Also know, can I paint white rubber soles?

For example, if your soles are made of rubber, you'd want a primer designed specifically for rubber materials. If desired, you can also just use a white acrylic paint as a primer option. If you're not sure of the material of the sole, check the bottom or inside of the shoe to look for a label.

Likewise, can you dye white rubber soles black? Allow the rubber sole to soak for at least one hour. For dark or bright colors, allow it to soak for two hours.
