Spent 150 on some knee high leather boots I’ve scuffed them already mostly the right one. Is there anything I can do to fix them, I’ve put some crappy black polish on them and they look a liftle better but they still look scuffed. I was hoping they would last longer than 4 wears. Out to dinner twice and the supermarket and at home for the day

Aibu to expect them not to scuff so easily

What? They're leather. Polish them properly!

Can you post a pic? Leather shoes are meant to last for ages and should not be ruined by a few scuffs.

Use a renovating shoe cream on them, then protector spray or traditional Dubbin after every polish.

Get proper boot polish in a tin and a stiff but. Then polish.

You need to keep them polished at least once a week

Some recommend a full Tim of polish when you buy them

But that's unusual scuffs place? How did you do that?

They're not exactly what you'd call ruined, and they'll come up fine with proper polish and a bit of elbow grease.

I don’t even no how i did it used to have a huge selection of tins of polish but my dad has it all

You can buy specific scuff polish but they're not really scuffed. Just polish them properly.

They don’t look scuffed due to the polish but did look a lot worse
