Can you dye support boots?

I'm pretty sure you can, I just want to know if anyone has and if they turned out like you wanted them too? I can't find the color boot I want and I'm only wanting to use Professional's Choice Elite. I know they have the different dyes at Walmart and craft stores that I could use. I just don't want to spend the money on a full set of white boots and have them turn out a funky color and have wasted my money..I'm wanting a burnt orange color, all I can find are neon orange and red..Not what I'm wanting.

Lark's colors and tack are going off of this Classic Equine line that I fell in love with..and ofcouse there is no boot I like..The flowers are more of a burnt orange/pink in person..


The color of her dress is PERFECT for what I'm looking to achieve..is possible.

I've dyed loads of stuff and it rarely comes out the colour I see on the box. At least starting out with white you have a better chance of success but I think that the velcro strappings might end up a different shade to the boot - different materials = different absorbency
I'd be interested to see the results if you do try it.

Hmm...I'll probably try, if all else fails I can just dye them a darker color.. Maybe if the orange doesn't take to the velcro I can just dye them black? She's going to have a black pad and all anyway..It's definitely going to be a project to think about.. I have enough sets of boots that I might try to dye a boot first and see how that turns out..

My mom tried to dye white elites a kelly green color, the straps came out light blue and the reast were a blue green color. She used the dye you put in the washer.

Lol Take your legacy boots back in the hole with you!

I think I'm going to try the dye that you mix with water and let the boots soak for a while then wash..
