Here's the link. It's brown oil and black oil... the brown looks quite red though!
That's interesting! I always thought that the variation was because of the photos, but if they match them to the other tone that's really cool. I suppose each hide has variations even if it's tanned and dyed the same?
I thought you could order any leather as a roughout? For instance you could have a roughout bullhide if that was what you wanted? I ordered the brown roughout in the boots I have arriving. I actually referred to it as 'brown oil roughout' when I was speaking to Kyle and he never said anything, nor seem to misunderstand. I did actually consider using the brown voyager roughout (as seen here) because it seems to be much the same colour, and I was assuming that the brown roughout would be as tough (tough to break in) as the brown oil is, and that the voyager would be softer and better for a dress shoe. In the end they made the boots so fast I didn't have a chance to change it.
I was originally going to get the distressed roughout (based on the pic above) because I liked the 'milk chocolate' colour so much, but when I was in Hong Kong I went and met with the ultrasound boots guys and had a look at their stock, the brown roughout they had was such a rich and full shade of brown that I changed my mind. I'm just hoping that I can keep it in that beautiful condition through a strict regimen of brushing and not oiling. But at some point do you need to oil a roughout, like it or not - right?
