    Given that you paid approximately 25USD for them, I wouldn't expect too much. I don't mean any offense, but that price doesn't buy much quality or durability. They worked for you for that night, and a marker could make them appear black again, but I bet the same thing happens again.

    Agree. They will likely just continue to deteriorate.

    I'm honestly thinking this might be a troll. Those shoes are horrible. Please, don't try to repair them. Anything you do won't make them look good, but will make you look like the cheap asshole that wore beaten up, marker-covered, plastic duck-billed shoes (No offense). Don't be that guy.

    All shoe repair stores have a black spray that is normally used on ladies heels. But it can be used to cover up your pvc shoes, it's quite shiny too

    Then again, if he just set them ablaze, as he should, they'd probably char to a nice black color...

    Looking good, Nordin.

    I read this in a cobbler's repair book some time ago.

    "God bless all shoes that never made it to repair and went straight to heaven"


    Doubt these would be let into heaven though : )

    I bought these Tricker's recently from The Shoe Healer and they came with a little discoloration on the sole. Any ideas IF that can be fixed? I'm assuming my cobbler would have to do it?

    There's no need to worry. Color will even out with wear very soon.
