Can I use black shoe polish to touch up shoes that were painted black?

I had a pair of white shoes that I painted black with shoe paint some years ago. They still look pretty good and I want to wear them to my sister's wedding but some of the paint is coming off. I'm thinking shoe polish will be less expensive than shoe paint so I'm wondering if that will work just as well. There's only one place in town that I can think of to get shoe paint and I"m not even sure they're still open so I"m trying to get alternatives just in case.
