Agreed! They have definitely gone from being a pair I would be borderline disappointed in to WOW!

Hi first post the oxblood stow & ripons look ace, did you use saphir mahogany on both of these & what colour were the stow to start with?

Nice laces in the brogues too btw can I ask where you got them from?

Cheers

I did use Saphir Mahogany and Black (to underline the edges) on both boots.

The stow where lolipop red and the Rippon where kind of Burgundy
Stow from red to oxblood, before and after:





The shoe laces come from a UK shop with a very good service : http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260727471324&var=560168929376&ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649
perfect on both my Tricker's and my Red Wing!

Nice work on the polishing. I've been working on my new Marron's to get a pit of depth and tone down the red a little. Brogues really benefit from applying a darker tone every so often.

How do you get the creases out of your shoes?

 

I've had my eatons for about a month now and they've creased quite a bit, despite using shoe trees every night. 

 

It actually looks great, but it would be good to know how to get rid of them at some point if I want to.

 

If it is possible, of course.

There is no real way to remove creases apart from not wearing the shoes two days in a roll (best to avoid creases it not to wear them at all of course! wink.gif ), using shoe trees, creaming them and most important, buying them at your exact size (when your shoes are too big for your feet, they will crease a lot more,).

Also when you wear them for the first time make sure they have been "nourished" with cream or oil as you don't know how long those new shoes have been stocked and drying before you purchase them, you want the leather to be flexible not like cardboard

It's finally a question of how you're wearing them, your feet's form and how you walk, some people will flex more than others when walking and therefore will have deeper and abundant creases...

Seems to me like a lucky/unlucky situation in the end...

Thanks for the reply & sharing info. They look stunners, total beauty's!!

I'm keen to work my Marin stows & maybe the Saphir mahogany is the way to go, unless anyone else has any other suggestions......

Laces look great BTW. Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply & for sharing the info, boots are stunners and the laces work really well!!

I have a pair of Marron stow boots that I'd like to slightly change/enrich so maybe the mahogany by Saphir is the way to unless there are any other suggestions....

Thanks again

Kiwi's burgundy wax has a fairly strong dye/colour in it if you want a deep colour. I'm building up brown tones on my Marron's with mid and dark brown waxes to reduce the red, but then I've already got Burgundy brogues... The trick is to do do it in lots of thin layers (polishing off in between) rather than one go. Applying a leather conditioner whilst the wax is fairly freshly applied will help even out colour as well.
