Dansko Shoes Rehab
I bought the above shoes at the thrift store for $4.97. They are Dansko brand and super comfortable. They showed very little wear on the soles of the shoes. Dansko is a pretty expensive brand that retails for $100 or more per pair. Looking at the shoes, I thought I could rehab them and make them look pretty good with just a little effort. I started by using leather conditioner on them and let that sink in and dry. I then used brown shoe polish on the non suede leather parts. I finished it off by using a brush for cleaning suede on the suede parts of the shoes. I spent about 10 minute of actual hands on time on these. I think they turned out really well and I will be using them for years to come in the Fall and Winter months. I love being able to make something that is a bit beat up look great again!
