I'm with you. Seems like a ton of exotics on here the past 4 months or so.

Need some help on these. Does anybody know how to remove these kind of scuffs. I tried saphir renomat >renovateur>cordovan creme>deer bone. But the scuffs still remains.

I brush relentlessly, buff with a tiny bit of moisture, brush relentlessly again, buff dry. It usually does the trick. I don't own a deer bone, but I will sometimes use the back of a finger nail to smooth scrapes out. I tried the spoon and it lacked 'feel'. I felt too clumsy. Finger nail seems to work quite nicely.

I get these all the time because of the way I sit in my office chair.

For these I go to the deer bone (or spoon) and a bit of Renovateur as a lubricant.

I'm not sure why you would use Renomat on these scuffs, you know what it is for, right?

Anyway, deer bone thoes smooth and then can brush all you want.

Thanks. I used renomat to clean the whole shoes first because they came with old polish from previous owner.

I dont know whether my deerbone is still usable beacuse it felt very dry. Is it suppose to be like that?

The deerbone is a tool - you can use a spoon, or any other tool you like. All you are trying to do is compress the leather in that area back down, and the deer bone on tool to accomplish it. IT should feel waxy, but again, I often use a lubricant like Reno, VSC or dubbin anyway. I really do use a teaspoon about as often and my deerbone - simply because there is less of a chance of adding more scratches...

All those marks are correctable, it's the magic of shell cordovan.

Cheers,

As others have said...brush, brush, brush. You should be able to get worse scuffs than that out with none of that heavy artillery.
