To remedy this, I'm thinking about trying to make the grain darker on my boots and that brings my to the following question: what polish do you guys recommend (from Burgol)? Dark brown, black?

 

It's harder to affect the color on grain leather, the cream gets cramped up in the lower parts and is harder to get it out evenly.

Hard but not impossible? I'm determined to get some darker grain, it looks a bit weird when it's the same colour as the calf.

 

I guess regular paint or a sharpie will have to do as a last resort. ;)

 Do you have any photos to show what brown the upcoming Carmina suede double monks are? Are they as dark as these  from The Nordic Fit (also on the Inca last)?


Same suede as the above.

If you use darker cream polish and do it regularly leather will slightly darken. Don't expect significant changes (e.g., tan to dark brown) but the overall color will shift slightly and add patina. This effect should show well after a couple of years of wear.

Hullo?  Uh, guyz?  Starting to get worried about you all.  Did you all migrate to some other Swedish shoe thread and not invites me?

I would like to know first where Carmina sources its museum calf.

I am interested in combo model with dark brown suede top not snuff suede as dark brown suede is darker than snuff suede.

It's a MTO, sorry for not clarifying that. The model is called Hove.

i think we are waiting on @Skoaktiebolaget or maybe @Leaves who can help to clarify where carmina sources their museum calf leather from, things should move pretty quickly from there
