So I just got a new pair of Chucks, which reminded me how much I hated my white ones. So Which researching about dying them, I came across a picture of rainbow ones, and fell in love. I had some dye already, sei tumble dye, in red, yellow, and blue. I used a foam brush to apply it, let it dry, then threw them in the dryer to set the dye. Also, I used masking tape on the rubber just to be safe. I didn't get the shoes wet before I dyed them, but the colors might run better if you did.







Right after I dyed them, you can see the colors were darker at this point


The ugly before


Thanks for looking!

Great shoes! Way better than white, that's for sure. Now you've reminded me I need to buy a new pair...

Nice work! They look great! And if the dye didn't set all the way, you might have some tie-dye socks that match  Wink
