Thanks eck. Any thoughts on dyeing to gray? Been trying to find some quality boots in a medium gray for a long time.
Anyone know how feasible dyeing a pair of boots is? These white Augusta's are on sale.. thinking maybe if they could be dyed grey or black it might be worth it: https://www.verticelondon.com/boots/99aug_augusta_kangaroo_hide_boots.html

Also, some in dark brown:
Some Guidi's from Rakuten in reverse stag.. never seen this color before. Not bad if you don't mind paying $2k plus shipping from Japan.. BTW.. what's with all these high end brands calling suede "reverse"? Guess they figure it sounds cooler than suede..
Price drop! x2 Beautiful, quality boot from Officine Creative Italia. The suede on these is very soft and they left some nap on it for a bit of that rough Guidi style. The inner leather on these is insanely soft.. super buttery - and they use suede on the heel liners to avoid heel slip and give 'em even more durability. These have a nice minimalist design and the silhouette is very slim so they go great with a slim-fit denim. They're also extremely comfortable.. the...
