The only thing that I can suggest would be for you to take them to a professional shoe repair and see what they tell you

Definitely go with the recommendation above to work with a professional. Dyeing is a tricky business and has plenty of variation even when done by the professionals and is quite risky when dealing with a finished product (i.e. The fabric dyeing should happen before the shoe is assembled). Is anyone going to see the shoes under your dress? I don’t think I’d touch a pair of Manolos personally, especially if the slight mismatch wasn’t even going to be visible.

winewithwedding :  Not sure about Manolos, but satin doesn’t always mean silk. Satin refers to the type of weave, not the fiber. It could be silk satin or it could be polyester satin…polyester is more tricky to dye than silk. The fact that you have mixed materials (satin, lace – probably nylon or polyamide, and mesh) is going to make it way harder to achieve a consistent dye job
