i think most of the darkening is caused by the water +oils+solvents soked in toe leather considering you trying to mirror shine them!! Dont use a lot of renomat cause you ll easylly damage the surface of the leather if you rab hard with it!!(i speak only for the cloth with renomat  :P hahaha)!! leave it for some days and i am sure the darkened area will become lighter!! Had the same issue in the past with one pear!! hope i helped a little bit

My dear friend as you know i am most in wholecuts so i ll try to answer according my experience!!

 

In fact they are "easier" to brake in cause of the absence of stitching! the leather is taking shape and stretch easier!! No they crease according to the leather they are made off!! the only thing  i think i have to mention is that you have to be a little carefull at shinning not to spot polish parts and looks odd!!

Thank you very much for your help, Benhour - particularly about the polishing. Best wishes, Munky.

Some douchebag spilled wine on my shell wholecuts and because shell is particularly finicky when it comes to getting anything on it I had to strip them and redo the mirror shine on the toes. They are fine, of course, but damn, what a pain in the ass.

You should've just embraced the bordeaux color.

I'm not up there with most of you guys, but I have just taken delivery of a pair of beautiful Herring, 'Chaucer II' wholecuts. I am just waiting for a dry day in which to give them their first outing. I estimate that to be in about 15 months time!

 

Thanks to everyone who offers advice on this thread. It has certainly helped in the buying of the wholecuts.

Why would you wait 15 months to wear your shoes?

Munky humor.

I wear my shoes in all weather conditions all the time. Life is short.

As BootSpell was suggesting, I was trying to be funny. Wales, where I live, is know for its rain. As I understand it, new shoes are best not worn, for the first time, in the rain. 

 

Not very funny when it needs to be explained!

Unfortunately it is a lot longer than the life of shoes.

Generally yes, but you never know, but this time of yours will never come back.

Understand and its ur shoes, you are the best judge. For me the itch to wear a fine pair of shoes is too overwhelming to shelve them...
