I know what you mean about staining some new boots. I really love these boots but when I first wore them, they really looked way too pristine and "new" to me. I also posted pics a while back of my roughouts with significant indigo stains after only a couple of wears with some fairly new raw denim. And I much prefer the lived-in look of the roughouts now and I'm confident they'll look even better with more wear.
