Since I don’t live in the U.S. I ordered my dress online, it was listed as “white”. So I went ahead and bought my shoes online as well, Calvin Klein Sandie heels but I bought the wrong colour (ivory). I was hopeful that when my dress got here it wouldnt be so white, but it was SOOOOO white it made my shoes look even darker.
I was so devasted, my budget ain’t that big. I couldn’t afford to spend another $100 dol on new shoes, I ran into some videos on youtube explaning how to DIY dye satin shoes. But since I’ve never been good at DYI anything (lol) I didn’t wanna take that risk.
Then I realized, I had no other option. And I ordered the satin shoe dye. I got here today and here are the results.
I can not believe I was able to do this MYSELF!!! Best part is, I didnt do any mess!!! Im letting them dry, at least 24 hours per instructions.
And since purple is my favorite color, this is just amazing for me!!!

You did a great job, congrats!! And I love the idea of a pop of color under your gown, so I think the ivory/white issue was a blessing in disguise 🙂

Wow! They look amazing! What dye did you use? I would love to do the same with my shoes after wedding.

CONGRATULATIONS… cause they turned out great.
Just let me warn you, as I was once upon a time a Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding with dyed satin shoes… if they get wet the dye will run.
So raindrops… will make spots. Wet grass etc will make funny lines along the sides / bottoms.
And if your feet sweat, or get wet, your feet / stockings will become dyed purple as well.
Other than that… the colour rocks… and the shoes look amazing.
Just pick your days wisely to wear them, and they’ll be cool shoes forever.
Hope this helps,

Wow, they look really professional. Gorgeous colour. Good tip above re: not getting them wet though, you wouldn’t want to run the risk of transferring that colour onto your dress.

You did a great job! I would’ve totally botched it and ended up with different shades everywhere, lol.
