So I thought I found a good deal on Santoni goodyears with double soles at $180.
The shoes come in and one looks a little lighter than the other. I search on styleforum and evidently this happens often with display shoes.
So I walk on over to B. Nelson to ask him. I never remember the guy's name (sorry Nick) but he looks like a Latin American Nick. Anyway, he tells me how the color is applied in layers and how polishing it might not make it match still. And he nonchalantly says it looks strange and almost like two pairs of shoes were mixed up. Well they write the style number inside the shoe and it certainly is the same.
I'm a little peeved the seller didn't mention this. He just said it was new.
Anyway, I should have asked if B Nelson could just re-dye it but I didn't. Any thoughts on this? Otherwise I saw a ton of threads by guys like Rider who use deglaser and dye it after but this isn't my preferred route since I haven't done this before.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
