I like to use shoe cream and waxes to cover them. If they are deep, you may be to wet sand them with conditioner and high grit sandpaper. Another option would be to use Saphir's Renovating Cream and then add cream polish.Question: what's the best way to deal with scuffs? Is there a product to cover them, or what do I do?
You may need to strip the finish. @Shoonoob is the master at that.What do you fellas do about the flaking off of a shoes finish? I bought these Bostonian wholecut Oxfords, and the finish was a bit flaky. I scrubbed them with saddle soap, and gave them a few doses of Bick 4 before two coats of cream polish. When I took the shoe trees out to lace them up, the shoes flexed and the finish cracked again and, while not as bad as they were originally, they were not satisfactory. Any hope for these?

Too bad we're not the same size.I managed to find a NOS pair of Florsheim LWB (in my odd size). They are 93602 — which I already have. But, I couldn’t pass up new old stock.
When they arrive this week I am going to have the serious dilemma whether to wear them or keep them NOS.
For today, it isn’t Wednesday. But, I still decided to wear my Alden Shell LWB. I bought some Cordovan cream the other day. I decided to wear these another time before I polish them a little.
