    Yeah, I got a chuckle out of this one too.

    Depending on price I'd take the chance. It can't take battery acid or anything, but you can use some fairly aggressive stuff on leather, as long as you're quick and strategic about it, rinsing it off fairly quickly. So if you hit the mildew with, for example, vinegar (to kill the mildew) followed fairly quickly by a water rinse (to avoid damaging the finish) I think you'd be OK. But this is probably a better question for the shoe care thread.

    This.
    The man is seriously Reaganing.
