Darn. Thanks for the info.
I have, and love, the bourbon Daltons. No personal experience with oxblood Daltons, but for my preferred use (jeans or business casual), bourbon is about right.
However, if you are on the fence between bourbon and walnut, you can have both! Bourbon is walnut-dyed leather with black burnishing. If you get bourbon and decide you don't like it, you can strip the burnishing (renomat recommended) and hit with a coat of walnut polish. Voila - discounted walnut Daltons. If you place too high a premium on your time to make this worthwhile, a cobbler can probably do the same for far less than the price difference.
Thanks for the great advice, jet. I might be a little apprehensive about trying to strip out the burnishing completely, so what are your thoughts on just using walnut polish alone? Probably wouldnt get them as "pure" as using the renomat with the polish, but maybe closer to walnut in general?
