A few weeks ago I saw a pair of shoes that I really liked. It was a pair of wedges with a peep-toe, closed back, and a deep burgundy red. I really wanted to get it, and did I mention it was on sale? Unfortunately they didn’t have my size, typical! Then I remembered I had very similar pair of wedges at home, but in grey. So what’s a girl to do? Dye it the colour that she wants! I used Waproo leather dye in Cherry Red which I bought from a shoe repair store for less than $10 and I love how it turned out.
Dying your shoes is very, very easy! If you’d like to do it yourself, all you need is:
- Leather dye – sold at most good shoe repair stores for approx $10
- Leather stripper (optional) – sold at most good repair stores for approx $10
- Rags, cotton wool, cotton buds, etc – to clean up any mess
- Masking tape (optional) – to mask the parts of the shoe that you do not want to dye.
