Hey there, I was wondering if anyone else had this problem? I purchased these Roberts in Coffee Burnished. I wore them approximately three times and used Meltonian neutral shoe cream after the first wear. On the third wear I noticed they were incredibly light in the scuffed areas and underneath the shoelace marks. I thought i’d brush them off and give it a once over with a damp cloth. After some circling I discovered the entire burnishing was coming off on the cloth.
Stupidly I tried to match the shitty patch and do the entire shoes evenly so basically I’ve ended up with this result. I understand that these are supposed to be burnished but I own Loakes and Sanders and i've never come across this before.
huh this is odd. but I like the "museum"-ish finish you got going in the second pic
