What to Consider Before Dyeing Your Shoes for a Wedding, Brighton, New York

If you don’t have the right pair of shoes for an upcoming wedding, you may think your only option is to go searching for new ones. However, according to Sofia Shoe Repair Service in Rochester, NY, there’s another choice: You can dye a pair you have. Here, they discuss three things to keep in mind should you decide on this option. 

3 Tips for Dyeing Your Shoes

1. Hire a Professional

Don’t try to dye your shoes yourself, especially if you’ve never done it before. Instead, work with a professional. They will find the exact color you need and dye the shoes accordingly. Try to take a piece of fabric in the color you’re requesting or show them an example so they know the right color to match.                

2. Match the Dye to the Lighting

shoesWhen it comes to dyeing a pair of shoes, you’ll need to keep the lighting of the event space in mind. It will affect the color and how the shoes look when you pose for photos. For instance, gray tones tend to become more purple in the shade, while dark and peach colors may turn pink in the sunlight.

3. Choose the Right Fabric

Satin is known to absorb darker hues, making it the best option if you want to change your shoes to a darker tone. Peau de Soie isn’t as affected by light as much as other fabrics, so if you need your shoes to be a lighter tone, this is the fabric to consider. Finally, make sure the dye won’t affect your comfort.

Shoe dyeing is an inexpensive and simple option that will save you a bundle. If you’ve got a wedding or other event coming up in Rochester and need your shoes dyed the right color, turn to Sofia Shoe Repair Service. Check them out online, or give them a call at (585) 244-5907.
