So I have Chuck Taylor's All Star Leather and I would like to make them look like pic related.
Where can I buy some sort of pink paint that wont come off of leather?
would acrylic paint work well in this case?
>Where can I buy some sort of pink paint that wont come off of leather?
Leather uses dyes to achieve different colouring. You would need a leather dye; however, it still wont work. Leathers are treated to prevent their colours from fading and being stained so a dye application wont sit.

Not even a little. That shit will crack and peel off and then they'll look like garbage
So leather dye it is.
I dont expect them to be perfect
nobody asked for your corny ass opinion
No. Leather dye wont work either. It'll look awful because it wont actually dye the leather. It'll rub off at any touch and whenever it gets wet. It'll look fucking terrible after 1 wear
So would it work better on regular canvas converse's?
infinitely more. Canvas converse can be dyed or painted, so dyeing them pink will work. Plus if you begin hating it you can dye them black; whereas, if you dye leather and it doesn't work than you have ugly shoes and no fix
ah ok thanks for the help. I just copped the All Star Leathers because I asked Converse Support to help me to identify the exact model of the shoe here >>10636352 and they said they were the leather all stars.
That being said do you think those are normal canvas converses? because they sure as hell don't look it (I'm not talking about the color)
Also thanks for the info man youve been very helpful I appreciate it.

No they're missing the logo patch. Seems like some weird knock off. Honestly the leather all stars aren't that bad, especially the chuck II's cause the sole is so much more comfortable

Well you asked a legitimate question, 90% of this board can't handle that
