    Hey everyone, how do you get a finish like these on your shoes?

    They definitely didnt come that way, does anyone know what the trick to getting that look and patina is?

    Those Tricker's are orange shell. You'll have a hard time getting anything to look like that.

    Orange shell? Never heard of that. Are you sure they are shell?

    Yep, those are orange shell monkey boots he purchased from Tricker's ebay shop.
    They were originally a special makeup for a Japanese retailer.
