Those are cute... where did you get them?

I would go with fabric paint. You can get the stuff in the bottles with the fine tips (a lot of people use to decorate t-shirts) & use the tips or squirt a little out & use with stapms, sponges, brushes, fingers what ever...

What were you looking to put on them?  design wise?  I'd be tempted to sew sequins & beaeds on them, maybe some small iron on patches.

Last week when I was in Joanns I saw a product that you add to acrylic paint to turn it into fabric paint. I don't remember the name of it but it was with other acrylics. You could also just go with regular fabric paint. I have not painted cloth with acrylics so I don't know if it would crack or peel.
Good luck!!

you're supposed to heat set it not sure how you'd do that with shoes.

I'm not too sure what heat setting means, but it sounds self-explanitory. Would using a blow-dryer work to heat set it?

I got a pair of wedge platforms that are covered in a red silk type fabric and I want to dye them black.  Any bright ideas on what to use?  I worry that fabric paint would crack on the flexible ankle strap and I worry that fabric dye would rub off on all surrounding areas.  I guess I worry too much.  Help!!!!
