Post pic and somebody said it's rare that the dying process is even. Does brushing it help get rid of it?

Brushing doesn't help with this in my experience.

thank you sir. i have 2 color #8 captoe boots, the other being jcrew captoe. I think once the jcrew captoe is due for a resole, ill ask b.nelson to switch out the edge trim and welt stitching to match leffot naval boot

horrible quick pic of my jcrew crepe LWB. cant seem to see any dye bleeding, but I'll admit they have got minimal wearing, maybe once outside

sorry for the crost brand posting, but I spend most of time (and admire) the posters in this thread..

 

I've tried unsuccessfully to bring up the shine on some AE brown shell patriots.. Liberal use of renomat and has been applied and removed some material, combined with some spirited brushing.. still cant see to get a decent shine. definitely an improvement over the pair not yet worked on Patriot, but not what I fell is accomplishable..

 

any thoughts? any one (other than MAC as I know his time is money) that has had success? I'd almost entertain shipping this pair of to someone just to see what they could accomplish..

You may want to post this over in the shoe care thread:

I think Renomat is made to STRIP the shell. So, you would need to add wax back and buff after using it if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks,

 

This looks to be in the area of the shoe that will fold as you wear them. Trust me, after a few weeks of wear, you will barely even notice that.

to the clemson guy looking for suede, you might want to consider that the stock chukka is unlined, and i found my feet got cold during the winter with those. but you might be in s. carolina with limited cold stretches.

thanks for the idea, just crossposted. luckily these are lower cost beaters, so I'm willing to experiment.

 

thanks!

It is very common with Alden #8 shells. In most cases, the uneven dyes are apparent only in very strong light. Brushing does not help. Some may consider it as a defect, but it is so common that I think Alden would consider it as normal. Though, I have yet to see similar issues with Bordeaux Cordovan shoes from Carmina, Vass, C&J, Wolverine or AE.
