    It'll be better than using no shoe polish/cream, but obviously it would be better to use the matching color. Do you have any pics?

    Any reason you're wanting to use brown? You own a pair of burgundy boots. It seems reasonable to spend the 5-10 dollars on a jar of burgundy polish/cream.

    I had some work boots similar to this years ago. I would just spit on my thumb and smooth the scratches out. Granted, they were perpetually getting scuffed from use, so your mileage may vary.
