So my cobbler decided to paint over the sides of my leather soles with a brown finish when they were initially black. I tried using a sole edge dressing to re-paint it black, but it the black ink doesn't stay on the shoe for long with brown paint resurfacing after a few wears.
Is there any way to strip out the thick layer of brown paint, so I can actually paint it black with the sole edge dressing again?
This is what I'm using:
I work as a cobbler and i can honestly say that if you take them back and ask for black you won't insult anyone and he should be able to do it while you wait.
