    I only use it to fix scratches in cordovan. The back of the spoon trick that everyone talks about probably works just fine. The bone works the renovateur into the scratches very well without causing additional damage to the finish of the shoe.

    +1. If you look at Aldens on barneys.com, you get this:

    Glad you like them. I just couldn't handle the half size too big anymore. They deserved better than to just be in my closet all the time. Also allowed me to get those sweet cigar lwb from shoemart. Oh and if anyone was curious I think they just got a shipment of those cigars a couple weeks ago because they were always out of stock when I looked before.

    Infidel! If you don't believe, it doesn't work - let yourself go, immerse yourself in the full glory of the voodoo bone. Feel the power of the voodoo bone.

    Full disclosure -I'm not sure either... :paranoia:

    All kidding aside, I wouldn't touch this. I would call John Bennett (sp?) at Alden - he heads up the restoration department. Try leaving him a voicemail through the main number (not the 800 "customer service number") which I believe is (508) 947-3926.

    wait, really? damn...that's what I get for choosing the concrete stairs the day I decided to wear these...there has got to be something I can do that wouldn't require me to send them anywhere, I hope

    That makes me feel sick :crazy:

    Without fail the first time I bust out a new pair of shell, I scuff them up...so you're not alone.

    LOL same here. Sort of like a door-ding on a new car. The good news is that with a little saphir renovateur, a brush, and time, the shoe scuff will turn into "patina" - the door ding is just a dent.

    No need to send them anywhere; it's just a scuff. Use a bit of elbow grease and you'll be fine. With a damp cotton tee shirt and horsehair brush I could remove about 90% of what I see there

    Just takes time is all
