Ok, so I have just successfully dyed a pair of newer Florsheim Imperials (made in India type) and am so pleased
with the results that I want to try again. My question is has anyone made a dye mix that was close to color #8? Or
even dark burgundy? All of the pre-mixed Fiebings options are either too red or too brown. I looked at Lincoln Marine
Cordovan pics but that also appears brown. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone is interested I will post pics of the newly dyed Imperials. IMHO they look even better than new as the finish
on the new florsheims looks very plasticy to me. I used Fiebings cordovan dye. It is a very dark brown but I actually
ended up liking it. It really wasn't very hard...just takes a while to fully deglaze. Shoes still are uncomfortable of course,
especially when compared to my vintage Imperials or AE's but for foul weather shoes they do the trick.
