Allen Edmond got a bit scratched up. Not sure how I can alleviate the situation. Attached are the photos. Are these marks permanent?
looks more like a gauge then a scratch, few layers of paste and wax should probably fill/hide it but doubt there is any way of fixing it permanently unless you wanna dye it but I wouldn't recommend that. Tbh it's in a place where no one will ever notice it if you just put on a few layers of paste and maybe some wax if you want.
YES you can use to much and no you should be using many thin layers to create the effect you are looking for. Thick layers can have many adverse effects such as depositing visibly in creases and clogging the pores of the leather.
Very helpful - thanks.
I bought some Loake shoes and I want to buy shoe trees for them.
I couldn't find anything else but the cheapest "spring with a knob at the end" type trees in my country... Of course VASS sells good trees but only to their customers.
Do you think these will do ?
