I gave the boots a quick clean after work last night and then treated them with some Saphir Renovateur Médaille d'Or Cleaner and Conditioner. They definitely looked better...
I do not mind at all that you ordered the same boots. BTW, when I ordered the Oxford shoes, they showed me a number of leather swatches to choose from so there are choices.
