Looking great Mike!  While I love your pics of immaculate, almost unworn shells on the conference table, I enjoy your pics of worn-shoes in the wild even more.

Just depends....I will say that all of them seem to be darker in recent batches.  Not only is Horween dealing with an all natural product, I think temperature also has a large impact on how much color is absorbed.  Curing during colder temperature slows down the amount of color/lighter and warmer temps cause more color to be absorbed.  Based on pictures I've seen I don't think the areas where the hides are cured are heated/cooled although the vats might have some type if temperature control.  

 

Personally I'm glad to see some variance...I don't want every pair I own of any particular color to be exactly the same.  However I will say some of the #8 has been too dark lately, and cigar too.

 

See Ya,

Steve
