Anyone knows where to get blue leather shoes like these?




These are from diesel and they are distressed which I don't fancy but I do like the colorway. Any other brands making shoes like these?

Do a search on the Men's Clothing board. Some guy with a lot of time & money on his hands re-dyed a pair of (originally brown or black) dress shoes to a medium blue sort of color.

Very cool.

Yeah, I've done this as well. I did it with a pair of eccos (midnight blue dye), and then tried to antique them with multiple applications of midnight blue and black cream. I wouldn't wear them during the daytime, but I might at night. They're still eccos and the shape is ugly.

As for money - the dye and cream packages is pretty cheap, and available on ebay. Time - probably just a couple of hours. You probably want to get a better stripper for stripping the original finish, though.
