Which shoe polish for Frye boots?

I bought a pair of frye villagers over the weekend at nodies rack for a super great deal.
The only problem is that they have a few scuffed marks. Does anyone know what shoe polish to use to remove the scuff marks? Is there one made just for frye boots?

Don't use polish. Just use Mink Oil or some other kind of leather conditioner.

Would mink oil work on the espresso villagers also? or would it make them look darker?

I'm not sure. If you have mink oil, do a small test patch on the boots (a place that doesn't have high visibility). I have the distressed leather pair and use mink oil, but the leather on my pair has a different consistency than the espresso ones.

SADDLE SOAP removes scuff marks.

Mink Oil is more of a preservative/conditioner.
