I am, I decided to shoot them with 100% bleach... Interestingly enough, it didn't seem to hurt the t-shirt screen printing any, and after about 20 more minutes in the sun, they were ready for one final spritz session, before one final dry session in the sun, before being ready to print! I had originally intended to leave the bleached out look behind the angel image when I printed it, hoping to achieve some "vintage" look. However, the more I thought about it, the more I didn't like it. Instead, I filled the entire background of the image with dark blue, and hit the print button. I wasn't expecting it to work as well as it did! With Fernando's shoe platen, I was able to print 2 custom t-shirts at a time. In order to get the best results, I double printed everything. By the second pass, the blue in the printed image almost matched the blue in the shoe dye! If you look closely towards the toe of each shoe, you can see how the REAL shoe color compares to the printed background (the real shoe color is the part which almost looks likes it has a shine to it):

There are a few things I would do differently the next time around. For instance, I bleached part of the BACK of the t-shirt printing, thinking I was going to leave a large bleached area around the angel design. The printed area does not wrap around the back of the shoe, so there is a vertical bleach stripe on the back of each shoe. haha - I think it looks "t-shirt printers/t shirt printer"...
