Video Description
This video shows me step by step fixing a friend's pair of Magnanni casual dress sneakers that looked bad after someone tried to cover some staining and fading on the toes.
I honestly almost didn't record this video, as I didn't know if the content was "video worthy". I know it's not an earth-shattering transformation, but I thought at the end that it's still fun to watch, and may help someone. As I state in the video, just be careful with Reno-mat, as I've heard from others that it sometimes will remove the color from shoes.
