Getting some broader thoughts on this. I sustained a nasty cut to my AE Strand. The cut on the wider portion of the foot isn't so bad when my foot and weight are on it, however, that slice in the toe is somewhat deeper and does appear. See pic below
1)Has anyone had any luck with liquid leather type products to fill slices like this? Effective? not so much?
2) I've seen some postings about celluloid glue (which seems to no longer exist) and bone burnishers, but I don't think I can apply enough pressure to even get the two edges of the slice to meet.
3) Should I create (wait for) a patina to the shoe? Or bite the bullet and grab another pair?
Thanks in advance for the help!
edit: already asked a local cobbler, and he said the cut was sustained to the leather, so there wasn't so much he could do
