My suggestion - rock the flaw and keep walking on them. After a week of wear, wipe down with a cloth dampened with warm water several times before going back to basic care regimen.

Both @patrickBOOTH and @DWFII made good suggestions you might want to try.

Great, just tried to vinegar solution. I'll report back if I see any improvements. Thank you!

Anybody here experienced the "Renovating Polish" line from wither Kiwi or Dasco? It's fairly new to me that a wax polish would "renovate" leather.

Sounds like marketing bullshit.

Sounds like one. I never actually knew of anybody using those. However, it is kinda interesting to know.

I am too lazy to take a picture and upload, but, guys, the deer bone has done me great favor. However, I am not so sure about the "oils" or "grease" left behind, as many said.

 

Please tell me if my bone is doing its job. I mean, after half an hour rubbing the bone on my shell Dundee, the surface is ultra smooth and supple, but I don't see the oily surface left behind, instead, the bone leaves a quite translucent thick fatty surface, quite rough enough to be smoothen over when take a brushing.

 

Other than that, please don't tell me that the bone is unnecessary - I'm well aware that it is too much a luxury already LOL!!

I just used a nano spray. Man that smells. Works well though.

 

Does anyone use this on calf skin or is that not advised.

Damn right! Almost died the first time I used it.

 

I don't see why it wouldn't be for calf.. You can use it for anything.

i cant be 100% sure but this looks like a cola-scotch stain!!(wine (especially red) makes a lot darker spots) ! i am not sure that vinegar ll do something but give it a try and then if the problem is still there i ll give you  a method i used once and worked for me(scotch stain)  but is a little risky!

 

isolation: you can use it but you ll have to reapply after every polishing(polish desolves the nanoprotector film) btw have in mind that protector maybe ll stain your cald shoes

Good way of interpreting. How else would you use the deer bone?

It dries calf out.

You can always load a whole load of conditioner prior using the spray, but still, I wouldn't put sprays on smooth calf.
