Now I have a bigger dilemma. Last night I was trying to buff my boots after applying Obenauf's and while using my horsehair brush I managed to make a dark abrasion on one of the toes. I applied saphir renu cream and tried remedying it that way but it seems like no matter the amount of brushing/wiping I do the dark spot worsens. The spot doesn't have any of the sheen the like the rest of the leather and feels somewhat raw. Any suggestions?
It feels raw because you somehow managed to wear away the top most layer of the leather. Basically you have a raw patch of leather that is no longer protected by the top grain thus able to absorb all the cream and oils you throw at it, therefore its darker.
Unfortunately there's no way to remedy that. You can try using a thin layer of neutral shoe polish and buff it but its likely to stay like that forever.
