Yes, but  I will badly damage the leather.

I don't think you will. I haven't tried it but a user here did it on a pair of AEs, I think.  Basically, he just conditioned them so they woudn't dry out.

Whoah. Those have to be #2, right? Or are they patinated #8? Gorgeous.

Many thanks, gentlemen!  These are Carmina - their stock model.

Wow, so they are color 8 after all. Outstanding, sir.

Looks more like burgundy Italian-tanned shell.

Heat is one of the worst enemies of shoes. I would not do so in a good pair of shoes.

Have a Great Week!

Gorgeous, J!!! Looking forward to some IRL pics when you get them.

Guys, I'm in pickle. I want to get a "most days" boot and I've decided that I'd like cap-toe jumpers in shell with speed hooks. Probably something by Carmina or Viberg. But for the life of me, I can't decide on a color. I'm between #8, cognac, and "natural." But every time I think I've picked my favorite, I look at another shade, which then becomes my favorite. They're all so darn beautiful.

 

Help me sort this out?

post #1844 of 3547

Well, the darker shades will be more versatile.  The natty will be cool for the summer months.

 

What I do is get a shade for every season...

 

I like the darker cordovan shades for sure.

 

Have you considered the CJ for BB cordovan high boots in #8?

post #1845 of 3547
That is a nice model. Hm, I do see someone on the forum selling a new pair of Alden for J Crew jumpers in #8 in my size. Been considering it.
