    Hey experienced boot bros, I've got a question about dyeing boots.

    Bought these Ann's from LN-CC with the intent to dye them black

    [​IMG]

    However, I notice now that the stitching appears to be reddish-orangeish

    [​IMG]

    I remember reading some stuff in the past about dyeing boots but the thread remaining un-dyed.. is this going to be problematic? Will the boots be black but the stitching remain the same color?

    depends on what the stitching is made of. Poly/nylon and other synthetics don't take dye well.

    /\ If the thread is a polymer/nylon it won't change color. Cotton threads will pick up the dye.

    Any way to find out what the thread is made of? Would a cobbler be able to tell?

    EDIT: upon a bit of investigation it appears that on Ann's dip dye boots, the thread takes the dye (at least somewhat) -- a good sign?

    EDIT 2: Also, should I be able to trust any decent cobbler to dye the Ann's? Or do I need to find an especially good one or something

    Feeling the threads is enough to tell if they are synthetic or not. A good cobbler will be able to tell right away.

    Go to someone who has a good reputation. I have seen botched dye jobs, where the original color starts to show through cracks in the dye....

    Also, any dye on the buckle/zip will eventually scrape off.

    Good luck!

    if you haven't visited yet, sartorialoft has some amazing footwear right now. some phenomenal layer-0 shell cordovan (from guidi, I guess guidi made some cordovan but has never used it in its own production, more of a production for their private work).

    Worth checking out...

    it's cool. very different from the previous store. the space is designed like a gallery with zero indications that it's a store. It's a reconceptualization of the retail experience.
