Given I've been wearing only my White's or Nick's for quite some time, it was time to sell my RW Beckmans in chestnut, as they really weren't getting any wear now that I have a solid PacNW boot rotation.  The problem is, I love thir color.  Does anyone have any recommendations as to something that would be close to this color from White's?      
It'll loosen up over time...but if you don't want to wait, I would basically crumple the fabric up, and then release.  Then crumple and release.  Rinse and repeat until you've achieved the desired effect, but similar to raw denim, you may get better fades or more interesting patina if you let the fabric naturally relax from it's stiff state rather than forcing it.

My White's BHs in Distressed Smooth after a couple weeks in Europe (and a whole bunch prior to that).  Walked all day everyday, and between these and my Nick's (dark olive CXL), I had zero blistering.  These really are my favorite boots I've ever owned.   Album
Wait...you don't like Temple of Doom?!  Those are the only two that matter.
