How to antique shoes using shoe wax

Question: Can someone offer some insight on how these shoes were "antiqued" with this finish?  Here's the before, or how they come when purchased.

Here's the after.

 Looks like just a top coat of medium brown + shine but I'm far from an expert.  Thanks!

 

Answer: 

This is quite really easy to duplicate!! (consider and the difference in lighting ) 

1: 1 coat neutral +1 coat medium brown (wax only)  (the entire shoe)

2: spit shine the toe cap 2-3 coats of medium brown and one last coat of neutral to give more depth at the color
