sometimes we are so attached to a shoe that the simple fact of thinking about retiring it becomes a real nightmare. There are designs of sports shoes, that no matter how many years go by, the rage for them does not stop and the Air Force 1 from Nike are an example. If you are one of those who has a very worn design in the bottom of the closet but refuses to throw it away, here is a method to dye them and give them a second life.
How to transform your old Air Force 1 into a new shoe
In order to give our Air Force 1 (or any white shoe) a second chance, we will need a large basin, a lot of hot water and the dye of the color we choose. It is as easy as mixing the hot water with the dye and submerging the shoes in the basin for about 24 hours. It is important that the shoes are completely submerged so that the result is uniform.
However, if you feel that you want to go further and make a (big) difference, the internet shows us how to turn your white design into a two-tone model. For this reason we will follow the same process but first we will protect the parts that we want to continue being white with electrical tape.
How to dye your Nike Air Force 1 with coffee
Although dyeing white sneakers in a groundbreaking color like blue, pink or lilac is cool, there is a technique that has broken the internet that shows us how to dye sneakers with coffee. The result? A very cool toasted beige tone that will show the most elegant side of this classic shoe. We will only need hot water, a basin and ground coffee.
In order for them to take on a toasted beige color, it is advisable to leave the shoes submerged in the mixture for approximately two hours.
