I acquired this pair back in 2007 I believe on eBay. As you can see in the pictures, before pictures, there are a lot of surface scuffs on the leather. To clean the shoes, deep cleaning was used inside and out. I mainly used dish-washing soap and a brush to take care of that. The scuff areas were repainted with Angelus Leather Paint mixed with a ratio amount of Angelus Duller to give the finish a more natural look. If it's not added, you will end up with a glossy finish. The pen mark was removed using a Magic Eraser. The toe boxes were stuffed with grocery bags to help alleviate the creases and fix the shape.
