    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Leather creasing/cracking gone too far?

    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.
