I accidentally dyed my last pair of mythos red. Though I imagine blood red would be a little too dark for what youre trying to do...

What kind of paint did you use? How do you accidentally dye shoes?

Automotive paint store. Bring your shoes, they'll get the right paint and load it in a spray can. Works best if the uppers are cheap vinyl, so buy your shoes at Rite-aid. Try not to overdo the inhaling off your shoes. You'll also be a tad flammable, so keep the matches well away.

Best, OLH

I just used blood. Bumped my ankle on a rock and it bled over my shoes.

I'd be surprised if this ended well. Just leave them, the leather will fade fast as a mofo as soon as one molecule of chalk touches em anyway

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
