I read with interest the current thread on changing the color of black shoes. This would seem to be a very daunting challenge, with the best result attainable being adding colored overtones to the black. But consider brown. Suppose that you didn't want to change its fundamental color (like making it redder), but instead wanted to keep the shoes brown, albeit a lighter shade of brown? I think everyone would agree that it's no great trick to darken a lighter shade of brown, but what about transforming a dark brown to a lighter shade? I seem to recall a post or two suggesting that this can be done, but I don't recall any details about how. So, what techniques could be used to do this? It seems, somehow, hard to believe that simply applying a lighter shade of cream or polish would do the trick, but I could be wrong. What say you all?
