Just closed the deal on a pair of Tan Addisons. I plan on giving them a good scrub with Lexol pH cleaner, giving them a coat or two of Meltonian London Tan shoe cream (a nice reddish, medium brown) and then following Crane's method of Obernauf's. I will make sure to post the results incase anybody else is interested in this.
Also, I was able to get Nordstrom to price match a pair of boots that's greatly discounted right now and wanted to let everyone know about it. The amazon store F.S. Fashion sells many different Wolverine boot models at a hefty discount (I got my Addisons for 260 shipped). I asked F.S. Fashion if they sell factory second, and they told me they didn't -- several posts on here as well as Reddit lead me to believe they're lying about that. Nordstrom will price match this discount though, I had to try a few different representatives to get them to go through with it, but it eventually worked!
