Suede day it is, wearing the chocolate suede NSTs I bought from a fellow SFer. Great shoes.

Thanks, they are on the grant. I wear them true to size. 1/2 size bigger than Barrie.

Thank you. Close, the color difference is only really noticeable outdoors. The day tripper is sleeker than the #4 captoe. I really do like them both.

Yes, the #4 boots are more red for sure. I'll snap some side by side shots this afternoon.

does anyone else noticed their shoes get noticeably darker as they brush their shoes? I first noticed it in my brown CXL Indy's but also on some of my Ravello. It feels like the more I brush the darker they get and it almost looks like more black within the leather is coming to the surface. Curious what others experience and views are on this.

You are not brushing with a brush that you've used to polish darker shoes with are you? The polish residue on brushes will cross over to lighter shoes when you brush.
