You sure do! I love the way the shell gets light in the creases. Really enjoying these today.

^^tifosi that antique edge is killer! Some orange or light pink laces would bring that edge out even more :decisions:

Looks good! Maybe it's the edge, but those are almost cigar-like.

^ Antique edge does seen to have that effect in certain light, bringing out the dark brown color in the shell more.

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 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.
