Ok, so I was sold a lemon on the 'bay, and it aint worth my while to return the shoes. Bought a pair of calf leather monks which unfortunately have 4 quite deep cuts to the toe area on one of the shoes. Bollocks, I thought. Now I know people on SF tout the amazing properties of many layers of wax, which I have no dount are true for certain types of leather damage, but in this case I am positive it would not address the damage. So, as I only paid $70 for them, I thought I may aswell have a go and give them a light sanding using fine grit wet and dry, to smooth down the edges and bumps, trying to level out the wider area around the cuts. Then blather with polish once the area is levelled off. Anyone tried this at home? Am I a mental?
