    I managed to inflict a quarter-inch gouge in the toe of my couple-month-old grensons, the result of too-long legs and too-small cab backseats. The cut is not very deep, but I can see the non-black of the leather. Any advice on how to repair? I'm in NYC if anyone knows of a cobbler particularly adept at this sort of thing.

    If you don't want to do it yourself, Shoe Service Plus will do something similar for you at a small cost. It was certainly aggravating the first time it happened to me, but I think it adds to the character of the shoes, at least for brown.

    Thanks for the responses. I think i'll go with the Shoe Service Plus option. The idea of me with a lighter, knife and some polish hunched over a shoe frightens me.
