John Varvatos cracked leather shoes

Hello everyone! First post ever! So I got a pair of John Varvatos cracked leather shoes. I like them. Got them really cheap. They're super stylish and comfortable. I had rubber vibram soles put on because they were so LOUD! I didn't like the added attention when i walked into a non-carpeted office/room. Ok so my question! I don't mind the cracked look of it especially on the sides but take a look at the toe. I feel it's too cracked... You can see an almost orange color peeking through (look at pics). The flash makes it look much more cracked than it actually is. Is there some kind of liquid I can buy to make it look less cracked? Blend the colors a little better? I feel that if there wasn't such a contrast of colors than it should look ok. Any thoughts? Thank you! digi

Not sure what you can do about that. You could try polishing them, I guess, to see what that would do. Did you buy them used or something? Those are seriously distressed.

Sorry for the ignorance but where do I get lexol? Can I find them at a target or do I need to go to some specialty shop?
