    I recently acquired a pair of these red wing chukkas

    I love the stye of boot, but am finding the light blue color unappealing and annoying to match. I'd like to dye them to a medium to dark brown color, if that's possible. If this is doable, what kind of dye/equipment would I need? Would this be possible considering their light blue color?

    You'll need a disposable plastic tub, newspapers to soak up any splash, some brushes, gloves and clothes that you don't mind messing up/
