My daughter loves, love the galaxy look for shoes. This is her second pair we've dyed together but this time we used the ice dyeing technique and she is hooked- so easy and so fun!

Step By Step
We bought these shoes on sale at Target for under $15. We removed the laces before dyeing (you don't need to though). I rinsed the shoes really well in hot water to remove any factory finishes that might have been left on the shoes.
Add ice to cover the entire shoes. If you don't want to risk the rubber sides of the shoes picking up some of the dye, you can coat the rubber with vaseline or completely with Elmer's Blue gel glue which you let completely dry (you can wash the glue off in warm water after the whole dye process is complete).
