Correct. They are Vintage Chestnut. Sometimes it's the style of the shoe that determine the colour. For instance, a style such as Rothschild with so much brogueing requires a lot more antiquing than a plain vamp shoe like this Burnham. The antique cream needs to fill all of the punched holes before they are polished and this darkens the colour slightly. With the plain vamped shoe there is no need for the extra antique cream therefore leaving them this lighter colour. I've...
With lots of layers of polish applied and patience. You can also apply a thicker layer of polish and let it dry for a couple of hours and then use a cotton cloth with a little fresh polish and a drop of water. This works well on shoes already polished. I'm soon launching a new blog which will have short YouTube clips to explain in more detail.Sorry for the multiple posts before.

And More.
Beautiful!
When I first wear G&G's and these lighter creases appear I use a polish by Kiwi called "Renovating" polish. This has more dye in it which fills in the colour lost in the initial creasing of the leather. It's really important to get a perfect match with the colour though because the dye will stain those areas, which is what you want. Basically, those lighter areas will not be there. I'm not sure how accessible Kiwi renovating polish is worldwide but I'm sure other shoe...
Sorry for the delay. Hopefully have both of these over the next week. I'll keep you posted.
