    Just bought a pair of CXL 405's (J.Crew). Love the boot, not really in love with the white stitching on the toe, I'd like it to be closer to the rest of the stitching on the boot. What's the best way to change the color of the stitching? I have heard of people using a dark brown cream polish. Will this completely change the color of the boot permanently? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Learn to be one with the contrast stitching. Using polish will only mask its colour and in the process you will lose the charm of the boot. In time you will be happy you left it alone.
