Step 1. Preparation

  • Clean the shoes thoroughly with a good leather cleaner.

  • After cleaning take the small abrasive pad, soak it in water and rub down the entire surface of the leather. (Note: some of the color may be removed in this process, this is normal) pay particular attention to any creased or cracked areas.

  • On older shoes, there may be some rough or scuffed areas, simply sand these down with 1200 grit wet and dry sandpaper until smooth.

  • Wipe down the leather with a damp cloth once this is done and leave to dry.

Step 2. Coloring

  • Shake the bottle of Shoe Colorant well.

  • Apply a small amount of colorant onto the sponge and rub directly onto the surface of the item using a circular motion.

  • Leave this to dry thoroughly (a hairdryer can be used to speed up this process), when this is dry, apply a second coat in the same way.

  • Apply a third coat by dabbing the color onto the item with the sponge, this will ensure the color is more uniform. If you are changing the color rather than restoring, additional coats may be required to achieve the desired color.

  • The leather can be sanded between coats for a smooth finish, though it is important to ensure each coat has completely dried before sanding.


Step 1. Preparation

  • Use the abrasive pad to gently rub over the entire surface of the suede/nubuck and clean the shoes thoroughly with a good suede cleaner, then rub down with a damp cloth to remove any residue. Allow the item to dry,

  • Gently rub the entire surface over again with the abrasive pad to raise the nap and wipe the surface with a clean, dry cloth to remove any dust.

Step 2. Coloring

  • Dilute the Shoe Colorant, 1 part colorant to 1.5 parts water (e.g 50ml color to 75ml water) and mix thoroughly.

  • Apply the diluted color to the sponge and use this to rub it into the suede in a circular motion, covering the fibres from all directions.

  • Allow to dry, then brush the fibres with the abrasive pad to raise the nap. If required, apply a second coat in the same manner to create a more even finish and allow time to dry,

  • During the coloring process the nap of the sude/nubuck may become flattened. You can raise the nap again by brushing with the abrasive pad as before.


Step 1. Preparation

  • Shoe colorant is suitable for use on any absorbent fabric, test your fabric with water before use to verify its absorbency.

  • Throughly clean the item with a specialist fabric cleaner

  • Rub the fabric down with a damp cloth to remove any residue and leave to partially dry.

Step 2. Coloring

  • Dilute the Shoe Colorant, 1 part colorant to 1.5 parts water (e.g 50ml color to 75ml water) and mix thoroughly.

  • Apply the diluted color to the sponge and rub it into the fabric, covering the entire area.

  • Once the entire area is covered, leave it to dry.

  • Additional coats can be applied if required to give depth of color or a more even finish.

Flourescent Colors

Our florescent colors are great for those who want to stand out from the crowd.

Note: To achieve a bright florescent color the leather must be white. If it isn’t, you must first start by spraying over the original color with white. Spraying on top of white gives a brilliantly bright florescent color, applying fluorescents over any other base color will result in a duller and darker look.

Metallic Colors

The metallic range adds an aspect of luxury to any item of footwear


Note: We supply three metallic colors: Copper, Silver and Gold. Each must be sprayed lightly on top of a base color to achieve a suitable metallic effect. For example, if you spray gold on top of black you get a ‘green gold’ but if you spray it on top of a light brown you get a more typical gold gold’. So based on this you can actually achieve hundreds of shades of metallic colors using just these three.
