If I have a scar on my shoes and I don't want to use cream because I am afraid of altering the color what should I do to correct it ? Neutral wax wont cover the scar, right ? I bought the shoes a week ago.

It's a good book. And a fascinating look at the shoemaking in Eastern Europe and esp. the somewhat divergent Austro-Hungarian tradition. As such it reflects a somewhat singular perspective...although there is much that is universal too. Every shoe aficionado should own this book and read it.
To the extent that a person is able to empathize and/or imagine being one of the makers...and the time and difficulties and skills involved...there's a lot to learn here. If only (by comparison) why and how shoemaking and shoes have been dumbed down to meet consumer demand, and how age old standards of quality have been sacrificed to ignorance and the bottom line.
But it is a coffee table book, it is not a tutorial.post #7639 of 160481/3/14 at 8:47ampost #7640 of 160481/3/14 at 8:52ampost #7641 of 160481/3/14 at 8:56amHonestly you should just touch it lightly with a good quality brand shoe cream in dark brown. Decent brands like Saphir and such aren't like paint where it will discolor the shoe, but rather transparent when applied with just lightly depositing color. I think you'd be fine doing that and just brushing. Or even dab it with Montana Pitch Blend, or Obenauf's LP, letting it dry and just giving it a quick buff. FWIW, I think it looks fine will the style of that leather and boots. If that is all too much just try giving it a brush.post #7642 of 160481/3/14 at 11:36ampost #7643 of 160481/3/14 at 11:37ampost #7644 of 160481/3/14 at 11:52ampost #7645 of 160481/3/14 at 11:53ampost #7646 of 160481/3/14 at 5:00pmpost #7647 of 160481/3/14 at 6:11pmpost #7648 of 160481/4/14 at 11:12am
i have been cleaning/shining my shoes for years with kiwi. first, i set it on fire in the can then blow it out and apply the liquid to the shoe. i buff first with a soft cotton cloth and finish up with a soft bristle brush. i pay a lot for my shoes and this technique has kept the leather from cracking and makes it look great. i do like a well polished look. they also last for years.post #7649 of 160481/4/14 at 12:37pm
