Shoe dyeing is one of our favorite transformations. That’s because you can create something incredibly custom and unique. Whether it’s a pair of shoes you want (and don’t want) in a certain color, or you have shoes you’re just sick of, use Rit to get them the color of your choice to colour.
This means that you can easily take off and revarnish your shoes for a new season. We recommend TRG Easy Dye, it is a high quality paint that offers a wide range of colors and all intermixable. It is important to also use a stripper (for leather) or a conditioner (for synthetic) to prepare the shoes.
Dyed shoes can be cared for like any other leather product with shoe wax and shine cream. Leather dyes should only be applied to light-colored leather. Try our range of Angelus Acrylic Leather Dyes to give full coverage to any color of leather.

Spray paint specially formulated for leather shoes is an easy and inexpensive way to change the color of leather and synthetic shoes.
Of all the options, acrylic paint is the most versatile for painting shoes. It sticks well to leather, canvas, and even vinyl shoes. Acrylic paint is highly recommended for painting leather shoes. In fact, some shoe manufacturers use acrylic paint to create designs on their leather goods.
First, use the brush to apply the color to hard-to-reach areas, such as the back of the neck. B. the joint between sole and leather, seams and scratches. Next, apply some paint to the sponge with the brush. Rub the sponge gently in a circular motion on the surface of the shoe to be dyed. Apply more dye to the sponge if needed.
Dye, also known as aniline dye, is the concentrated form while mordant is the ready-to-use version of the dye. When it comes to restoring upholstery leather, stains are the most commonly used, since dyes are too strongly colored for restoration in most cases.
Resolene: You can apply leather resolene or acrylic paint in thin layers as a leather finish.
Most shoe materials can be dyed with an all-purpose dye. You can purchase all-purpose paint at a craft store or online retailer. Test a small patch of your running shoes beforehand. Make sure your shoes are suitable for the dyeing process by testing a small stain before dyeing the entire shoe.
