    Help!!

    So I wore these out on new years eve and it was snowy and wet out. The club required nice shoes so I wore these out in those conditions. I thought it wouldn't be an issue but the day after I realized it now has black like, water stains all over the shoe. How do I get rid of them? Does shoe polish work??


    How do I get rid of these!!

    I'd wipe them with a damp cloth first and see what that does. Depending on the quality of the materials they may be salvageable. If the water doesn't, you can try a water/vinegar solution before moving on to more harsh cleaners.

    so I just did that and like, idk how water is suppose to react to leather shoes but its all dark brown now and im waiting for it to dry out. Like looks like the shoe absorbed some of that water. will wait and see if the stains are still there once it dries up

    Okay well....water and cloth seems to be doing the trick. I thought my mother tried that earlier and she said it didn't work but now I see it has so thank you!
