Many people fear that they will destroy their existing shoes if they are not dyed properly. But Highsnobiety has brought a very detailed instructional video on how to dye a standard shoe, which is very simple to adjust. The video tutorial will need 9 items to complete, ngeh may seem like a lot but in fact is extremely simple.
- Old clothes to avoid dyes
- Rubber gloves
- Liquid soap
- Color retention pills
- 1 pair of sneakers
Some of the tips for more effective dyeing are getting your sneakers completely wet so that the color permeates even more. Use hot water throughout the process to allow the dye to dissolve evenly. And lastly, use liquid detergent and low concentration of detergent for cleaning. Finally, you can shove newspaper into your shoes to make sure the paper absorbs any residual dye.
