This might seem like a weird question but has anyone ever had a problem with snow stripping the dye from edges? I saw a post where this happened to a pair of boots but it was quite a few years ago so maybe this doesnt happen anymore. If this were to happen how easy is it to dye them again?
Definitely still happens. Honest question, how big of a deal is this? It would not be an insignificant expense but could see if we can get the midsole pieces dyed, possibly. Just curious

If putting dye on it isnt hard then I wouldnt worry to much. I was just curious as I live in NY so dealing with snow in the winter is something that happens. I guess I wont know until I have my boots for a while.

I actually kind of like how it looks after the natural dye leaches out. It gives them a used / worn look that I like. If I wanted to dress them up I would likely just use some of the kiwi mentioned above. I especially like how it starts to kind of look white, which, next to the stitching really looks nice in my opinion.

Yeah still looks good. I dont mind if it lightens a bit and looks used. I just dont want it to be like light light. If that makes sense lol. Which if it did I would just re dye.

I tend to agree, personally. Mine got stripped pretty good after some snow hiking last weekend and I will probably just leave it.

I guess the only question I have at this point is will sanding the soles before applying be necessary? If not then Im not to worried about it.
