These are quite dark I think. From more than a couple feet away it was hard to tell these apart (color-wise) from my cigar PTB. Very similar tone. I have four pairs of Alden #8 and they are all diferent shades/ tones. I love that.

nice looking 990s sazon.

im wearing mine too. my pair is looking "hazy". I have brushed them, but they fog up within minutes of wear. I've tried renovator, alden boot cream, and of course serious brushing. I just ordered renomat. I hope something will help, I would rather not spend $150 sending them to restoration.

I love the antique edge. I would wear my #8 lwb more if they had that detail. :nest:

I think your shoes look great. thanks for sharing your experience with waterproof spray. I will probably not spray my pair, I don't want the color to darken.

Your 990's work well with the duck canvas pants MrDV. At least you'll have all the shell creams and polishes. Maybe a new brush would do the trick.

I haven't noticed a color change using Nano...it's the only one I'll use. I used the AE product once and it also darkened suede.

I've used the Saphir suede spray with no darkening effects on my suede. I'll likely try the Nano at some point as well.

Nice! I ordered a pair of these over the Summer (same time as I preordered the tankers, which arrived Dec 30th) but haven't heard from Leffot yet. Which preorder were these from?

Thanks, CEE. I pre-ordered these on 7/25 and they shipped on 11/8. I believe these were the first of the two orders.
I also ordered the tankers on the second pre-order and recieved them last week or the week before.

I am one that does not believe that issues with fit in store will get dramatically better with time.

Quit flexing and bending your ankles and forefoot for God's sake!  :rotflmao:
