My Dad very kindly polished my boots for me. Unfortunately he did not think that there was a difference when it came to shoe polish colours. My lovely light tan boots are now a dark dark brown. Does anyone know how I can fix this or do I have to take it to a cobbler and fork out a fortune to have them fixed?
You can get a professional product which might remove the old polish. Fiebings make Dyes, Preps and Leather Nourishers.
I dyed a pair of brown boots black with their products and they turned out well. If you go to the following website and contact them, asking advice, they may be able to recommend a product. I found them very helpful.
Thanks for the tips. I have dark brown boots already so no point dying them. He did do a good job on the polish though . They were sooooo nice. A lovely tan. Oh well. Shit happens. Will try baby wipes but there is a lot of polish on there.
