Could I have some kind advice with regards to a damaged toe cap? Just to get it out there, just a little but of a history... so I purchased a pair of used Gaziano & Girling shoes from a certain member on B&S Marketplace that I shall not mention. They were polished, and this is how the shoes looked on the advertisement.
Looks like they are in excellent used condition with no defects on the leather. However, what I actually received was a dent/hole in the leather that I cannot get rid of. It was concealed with polish and not mentioned. It looked like this (+ bad scratches on the other shoe).
I contacted the seller. who said there was, I quote, "no defects in the leather, if not I would be the first to raise up my hand.... hence I cannot issue you a refund".
I filed a PayPal case, who decided in his favour because the shoes were 'used'. The pictures look nothing like the product received. Of coursed I was expecting used shoes, but I was expecting what I saw in the pictures. I removed the polish on the dent after the case was over (I couldn't before if not he could say the shoe was in a different condition than sent), now look & behold the damage in the leather:
Hence, now I am left with no remedy and a pair of damaged shoes.
My question now those experienced with scuffs: What could I possibly use to fix the hole in the shoe? The leather is damaged and there is a dent. Which products should I be looking for to cover this hole? I used saphir wax and they don't have enough coverage. Many thanks!!
p.s: I would like to warn the community to be careful of 'used' shoes that have been polished on B&S. Get closer pictures before you pull the trigger. There is a distinct difference between an excellent pair of used shoes and used shoes that had irreversible damage done to it. Buyer beware.
