I wouldn’t think it would be harmful. Shops probably use non-toxic dyes for their shoes. If you are concerned about it I would certainly contact the shop and inquire about the chemicals used in their dyes. I don’t think that I would be too concerned myself unless I were sensitive to certain chemicals.

ETA: That stinks about the dye rubbing off like that. That would make me a little upset.

I think that is pretty typical for dyed shoes.

I actually really doubt that the dye is non-toxic, but you’re only really wearing them for a few hours (tangerine shoes aren’t the most easily worn color after the wedding). I doubt it’s going to do anything to you in that short a time frame.

I doubt that its harmful to you personally, but I’ll bet it will do a number on your dress.

From my understanding, that is very common with dyed shoes (why I will never own a pair).

It wont be toxic to you so I wouldnt worry about that to much. Im sorry that they are rubbiing off.. I would wear them around the house etc and try to get it so they dont rub off anymore before you put them on with your wedding dress. I also have dyed shoes (turquois) but I have never had this issue on the outside part is dyed not the inside where my feet are.

Come to think of it, when I was younger we always got our shoes dyed for prom,weddings,etc…what we did was wear them around the house with old white socks on so any overflow dye came off on the socks…plus it helped break them in some. For some reason dyed shoes always seemed to shrink up afterwards.

@ItWasntMe: That’s a great idea!  I’ll grab some old white socks and wear them around the house!  I need to stretch them out a bit anyway.

Also be careful wearing them around wet grass or puddles!  I’ve heard that the dye will run around water, including sweat.

@ItWasntMe:Great idea with the socks! 

 Mine are dyed dark purple.  I was in a friend’s wedding years ago and wore shoes dyed burgundy…my toes were pink for a few days..LOL!  I plan on spraying my shoes with a water repellant to “seal” them.  Also in case they get wet somehow.  As far as dye rubbing onto your dress, you’ll only havethem on for a short period of time and it’s not like your runnning a marathon where the dress would be rubbing constantly on the shoe.  I think it will be fine.
