Have you ever seen a tie dye horseshoe? Many of our creative customers enjoy customizing their EasyShoes. Kristen is the first EasyCare customer to tie dye EasyShoes and we love how it turned out!
Interested in tie dyeing your own EasyShoes? Follow Kristen’s steps to create your own unique shoes.
What You Will Need:
2 bowls, a spatula, shaving cream, Rit DyeMore Synthetic Dye, plastic wrap, scissors, tape, spoon, and EasyShoes.
How to Apply:
Step 1: Fill a bowl with shaving cream.
Step 2: Add small amount of cold water (roughly 1/6 cup).
Step 3: Mix shaving cream and water until smooth. You are trying to get the consistency of meringue.
Step 4: Lay one sheet of plastic wrap down horizontally.
Step 5: Lay a second layer down over top vertically.
Step 6: Spread your shaving cream in the center square of the plastic wrap. Try to make the surface as smooth as possible for your dye. Keep some distance at the corner so the shaving cream stays inside the plastic.
Step 7: Shake the bottles of dye before use. Use the spoon to apply small areas of dye to your shaving cream.
Step 8: Repeat with all colors. Do not overlap colors too much and try to leave some white space.
Step 9: Use the end of your spoon to create a swirl pattern in your colors.
Step 10: Prepare piece of tape to wrap EasyShoe. Gently set your EasyShoe (tread side down) in center of shaving cream. Do not press it down.
Step 11: Fold up each corner of the plastic wrap. Bring edges together at the top. Excess shaving cream will fold over top of the shoe.
Step 12: Do your best to seal air inside plastic and wrap the top tight with tape.
Step 13: Gently squish shaving cream around shoe so all parts get covered.
Step 14: Place EasyShoe in bowl to sit for at least 12 hours.
Step 15: After 12+ hours, cut the plastic wrap and remove EasyShoe.
Step 16: Rinse EasyShoe to remove all shaving cream. Enjoy and apply the shoe to your horse!

I like this web blog so much, saved to bookmarks. “To hold a pen is to be at war.” by Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire.
Hi, This is Carol Williams, with Heart And Soul Whole Horse Hoof Care, in Las Vegas Nevada.
Q1. Is the sizing on the Octo’s the same as it is on the VersaGrip Glue on?
Q2. Can I use the versa grip Wedge with the Octo’s?
Q3. Can I use the equilox stubie glue instead of the CA Glue?
Q4. And are the CA glues compatible with the Equilox glues or Glu U glues?
Thank you so much for your time!
Hi Carol! Yes, the Versa Grip Octo is sized the same as the Versa Grip Glue. All Versa Grip shoes are sized the same. The Versa Grip Wedge can be used on all Versa Grip horseshoes, including the Octo. We recommend using Super Glue to apply the Octo. We have not tested Equilox and cannot guarantee its effectiveness. We recommend following the application instructions found here: https://blog.easycareinc.com/the-new-easyshoe-versa-grip-octo-is-available-now/
