Dying PU Leather

Hello!
I just got a pair of soft PU leather boots for a cosplay, but unfortunately need them to be black. I've seen people use spray paint before, but it cracks and looks really bad.
Any method out there to perhaps dye or stain the fabric black?

You know, someone else suggested that to me, though I was a bit skeptical. However, now that more than one has recommended, I think I'll try it =)
Thanks!

I've had good results with Angelus leather paints.
