I have my own pair of Barker McLean shoes and they are a light tan.  However, While repairing them I've noticed they have picked up some dirty staining probaby from driving in them.

How can I best rejuvenate them do you think?  Especially removing the black mark?

Yeah I tried it just after posting.  Had thought it was much deeper ingrained.  Once tgat’s Done is there something else I could use to generally clean off the grime then nourish and re-polish?  What do you recommend.  I have very little shoe care here.

I wash mine in soapy water , scrub lightly with cloth or sponge , rinse and let dry, then use a light/medium tan jar polish and they come up a treat , you’d have to be careful because of the suede. I do it with customers Sweeneys, barkers etc all work well.

what about using saphir omni iv used on leather before it does come up really well then polish using saphir cream or maybe using the Saphir Renovatrice Renovating Cream to cover the black mark its a really good product just go carfeful not to get on suede.

Saphir Omni is for suede not leather and renovatrice is for covering small scuffs not large areas as it sets hard

i have used Omni on leather and it worked a treat... even removed red wine only reason i used it on leather was asked colledge rep for some recommendation on removing stain on some soft leather shoes customer used shoe stretch spray and it marked leather on outside having used the omni on the pale pink shoes and it took the mark out so altho i doesn't specifically say for leather its always worth a bash
