Olive oil can restore the shine to your shoes and make them look new. Apply a small amount of olive oil to a cloth and then gently work the damaged surface in a circular motion until it is absorbed. Allow the shoe to dry completely.

To delicately remove scratches and restore leather shoes, you can use an unusual but effective method with toothpaste. Start by applying a small amount of toothpaste to a clean cotton cloth.
