes tiffany blue. Bet they look great.

I have no tips, unfortunately, but I do know someone personally who had orange feet after her wedding, just from her feet sweating a bit in her dyed shoes. 🙁 I seriously considered going the dyed shoe route and ending up deciding against it for this reason. Good luck, I hope you figure out something that works!

You’ll just have to deal with it. I painted my shoes for my cousin’s wedding with outdoor satin finish latex paint color-matched from my dress and it was waterproof, but it depends on the style of shoes.

You’re in MA? Are you in the Boston area?
In the future, go see Ron at Shoes to Dye For in Natick and skip the cheapy job at David’s Bridal, which will leave you with blue feet. Ron’s the best shoe dyer ever. If I needed my shoes dyed, I’d ship them to him now that I live in Virginia…he’s that good.

Just sitting here reading and thinking… I wonder if there is something you can put on your feet to keep the dye from coloring your feet. Maybe do that AND spray the shoes.
