Has anyone here ever re-dyeing their shoes to a much darker colour
You will need De-Glazer, Feibings Dye, a couple of daubers and some newspaper. Take out the laces, stuff shoes with newspaper tightly. With a rag, deglaze per instructions on can. Wearing rubber gloves, start applying dye with dauber at toe (I start above the welt), working quickly across the shoe from left to right. Let dry overnight, rub out the first coat and re-apply. After a few hours, start applying polish - 2 or 3 coats. If you are looking for an antiqued effect, you will need to rub off the dye almost immediatly, and work with rags instead of daubers. This takes some practice to get right. If you have some old shoes to work on first, that would be best. If not, pick something up cheap at a thrift store before dying your shoes.
