I do not know 100%, but I believe given them more limited quantities of hides being available, both Horween and Alden are being conservative with their dyes and going slightly darker. I again don't know. It does vary batch to batch of course.

BTW the neatsfoot oil was what Horween told me to use on them for conditioning maintenance.

Darkens them a bit but they look much happier.

Looking top notch in your Color 8 NSTs. For a minute I swore they were Cigars.

Love these, but a little buyer's remorse when looking at the shell versions. Don't think I can justify both

Sorry to hear, they do look nice for what It's worth, but I always vote Shell.

Forgivable offense. There's not much fresh oxygen on planes. Makes your brain do funny things. biggrin.gif

I even feel weird typing this, but I had the tobacco reverse Greenwich and that was the only Alden boot that I wish had speedhooks. Unlike my shell all eye boots where I only had to unlace the top eyelet to get the boots on and off...I have to unlace at least 4 to get the Greenwich on and off.
