After a summer of wearing my scarstitch the problem I was seeing with the dye has cured itself. It's jet black and fits like a glove. The problem appears to be that I received it the summer prior to last and had an injury that made it almost impossible to wear more than a t-shirt, so it went unworn in storage for a year. My boots I've had since early 2011 and they only get better with minimal maintenance following the booklet instructions.
is this in response to someone? any context dude
