I have a nice pair of Edward Green RLPL Cardiff Chestnut shoes with the toe cap burnished. I happened to not like the burnish so asked a cobbler I know if they could do anything about it. They said they could use a chemical of some sort to remove the burnish but not damage the leather. When I got the shoes back the burnish was removed, but there appeared to be a thin film in the toe cap area making the finish of the toe cap look different than the rest of the shoe. Not sure what the film is but it appears to be dissolving with the use of the Saphir Renovateur. However, this is pretty time consuming. I realize my information is rather vague, but if you are familiar with this sort of situation, is there anything you would reccomend to use instead the Saphir Renovateur to make the toe cap area match the rest of the shoe? Thanks!
