I did an awefull thing i know

Does anyone have an Idea how to restore the shoes/ get rid of the polish
on my defense i used the polish becouse of the decoloring afflicted by winter salt
the shoes were brown, at least that was writen on the shoe box and now they are a darker brown

It's not the end of the world. The polish will slowly wear off. Use neutral color polish and it'll slowly return to the original color, although not immediately. Don't sweat it and don't go pouring mineral spirits on your shoes or something like that.

Keep applying the new stuff and you will get what amounts to a new pair of shoes for those around you and if you do it well you get some nice antiquing effect too.

PS: while this is tongue and cheek I have actually done it once and it worked


But i liked the original color, it looked distressed and fun.
They werent expensive or anything, still I liked them.
