I've never done it but I know of someone dying their thorogood horsehide boots brown from black.
I'll try to pull up more info.

Of course you can bleach Vans but to me it will be pretty hard to dye mesh reason being it could damage the sole and maybe other things around it. But it can happen and look amazing..

I dyed the mesh on some Air Max 95's. I did them yellow and they came out pretty good. I used Rite. i don't see why you couldn't use black. I had the shoes upside down to prevent the dye from running down to a lower are of the shoe I was trying to keep the dye from.
