How to get writing off of leather sole?


Oct 3, 2010
My apologies if this topic is discussed elsewhere; I am just getting the hang of TPF and loving it!

I just got a pair of beautiful Dior shoes for a great price from a department store buyout retailer. Unfortunately, the great price was written on the sole of the shoe. While I love me some bargains, I don't like the price marring the sole like that!

It doesn't look to be marker; it looks more like grease pen to me. I tried scratching at it a bit with my fingernail, and it smudged ever so slightly, but didn't really budge. Is there any way I can remove it?

Thanks in advance for any advice you may be able to provide!
