I recently bought a pair of what I thought were burgundy shoes on eBay, only to find that they are really a slightly reddish shade of medium brown--but not cordovan color or burgundy. Does anyone have experience changing shoe color to a neighboring shade? I want the burgundy color if possible. I doubt that just polishing with cordovan cream or wax would do it, or would it? What other methods would work? Is it Â hopeless?
