    Had similar devastation with my bourbon Daltons but was very pleased with the results of a few coats of black polish.

    New, 2014:

    Did not take photo like yours, but, had a TSA agent wipe something on 2 quarter sized spots, and walnut was showing through there only.

    So I tried black polish to simulate the burnishing, in 2016.

    They have darkened a bit, but the walnut spots are not apparent.

    Believe my intel to be credible as they had the pics and sale prices of the shoes. Saw no reason to doubt the dates that were quoted. (Though I was told they'd have to kill me if I shared. Probably a quicker death as compared to what the barn weasels would've had in store!)

    I know this questions as been asked many times before but is there any news of a Short Wing Blucher being released? Paul Grangaard has mentioned it, in the past, but was wondering if there were any updates. I hope he wasn't referring to the LGA.

    Thanks,

    Black chinos with brown shoes is supposedly wrong. Black with burgundy is OK.
    How about black chinos with dark chili Rogues (that are maybe a little more brownish)?

    There was a rumor that the player 2.0 was going to be released this spring. I'm hoping it does come out with a brown grain option.

    That Player 2.0 that showed up here and there on the shoe bank site was brown grain I thought. Other option would be the Nordstrom Madison Park.

    I only ever saw the Players 2.0 on the Shoebank in black grain, which only works (to my mind) for a jumper boot.

    Any pictures?

    I like the Madison Park but sadly I'm a 10b.

    Pick one of these instead. None are walnut or oxblood:

    It definitely showed up in brown grain as well. In fact one of the posters here bought a pair and posted some beautiful photos of the brown grain Player 2.0.

    Curious... what model # is that lightest brown/tan shoe in the middle? Third shoe scanning from left to right.

    I thought I would like natural color shell, but for some reason I just can't get past the pale, sickly, fleshy tone of it...I think if there were some contrast in the welt or somewhere I think I would like it a little bit better
