Looking for a reason to have an additional skip in your step? Maybe this DIY will do the trick. Part 3 of our Four Ways to Embellish SUMMER SHOES Feature will show you how to create the perfect dip dye ombre sneakers using our Rit Dye Powder packages.
H&M Plain White Sneakers
Remove the shoelaces from your shoes.
Apply vaseline to the bottom part of your shoe. This will prevent the dye from spreading to this area.
Dip your shoes in cold water.
Pour salt and detergent into your RIT dye.
Since we wanted our shoes to have an ombre appearance we dipped the front in first, holding the shoes under the dye for several seconds.
We continuously checked the color making sure we weren’t making the shoes too bright.
As we got to the perfect color, we took our shoes out of the dye and began smudging the dye from the more saturated area to the least saturated area.
In order to complete our ombre shoe transformation, we soaked the shoes under running water. Once the stream of water was clear, we knew the shoes would not run.
Leave your shoes out to dry overnight.
