    How would I go about removing scuffs from goat leather?

    maybe i'm wrong but i can't imagine you can actually remove a scuff, just mask it with polish. a scuff is a removal and abrasion of material, so you can't remove it.

    THoughts on ViridiAnne Boots? How does the sizing work.
    Boris Bidjan Sabieri or whatever the fuck? I got my eye on some but it will be an On-lines purchase.

    Anyone have any experience with a cobbler stretching out shoes? Does it add much room (not looking for length)? I bought a pair of Guidi donkey derbys. The low toe box is killing me, and a crease in the leather has formed that's making it basically unwearable.

    Wondering if I should try stretching them or just sell them.

    supposedly it getts better as you wear them,

    shoe stretching normally doesnt add length, i believe its width, but stop by and ask the cobbler

    so when you guys get half-soles put on your shoes, did you just get em glued on? i got a pair of boots done and they're stitched into the sole or something. don't wanna do that with my cdiems. i think it had to do with the wear on the boots, though...

    Some of my boots are 'wrinkle cracking' I'm guessing its the dry and cold weather. Any ideas what should i put on them to revert/prevent this from happening?
