Scuff marks steal the luster from leather shoes. An errant step, a clumsy dance partner or contact with a sharp or abrasive object is all it takes to leave your shoes looking scraped and blemished. But scuffed leather shoes are not necessarily lost. Minor scuffs and even some major ones can be buffed out and covered up. Knowing how to remove scuffs can save you the cost of new shoes and the trouble of finding a comparable pair.
ModerateInstructionsThings You'll Need:
Refinishing spray
Shoe-cleaning cloth
Leather repairer
Masking tape
Gum eraser, microfiber cloth or terry cloth (for patent leather shoes)


Cotton swab and rubbing alcohol (for patent leather shoes)
Dull Leather Shoes
Step 1Bring your shoes when you buy the refinishing spray; you'll need them to ensure the spray matches the color of the leather.

Step 2Wash the spot you wish to refinish. In a well-ventilated area, use a light shoe-cleaning cloth and leather preparer. Allow the shoes to dry, and repeat until the shoe's finish is dull and even.

Step 3Cover the shoe in masking tape, except for the scuffed areas.

Step 4Spray the shoe evenly across the leather. Allow it to dry and repeat until the spot has a consistent color.

Step 5Remove the masking tape and polish the shoes.

Patent Leather
Step 1Rub the scuff with a microfiber cloth, terry cloth or gum eraser. These can remove mild scuffs.

Step 2Use alcohol for more stubborn scuffs. Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and dab the scuff.

Step 3Wipe the shoe with an absorbent cloth.


good luck.
