How to add this "distressed" effect to shoes?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I recently bought some Clarks Leather Chukka's that had a distressed effect where the toe and back where darker than the rest of the shoe(Examples: in the links below.) Since wearing them a few times this black "ombre" has faded to match the rest of the shoes brown color...I would like to add this blackish color back to the shoe...Does anyone have any ideas on how I could do this the right way?

 

Thanks for any help you can provide.

 

Examples - I couldn't find my exact shoe online but here is a couple of shoes that have a similar fading/ombre/etc going on:

That is not "distressing" in the usual meaning of the word, it is merely turning them into something suitable for a clown. Why ruin perfectly good shoes?

Meltonian dark Marine Blue shoe creme applied sparingly with your finger will give you the results you desire. Just don't get carried away on all your shoes. Best of luck and and welcome to Styleforum.
