Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1202

post #18016 of 20693

This has occurred to me more than once: Roger, you get up early dude.  A habit of the successful, borne out by your shoe collection.  Respect.

Mimo - cheers - yes, early to bed and early to rise for me.  Must have been a farmer in a former life. :)

The AC are really nice, but the depth and color on the St. C are AMAZING!! One day.

Not sure exactly what kind of croc it is, but I have NEVER seen tiles with that much depth of color before... and I have seen a LOT of exotic reptile shoes.

Thanks

RogerP consider green for your first pair, at the cost of St. C might as well get something special

Indeed.

I picked up a pair of almost new gg sinatras on eBay recently (maybe from fellow member here?). The seller said he had spilled eggs on them.

This is after a good round of renomat and nail polish remover, which helped a bit but it's still very visible. Any advice on what to do to remove further?

I picked them up for a good price, was told about it and can always make them darker over time so I'm not overly concerned but any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

I wish I had an egg-removal solution for you (and hopefully someone will).  Were they mine, I would be cautious about getting too aggressive in further attempts to remove the spots and likely just darken them to make the spots less visible.  They will be just as stunning in dark oxblood as they are now.  Perhaps even moreso.

St. Crisps are definitely on my to get list. Love the green patina. If only they would go on sale...

It depends how much you value the "burnishing" on the toe.  The obvious thing to do would be to strip off all the polish and start again.  But you will lose some of that gradation on the toe.
