    Hi all,

    I recently got into the world of men's shoes and my first purchase was a tan, unfinished leather desert boot. Anyways, I didn't know anything about shoe care so they got dry after about a month of wearing them (see picture). I bought neutral conditioner with hopes of repairing some of the dryness, but it some how made the cracks more visible. There are now white streaks where the cracks are. I don't really know what to do now. I know the cracks can't be removed, but is there a way I can at least get the color to be all the same again? If not, any advice for next time? I'm not sure why this happened; the climate is pretty humid here and it's only been a month.

    Thanks so much!

    Julian

    Who made the shoes? I'm guessing it's a lower end maker

    They're actually Sperry's. I'm guessing that's at the lower end. I loved that color D:

    Patina - just wear them for what they are.
