@GrantStone,
What's the deal with the B-Grades and Final Sales? Your site says "On Sale for $159.00" but they are ringing up for more. A boot-curious customer wants to know.

This is the product thumbnail, but in the product itself there are about 100 different items, with different prices depending on the style. We are looking into how we can add the word "from" at the beginning, or show no price at all on the thumbnail.

That being said, once you are on the page and choose the actual item you are interested in, it shows the cost for that item as attached.

Hey Grant stone so what is in the works? Wearing my wax commander chukkas every bad day in New York and then dressing up when the weather is nice with the crimson chukkas. Great 1 2 punch. What is on tap for the near future? Just adore the chukka makeup on that crepe sole. Bouncy and stylish.

First post here.

I hope i’m using the right thread.

I bought my first two pair of grant stone boots recently, one in natural cxl and one in black cxl. I would like the natural pair to be darker but I know nothing about the color. Before I use mink oil on them I wanted to ask opinions.. brown cxl was out of stock in my size and the 25% off sale got me.

Any ideas on using mink oil to darken? View attachment 1715520
Don't know about mink oil, but you REALLY want to darken them, then Neatsfoot oil will do it. use something to remove the existing polish/wax before applying and get ready for them to get real, real dark.

These Navy CXL bluchers look very green in many lights, especially the vamp. I prefer the Navy blue and hence wondering which product/creme to use to get it back to Navy.
I am thinking Saphir Medaille D'Or in Navy but pleased to hear any other suggestions / recommendations....
Edit: @GrantStone Any suggestions?

I have several newish pairs of GS boots that I need to get to work on breaking in. I had 8" of snow to shovel this morning and I decided to go with the Burgundy Kudu Diesels. The leather is pretty soft and supple straight out of the box but it is very thick and I thought that they would benefit most from this kind of a workout. They are good and soaked now--on the outside, that is. Two thumbs for the Burgundy Kudu Diesels.

The latest and my last GS purchase during this Black Friday sale has arrived. The dune CXL Ottawas in all their glory, fresh out of the box.

I must say that natural chromexcel is a bit of an acquired taste, but once I got drawn to it, I could appreciate its ability to patina like fine wine. The Ottawa/tanker design really sets off the natural colour. Fit is spot on snug, just like I prefer it. The vamp break seems to be nice and clean too.

Looking forward to breaking these in!

I hit mine with a really light coat of Obenauf's oil. They were much darker and you could only notice the green in the sun. Didn't make them navy, though. It has faded over time and they're almost back to where they started. Just a bit more dull. It's grown on me.

You could try the black cream polish from Grant Stone. The maker, Pure Polish, also has a navy version, but it looks pretty light to me and I doubt it would make them navy. Saphir has a navy one that looks darker in the product pictures inside the jar but no idea how dark the actual cream is. I'm sure there are others out there. The trick would be to use a cream/paste and not a hard polish.

I'd be interested in seeing the results if you do end up using anything on them.
