I am new to the form. But have followed some of the threads and am wondering if anyone on the forum can share their thoughts on my questions.

I was trying to re dye my Ferragamo Tramezza shoes. In stripping the current color, I used acetone and I am afraid I may have damaged the factory finish. Now when I apply Bick 4 leather conditioner it darkens the stripped off shoes in a very uneven blotchy way. If I apply dye, the shoes just drink it all up making them really darkCan you advise what products should I use to rebuild the factory finish before I start dyeing the shoes again?

I have also attached a couple of photos. One is after stripping the shoe but before applying Bick 4 and the second one after applying Bick 4.
