How much can this be corrected?

Possible remedies include stripping it all down and starting anew, or...just applying polish carefully to minimize the contrast.

Shoes are not mine; I would tree my shoes.

Who has had experience with this?

What about just throwing some conditioner and polish on there and letting patina form naturally?

Take them to a cobbler who has a polishing wheel - they will come out like new.

Thanks to all for advice.

The shoes are mine, now. Brand is Barrett, as sold by de Corato here in NYC.

I will see what I can do with them, and report back.
