Is there any way to dye the orange sole black or will it rub off? appreciate it
post #4522 of 4762
Take it to any cobbler, they can paint the sole black. In fact, whenever i get my shoes/boots rubber heel replaced, they do it free for me ( i have to tell them not to now tho cuz i like my soles looking beat up )
Take note, that it will wear off eventually and u will have to re dye them again.

thanks man

no prob, upon closer inspection, it looks like the sole has been surface dyed orange, that is, it is not orange deep within. perhaps u can ask your cobbler more info about stripping away that initial first coat of color, either by sanding it down a touch ( prolly most dangerous method as it has to be even and very slight sanding, or else it will look very distressed ) or apply a paint thinner that would strip away the initial color, and then repainting it black so it would wear out better ( showing natural leather color rather than orange underneath.
Its your call if u want to do this, as you will most definitely be putting some money into them if u choose to buy.

The orange soles are what make those interesting. I don't see why you'd go to the trouble of messing around with trying to change the sole color.
You'd probably be better off trying to find a pair of black Tony boots.

yeah on the picture, but is hard to pull off a chelsea with an orange sole specially when you're over 30, i tried 'em on, the sole look like orange rubber from a distance due to the fluorescent orange i looked like a fireman smile.gif . tony boots not so much, they just look funny to me, and the split on the middle just killed it for me
