Excuse for the simple question but I just try to understand;  Why many of you treat the toe/heel with a darker polish to create such a different/patina effect?.  Do you really think is so nice?.  I have never done it ( no different colour/patina treatment in any of my shoes) but I am just thinking to move forward with one pair and see the results myself.  I might consider it. Thanks.

I don't think anyone would do that if they didn't think it looked nice. And anyone who doesn't like the look should probably avoid it. Choice is good. I like it.

Edward Green and their customers think so. Most of my shoes straight from Edward Green use the same treatment. I think it looks good.

This third pair is in Midnight Blue

They came with the darker nose and heels. I just polished them in the same way, trying to change the shape of the dark part on the nose slightly, because it was somewhat straighter than I like (like a captoe).

those shoe toes straight from the factory aren't darkened with polish. they are burnished on a burnishing wheel which permanently darkens those areas.
