I'm about to make a order on Tan Scotch grain country boots as they don't have them in Dark Brown Country, meaning I would have to go with the MTO process to get them in Dark Brown, which is expensive and lasts too long.
The thing is, C&J store manager told me they have a "shoe doctor" in their store and that he can darken them to almost Beechnut color !?
I was wondering, what is a "shoe doctor" in the first place, and what's he going to do with the boots to darken them that much and will that be a permanent solution?
Is that something safe? I would be paying the full price for these boots, so I wouldn't like to give them a green light and receive a messed up brand new shoes ..
There are some boots at Purdey that look like a Coniston boot in dark brown.
