I would try a little piss with the vinegar.

In the case of this thread, "shoe damage" is referring to financial damage to the bank account, not damage to the physical shoe.

Light colored shoes will always get water stain marks once rained upon, however, the leather should go back to normal color once it's dry, and this happens to all of my shoes.
Fascinating! How long does it take to dry? It was normal tap water (but probably was reasonably hard).

Thank you uncle.

But this sparked a question:

With my lower grade shoes: like Loakes and Allen Edmonds, and they are all full grain finish, not correct grain bookbinder finish; but I can easily get mirror shine finish on them with just one layer of polish and buffing, I don't bother with renovateur on them yet.

However, with my Tricker's and Alfred Sargents, which cost nearly double, and I put a lot of more care into them, like wipe, reno, polish and buffing, but I just can't get to mirror shine.... after 3 layers polish, quite depressing for me after my shoe care sessions. shog[1].gif

Anyone else experienced this? And can someone shed light on this?

You definitely have to build up the wax because of the pores (these are pretty much sanded even on CG or filled with a coat with other BB leather). I willl take some time but you'll eventually get there. i actually cheat and use a cottonball to get the shine on some of the shoes' toebox.
