thisoner- have you tried to clean the scuff with a suede/nubuck cleaner? Have you tried using a suede/nubuck brush on it?

OneMic- use Kiwi Scuff Remover for the scuffs and try using soap and water for the netting to see if it gets rid of the yellowing. If it doesn't, use retrobright:' http://solecollector.com/forums/Retr0bright-Tutorials-and-Discussion/7:1:1126803/'

andrewr25- 1oz should be fine for both colors and try using a suede/nubuck cleaner and a suede/nubuck eraser and brush set for the scuffs.
