    Here is what I would do:

    1. Strip the shoes with finger nail polish remover. Let dry.
    2. Choose the color you want them to be. Saphir products recommended. And apply several layers of cream.
    3. Then apply several layers of wax polish. Saphir recommended.
    4. Apply a final neutral wax topcoat.
    5. Enjoy your Loake's you kopped at a supreme discount and recolored them according to your own whims.

    Obviously, the main thing is to let the shoes dry properly between applications.

    Cheers!

    A pair of ladies' Carmina spectators for Mrs. P. Skoak had them on ridiculous blowout in their odd stock section so I grabbed them as surprise gift. Hope she likes them!

    Very classy--both your effort/action and the shoes.
