    Some of the guys in my office wear those same shoes, but with tassels on top of the kiltie. Tassels, kiltie, short wing. Only other difference is that they are not two-tone. Either all black or burgundy (they call burgundy cordovan). Needless to say, I don't live in the most fashion conscious city, but at least I can say that I'm not originally from here. People also wear striped shirts with striped suits and striped ties. I could go on for days...

    This fashion mistake is committed by many men, in many cities. And it's always unfortunate.

    Deer boning should help. Try Google " deer bone cordovan".

    A little polish (gasp! on cordovan!?!?) will go a long way with that kind of surface abrasion imo. As always a good amount of brushing too!

    Another possible alternative is to have Alden re-dye the shoe if/when you send them back for refurbishing. This might be worth consideration if the aforementioned suggestions do not resolve the scratches. Good luck!
