    Hey! First post here on Styleforum :)

    I got these cap toes second hand from a family member and wanted to see if the creasing/cracking on the shoe can be saved.

    Is it still possible to save these oxfords?

    Are these polished binder shoes (Church's Lancaster, may be...)? I can't truly tell from the picture.

    If they are polished binder shoes, you could try Varnish Rife from Saphir which comes either in liquid or in spray. It works well on polished binder.

    Surely just normal wear? The leather of the shoe must flex with the foot and some creasing results. Nothing to fret about.

    There again it is folly to wear second hand shoes so give them back and buy your own.
