i have a similar design in that color. IMO do NOT use neutral on that shoe. my routine is to wear them once or twice then moisturize the creases with saphir dubbins on the end of a q-tip then let them sit for a couple of days. for my taste, i prefer either of the colors you mentioned mixed with a drop of black or dark brown dye or saphir's recolorant particularly for the toe & heel. if i want to bull the toe and / or heel, alternate minimal coats of burgundy or black are used depending on which way i want to take it.. Awesome choice by the way.
