Exactly - use some renovateur and do a bit of burnishing and a good polish and the color will come up much richer. I generally find that EG's out of the box often have a very flat appearance and it takes at least one polish to bring out the beauty latent in the leather.
thanks :) I will follow your advice.
Thanks a lot! Your photos didn't manage to calm my appetite for the shoe, since it's evident that they really work out quite well with jeans as well :D
