£240
Back to Images

From marigold to ultraviolet, our artisans have developed a unique range of 20 colours for you to give your shoes a new lease of life. Let us know the name of the colour you’d like to dye your shoe. We dye all exterior satin, carefully applying around beaded or detailed areas.

 

This service covers satin shoes of any colour from any brand or designer. If you have a specific colour in mind, see our bespoke dyeing satin shoes service. 

Dependencies and Risks

Material composition? Results will vary depending on the composition of your shoes, for example, whether they are silk or polyester.

 

What colour? We can dye your shoes darker than the colour they originally are. However, the colour and condition of your shoes will dictate the colour they can be dyed. For example, originally white in excellent condition will give you lots of options, but pink with heavy staining will limit your palette.

 

Colour variation? Please be aware that the reference colours may vary from screen to screen. The final colour may be darker than the reference, as this is dependent on of layers needed which is dictated by the condition of the shoe.

 

Concealing stains? Dye is transparent, so to conceal stains we have to dye your shoes the colour of the darkest stain – in most cases, this will be black. 

 

Dirty shoes? If your shoes are dirty, you will be charged a £55 special clean fee to clean them before they can be dyed.

 

Frayed areas? Satin frays when friction and pressure is applied. Frayed fibres areas absorb dye at a different rate, causing a difference in colour saturation.

The Process

We prepare for dyeing by using acid-free tape to mask areas we don’t want dye to go, like the sole and insole. It’s important to remove the surface dirt before beginning dyeing, even on brand new shoes. We use specialist solutions to clean your shoes, specially engineered to help them to absorb dye. Then, we apply the hand-mixed dye in light layers to gradually build up colour. To finish, we apply a protective solution that fixes the dye to the shoe.
