Warning: Make sure to clean and prep your suede before using our dye. This consists of a wipe down with a light alcohol. Some people may experience a shade such as brown or purple on their shoes. This happens when the dye is taking on the color below the shoe. MAKE SURE TO TEST AN AREA BEFORE USE. We have tested many types of suede's and they all turn out black as black so we have confirmed it is what it is put on.
