It is indeed the dark burgundy one (Alden Indy 403).So I should not worry too much about darkening the leather with Obenaufs? It should stay about the same shade?
Does anyone have any experience using Obenauf's LP on a pair of Alden 403s (the Chromexcel). How much does it darken them? I need to weatherproof them but am concerned about losing the color.
Does anyone have any advice on water/weatherproofing Alden 403s without darkening them? I am hesitant to use Obenaufs or Sno-seal because I have heard how much it darkens the leather, and I like the color as is.
Great. Does sno-seal darken the leather moreso than mink oil? I feel like Obenaufs would probably darken it the most.
Can anyone help here?
I am sure that this has been covered, but can anyone recommend what product I should be using to treat and weather/water/snow proof my Alden 403s as best as possible? I have been using lexol to clean them, but do not know whether I should be using mink oil or sno-seal or pecards as well. Obenaufs? Anyone have some advice?

Hello all. I have an odd issue. I just received a pair of brown fifth avenues in size 6.5E. I noticed that they are significantly wider than my black park ave and walnut mcallisters in the exact same size. For example, the laces close all the way on this pair and the right shoe in particular is very roomy (some heel slippage). What could account for this? Is there any way to fix it?
Just received my brown fifth avenues. Perfect condition. One odd thing though, that is probably not the seller's fault. I noticed that they are significantly wider than my black park ave and walnut mcallisters (al 6.5E). What could account for this?
