I have some black and white Leather based shoes with a white sole I got given to by my rich/weird uncle and I want to "healthily" beat them up (So they look worn/not new, but not damaged).

Anyone have any ideas? I'm pretty new to fashion in general so forgive me if this is stupid, but have always liked the look of worn out shoes. My style is kinda rugged so it fits. These stupid shoes are so big and ugly that i kind of want to take some contrast out if it because what i normally wear is old navy or topman shirts and bootcut levi's

I was thinking just submerge them in some mud or dirt or beat them with a baseball bat or something and wash off what I can with a guarden hose, but I'm interested in hearing if there's a better method for breaking leather in and makin white soles darker

also if anyone has any suggestions for outfits with these id appreciate it all input as i said im pretty new to dressing myself. these arent really my style (they look like hockey skates) but i wanna make em work some how

I think that the only way to accomplish what you're after is to climb to the top of a very tall building and jump off, preferably head first. But please understand it is vitally important that you are wearing the shoes at the time.
Please how can I report this abuser?

It's a very complicated procedure, but I would suggest that you start by clicking on the report post flag that appears on the bottom of every post.

I wouldn't say the shoes are the stupid ones in the OP.

Just wear them, they will get dirty quite quickly. The more you wear them the quicker they will wear out and you can throw them away. Or just throw them away now.

This is a sticky wicket. Just how rich is your uncle? Perhaps you could enlist his butler, maid, gardener, stable boy, or some combination of them, to wear the shoes around until they become sufficiently worn, beaten up, and dirty.

Alternatively, you could pick out a homeless person you can keep an eye on for the next few weeks. Give that person the shoes and keep an eye on them. When the shoes become sure toy worn, beaten up and dirty, hit the homeless person on the head with a brick and take the shoes back.
