K. Am comparing the entry shoe brands. Looks like for cost, it's split between Skolyx Mallorca, Meermin Mallorca Classic Line, and JF Line [at buy 2 get 1 free].It can be yeah. Finding a last that works well for your feet and using good socks for the break in will help a lot.
Those look great. They look brown in the photos, not that I’d complain as they’re probably more versatile now.Hi all
My black scuffed shell arrived a few days ago. Definitely much lighter than I expected. Uppers are a bit darker. I thought they would be more black .
Man, I missed them and I hope they let them return. The bootfluencers launching the shitstorm have in the meantime announced ostmo-exclusive promotions for their subscription service.
This is the post you mentioned:with wear they'll darken.....and....I don't remember what thread exactly, but another member darkened their taupe-like boots with coffee grounds and they looked great.
Last December I bought a pair of Cheaney's Jarrow Tundra Waxy Suede boots, drew with the very nice "tanned" colour as they were shown in their product photos:

The real ones that I received are very, very much lighter in colour, something that I would call a "coffee milkshake" with a lot of milk on it: I was somehow disappointed, as it proved to be harder to combine with my usual outfits.
Light changes their colour quite a lot, and I wasn't happy with the "milkshake" one...
I asked in different forums how to get a darker tone without having to dye them. As I didn't get any suitable answer, I decided to experiment with a DIY home experiment: as what I had in my mind was a darker tone of coffee, why not try with some coffee to purposely "stain" my boots?
Instead of making a dark coffee, I decided to use the grounded coffee beams without water, just rubbing them to see what would result...
It was a "kitchen work" that I repeated a few times after brushing them to remove the excess grounded coffee and, as final intent, I decided to steam them to get some humidity that would reinforce the "staining" process. As a final step, hard brushing and a vacuum cleaner...
The outcome was better than I thought: they acquired a different colour tone, without seeming dyed even though they still lighter than the Cheaney's product images, more of a light polo suede colour:
I hope you like my DIY experiment and the final result...
Yea, Viberg construction for 1/3 of the price, sign me up.
