I have a pair of nicely-designed and -made suede shoes in a kind of honey color in which one has a just-slightly greater rust tone to it than the other. Thus, when you look at them side-by-side, one looks just a tad redder than the other. It's not really obvious, but if you look hard you can see the difference, and this fact has kept me from wearing them as much as I'd like. Do any of you know what can be done here? I was thinking that it would probably be easier to make the less rust-toned of the two more like the other (by adding a slight amount of rust coloration) than to reduce the rust tone in the one that's more that way, although I could be wrong about that. Is there a way to slightly modify suede color short of dyeing the shoes? I don't want to go that route if I can possibly avoid it because I really like the basic color they are now. So...suggestions, anyone?
