Don't know what you guys are going on about. I don't think anyone in their right mind wears EG oxfords in place of workboots. The stain in question is a food stain and could happen to anyone at any event where food is served. Most people (myself included) don't wear workboots to evening events.

I will try to post some pictures tonight of the cleaned up product (fingers crossed).

Nope. Leave it on for a day or so, give it time to react.
