International Fabric Shoe Dye Kit allows you to mix your own personal, completely unique color, to perfectly match your costume, or create a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes.

The kit includes everything you need to mix a pastel, or light color, from the base color of your choice.

Each kit includes:

  • One 1oz. pot of the base color of your choice
  • One 1oz. pot of Universal Lightener (to lighten your base color)
  • One 2 oz. jar of cleaner, for preparation before dyeing.
  • Three wool daubers for applying the dye
  • One pair of gloves 

Mixing the perfect color take some experimentation. Follow these tips for mixing your dye color:

  • Separate the Universal Lightener or base color into a separate dish for mixing. Be sure to mix enough dye in your final color to cover your pair of shoes.
  • For very light colors, add the base color little-by-little into the Universal Lightener. For colors just a little lighter than the base color, add Universal Lightener into the base color.
  • Test on the fabric swatch included with your shoes as you go.
  • Allow your fabric test swatch to dry completely, to determine the final color.
  • View your color under artificial and natural light before making a decision.
  • Shoes that have been dyed can be dyed again with a darker hue, if you decide the final outcome is too light.
  • If this scares you to death, try our Extended Color Palette dyes, and leave the hard work to us.

*Please Note - American Duchess does not offer a dyeing service or color matching service. Customers are encouraged to test the dye on the same fabric as the shoes are made from, before dyeing their shoes. American Duchess cannot guarantee results on shoes from other vendors, and is not responsible for American Duchess shoes that have been dyed or altered from their original condition.

Color swatches may appear differently on your computer monitor. For best results, and specific color matching, we recommend having your shoes dyed by a service such as a local shoe repair shop, or

For more information and detailed instructions on how to use International Professional Fabric Shoe Dyes, please see our Information page


1. Test the color on a swatch of the same fabric. If your color needs adjustment, mix with International Universal Lightener or International Mixing Black until you achieve the desired result. Do not mix with water.

2. Clean any marks, cement, or stains from both of your shoes. Remove laces, ribbons, etc.

3. Apply the dye. Follow these steps for the best results:

  • Apply dye with a dauber or soft paintbrush.
  • Begin applying the dye at the back seam. Try not to overlap onto the other side of the seam or heel. Begin 1/8" away from the seam, and allow the dye to seep into it. Move smoothly from the backseam to the toe, using quick, even strokes, then around the opposite side of the shoe to the back seam again. Re-dip your brush as needed. Blend as you go, to avoid dark circles from forming.
  • Dye the high heel last, avoiding contact with the rest of the shoe.

4. Allow the shoe to air dry, keeping any objects from touching the fabric. Do not rinse.

5. If you do not plan to dye the shoes again, spray with Scotch Guard or a fabric protector, to protect your shoes from water spotting.
