About Dyeable Shoes
Dyeable shoes are made from white satin or silk that has been coated with a special solution designed to allow the fabric to accept dye. This coating is invisible to you and does not affect the look or feel of the fabric so the shoes may be worn as-is in white if you prefer. The shoes may have rhinestones, crystals and other details that will not be affected by the coloring process.
Where Can I Dye My Shoes?
We recommend and trust the professional colorists at DyeMyShoes.com.
After you receive your shoes from Bellissima Bridal Shoes, simply visit the DyeMyShoes.com website. You will download their order form, mail the shoes to DyeMyShoes.com, and they will be returned to you ready to wear. It's fast, affordable and you get your favorite shoe in your favorite hue! Please note that Bellissima holds no responsibility once a product is dyed.
Many of our dyeable shoes arrive with a fabric swatch so that you can approve the color before the shoes are dyed. If you don't receive a swatch don't worry, dye specialists are used to providing them for pre-approvals.
Dyed shoes can change hue under indoor or bright outdoor light. Be sure to ask the dye specialist about this, and test the color under the light you'll be exposed to on the big day.
Because of differences in fabric there's a very good chance that there will be some variation between the dress color and the color of the dyed fabric. These subtle variations in tones and textures should be embraced - much like how a real pearl will never match a white gown exactly - but it still looks absolutely beautiful.
If you are dyeing several pairs of bridesmaid shoes or handbags it's best to dye them all at the same time and place. You're going to be happy with the uniform color you'll get this way.
Staining and Running
There's a chance you and your bridesmaids will get caught in a little rain on your wedding day so you should have your shoes treated with water repellent when you have them dyed. This won't completely prevent staining but it will help control it.
All of our shoes can be dyed from a lighter shade to a darker one at least once and often two times. Designer brands such as Badgley Mischka, Something Bleu, Stuart Weitzman, or Filippa Scott can be dyed to a darker shade several times.
