Cordovan cream or deer bone if you want to get fancy. 

 

Easiest way is probably to brush it, wipe it a little bit with a damp cloth and then buff. 

 

 

Recommendation on a particular cream?

I like Saphir Corodvan Cream (neutral), but some people like VSC on their shell. 

 

Edit: If the scuffs are still noticeable you can go with the AE cordovan cream in brown or colored Saphir Cordovan Cream

What about the AE Cordovan Care Creme?

@Kahuna75 Those look really good. I goofed on the Morgan forever until I finally saw it in person. I regret not picking it up. I think I'm a fan of any of the rough collection line.

smfdoc - I've seen those cronmoks but didn't get them. The material felt like the neumok and with the 65 last they probably fit like that too. They were supposed to be good. For 2nds, the price is ok, for 1sts its better (I think they clearanced them out for 197 but I could be way off). Agree with kahuna though - you have to have a use for blue boots.

7-rocket has em and will probably rip me and say how awesome they are 😉

I made an edit to the post, you must have missed it. AE Cordovan Cream works well to cover up scuffs as well, although i would use very sparingly since it's pretty concentrated.

Any advise of how to do this stricly with polish/creams? Would AE's shoe polish in a tube be a good place to start or is everyone of the opinion that I would be wasting my time?

Thanks.
I've done this exact thing, with limited success. I had some dark brown monks that I decided I'd rather have in burgundy. I used successive applications of saphir burgundy and cognac cream, with a burgundy wax on the cap toe. I was able to impart a slight red/purple hue, but it's very subtle, likely owing to how dark the shoes were to begin with.

AE's polish should be just fine, I just happened to have saphir lying around in the colors I needed.

They're here. Custom Neumok seconds I found on eBay. I'll be walking down to Camden Yards in these on the Orioles' opening day next spring.

 

They're an interesting leather combo, by the way. The orange is pebble calf; the black part looks and feels like Chromexcel. I've never owned shoes on the 5 last. I know they run narrow, but man -- I usually wear 9.5 D or E, and these 10.5's fit me fine. Why does AE make most of their classic designs on this last again? I usually don't have to size up or down more than .5 either. What a weird last. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the hideousness!

Wow, they are both ugly as they are beautiful. I'm sure the Baltimore faithful will enjoy looking at them as you are wearing them.

Not many fans of black shoes on the SF, but here are today's (discontinued) black Bradleys.  Hard to understand why AE has all but discontinued NSTs. :confused:

Esteemed Colleagues,

What would be the best way to attack getting these scratches out of my Brown Shell Strands? Any advice is appreciated.

I have come to use just straight water to get out scratches/creases before boning. I literally put a nitrile glove on my hand and dip my fingers in water and rub the shell with it to hydrate... then brush. If you think about it, the water causes the shell to swell and the brushing sort of evens things out. Ymmv

I usually do this to the whole shoe/boot as to simply hydrate the shell. More water for the scratches/creases, less water for normal areas.

Again I have to say that I learned the most from mdubs website. As anyone here has seen his shell is always in pristene condition.

Are your pix from a phone or a regular camera?  You always get such crisp shots.  Nice Shaker Heights, BTW!

I won't enjoy the other spectators spilling beer on the shoes, however. :p

How warm are they? Do you find that there there many occasions on which the Dalton would be too dressy/insufficiently rugged, but a winter boot or work boot would be insufficiently refined?

They aren't a heavy weight, heavy duty hiker, but they bridge the gap nicely between those which are and more formal dress boots.  One of AE's better winter offerings, I think.

The merlot Graysons just feel like the sort of shoe I will regret not buying for $127 when I had the chance.
