I think it was mentioned that the finished has to be sanded so the adhesive would work (won't stick as well on lacquered soles). I also vote to just have the sole guard remain. If you want to remove it, the result might be too much work. Also, I'm sure you can condition/lather/dye the soles I just don't know how that will affect their durability. Waxing the soles might lead to traction issues though. Good luck.
