  Anybody have any idea whats up with the dark spot on the right shoe here?  ~One month old, worn 5-7 times, haven't touched them except for brushing after wearing.



The horsehide took to the dye differently in that spot, and it turned out darker.

If Alden won't correct this, perhaps you could redye them black. Not sure if that would work...

The area where the waterlock touched the golf shoes turned purple ffffuuuu.gif

I've currently got said area covered with corn starch in hopes it pulls some of it out.

The use of cedar shoe racks will prevent this. I recommend them.

Very nice looking shoe. I'm thinking about picking up a pair for myself when I return from vacation at the end of the month.

^ You can get them at Jos. A. Bank for a song, especially when there's a sale.  I think I got ten suits, fourteen shoe racks, ten ties, handkerchiefs, belts and dress shirts for like $8.

FWIW, I recently had the DC Cigar captoe and the Cigar Chukkas at my place and the DC boots were VERY dark by comparison (almost black). The chukkas had much more brown and even some olive green tones to the shell and were far more pleasing a color to me. I had really desired the captoe boot with commando sole but shifted my thinking to either a chukka or PTB after having them in-house. 

 

My Ravello chukkas are due to arrive today. I am a bit nervous regarding the color after your comments about them being quite dark and not as red. I will post some pics when they arrive.

Ravello PTB from Alden SF today.
