    I ordered some Saphir dark brown polish to try and get the orange tint darkened to a more brown tone. I have never liked the orange tint on my burnished tan ALdens. I was also hoping that the polish worked well so I can use it o my Meermin double monks that should be here in a couple weeks. Here are the pics. I know the shoes still need some work, but I am happy so far.

    These are looking promising. It's hard to change the color a lot without dye.

    I would recommend wearing them often while you are darkening them. The polish can tend to 'leave' the creases and it helps to build up the finish slowly.

    On another note: The color opposite orange on the color wheel is blue. I would try blue wax every so often. I use navy blue Kiwi on brown shoes fairly frequently.
