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

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
