I own a pair of Red Wing boots. Fit great. The leather got torn up a bit and I could a different color underneath. I brought them to a cobbler and he told me that most men’s boots have in effect been PAINTED with a top layer. Which explains why you see a different color underneath if there’s a tear. He told me “you need to look for DRUM DYED shoes/boots.” I’ve seen only HUDSON advertise those. Any suggestions? Thank you
