We will continue to add more each year, hopefully growing the number of styles.

Here are a couple of (iPhone) photos of the kudu diesel outside today. One thing for sure is that each pair will have its own look. They are wet from the grass in the second photo.

I'm excited to get them, it looks like they change color depending on light? Digging the sidewalk chalk art as well. Was wearing Diesel boots when granddaughter and I did this:

Sure did. Haven't applied a true paste polish yet. Gotta get some of that High Shine from Pure Polish.
Turned out pretty good. Really nice and clean. I am a complete noob at this but hope the color doesn’t fade or crack in creases and stays uniform. Follow up with a 3 month update to see how they’re progressing.

These really turned out well! I felt for you when I saw the pics of the water damage, but nice work with the dye job as I'm sure it took quite a few hours. Only thing I may change would be the welt color. I think a natural welt, AE chili (close to antique) or mahogany would have been a better for the welt color, but that's just one man's opinion.

Way ahead of you. I thought the AE brown edge dressing would be more like a stain and less like a paint. Already getting suggestions on how to safely remove it without hurting the new shell finish.

I'm still learning to accept the water damage spots on my british tan cap toes. It's just inevitable since I wear them in rain and snow. Thankfully things are getting better. Not going to get anxiety over a little water or salt damage anymore.

It's hard to do with the beauty and craftsmanship obvious in the finished GS product. It is only natural to want to preserve it. I struggle with the inevitable wear boots show. Personally, I find after a good irreparable ding, I fully embrace the patina.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
