The Allans I just got are a bit darker and less red than my Stows from a while ago.
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!
