Got these shipped to me, and clearly one has been exposed for quite some time to lighting as a floor model. Any suggestions?
I plan on trying to lighten the other shoe w/ natural sunlight, but maybe there's a better way, as in darkening the floor model safely?
FYI the original color is Chestnut
Send them back and get a replacement. Darken the lighter shoe or put the darker opne in the sun and wait about 2 yearspost #19 of 466/24/12 at 9:00pmQuote:
This is what happens when you buy discounted stuff. There's a reason things are on sale or 2nds even if to your untrained eye it's not apparent. Just buy a new pair of shoes in a brand you can afford and stop trying to live Large when you're a pauper or some HS kid.post #20 of 466/24/12 at 9:03pmQuote:

I had similar situation on a pair of amber color shoes. I have polished them for last 12 months . But still one looks slightly different to other. In last 12 months I have polished them over 20-30 times. I also have a pair of shell with the same issue. I haven’t even bothered after 5/6 polishes. If the price is good keep them. But you will always see the difference.
BTW my shell pair I took them to cobbler and he said its not possible to polish and change color in shell.post #22 of 466/25/12 at 4:55ampost #23 of 466/25/12 at 7:37amThread Starterpost #24 of 466/25/12 at 7:40ampost #25 of 466/25/12 at 8:29amThread Starterpost #26 of 466/25/12 at 9:52ampost #27 of 466/25/12 at 10:12ampost #28 of 466/25/12 at 11:05ampost #29 of 466/25/12 at 11:16amThread Starterpost #30 of 466/25/12 at 11:19amThread Starter
Do you mean this? Because that's a cream... also, what about trying some neatsfoot oil to darken the shoe? Says the Renovateur has neatsfoot in it, so perhaps neatsfoot alone will do the trick, I dunno....
