Display Shoe Sunlight Damage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 

Just wanted your advice on fixing this shoe problem. Purchased a new pair of Sperry Topsiders in classic brown at a heavy discount from a store. One shoe was left out in display and is slightly faded from sunlight, the other is completely fine. How can I get both shoes to match? Should I put the darker one out in the sun, or is it possible to restore the faded one?

 

Would love any and all responses.

 

Thanks!

super-cream the faded one and let the dark one rest in the sun (with light cream)???

But if the colors match, how will you know which is the left and which is the right??? smile.gif


I would just use a natural creme polish on both and see if that does it.

Topsiders are cheap so why buy some defective shoe? And that's quite a difference in colour.

OK rub something like mink oil into the lighter shoe to darken it

Leaving a shoe in the sun might take months to lighten it and it still not be the same

And in the future always buy new perfect shoes not some display model. That's like a used shoe with all the dust and grime settling on it
