If you buy from Dyeables you can get them to do the dye job for you, for a reasonable fee.  If you don’t buy from them, they can still dye them for you, but it’ll cost a bit more.

The BIG THING to know about dyed shoes is, although they look AMAZING they are not waterproof… any water that gets onto them will spot them.

Read up on the Dyeable’s website, about precautions you can take to alleviate / prevent this somewhat.

Hope this helps,

I have those first ones, purchased through my bridal salon, who dyed them for free. The color was disappointing–I was hoping that it would be a darker grey, and it ended up basically being silver. I tried them on with my dress when it finally came in and I was really sad because they didn’t look good at all. I ended up taking them home and DIYing them (that jewel thing is just held in by two pliable prongs, so it was easy to take out) with glitter paint. (I also only paid $25 for them.)

As far as sizing goes, I find they’re pretty true to size. I’m typically a 7.5, and got them in a 7.5 and they fit fine. If you have them dyed, they cannot get wet because they dye will run.

@vorpalette:  Hi I am looking into the Anette. BUt I hear a lot of reviews that they are not that comfy.  Do you find them comfy?  I guess I can always order them and try them on and if I don’t like them return them.  Thank you.

@jessyrez:  They’re fine as far as I can tell. I haven’t worn them for more than a few minutes at a time, but they seem comfortable? I wear gel insoles with my shoes normally, but I probably won’t with these.

@vorpalette:  do they bend well?  I am seeing a lot of amazon reviews that say they are very stiff.

@jessyrez:  I guess? I’ve danced around in them a bit, but because I painted them, I’m too worried to break them in too much. If you’re just going to dye them, breaking them in will be much easier.

I’ve worn dyeable shoes before-  you can have them sprayed with a water protecting spray (like you may use on uggs…) that will protect the shoes from water damage.  They don’t make it water PROOF, but they certainly make them resistent.  I have used this website to have shoes dyed…  www.dyemyshoes.com   they had good service so I was pleased with them. Just make sure you give whoever you have dye the shoes a sample of the color you want…don’t just say ‘blue’ give them a piece of material so they can match it.  good luck!
