For your viewing pleasure:
The navy blue really pops in natural light. I'm thinking about swapping in a set of colored laces, maybe red or orange. But for the moment, I don't want to take anything away from the natural beauty of these shoes.

Great...now I NEED these, too!post #49190 of 1224164/23/13 at 6:53ampost #49191 of 1224164/23/13 at 6:57amQuote:post #49192 of 1224164/23/13 at 7:15ampost #49193 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:10ampost #49194 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:10ampost #49195 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:19ampost #49196 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:28ampost #49197 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:39amQuote:Originally Posted by HillQuote:
Wasn't this picture posted a few days back in the shoe care thread by someone who had stripped the finish off their shell? I could be remembering incorrectly, but if that's the case it could affect the color.
I think that in general if one regularly uses cream with heavy pigment, like saphir burgundy shell cordovan creme, the shell will keep more of its color and fade less over time.post #49198 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:41ampost #49199 of 1224164/23/13 at 8:47am
