I was honestly blown away how much character popped from the 64 after getting oiled for the first time… my chocolate pair just got duller and darker and that was about it. The 64s suddenly look like they drink a fifth of gin and smoke two packs a day, and would hit on your girlfriend when she’s right next to you 😆

Mostly a color temperature discrepancy... I shot these in a room with warm 3000K LED bulbs; your outside daylight pics are gonna be more in the cooler 5000K range.
That’s called metamerism (the phenomenon of a color looking drastically different in different lighting, and not just the amount that the lighting itself is different). I deal with it at work ALL THE TIME. Always try to shoot outdoors in the afternoon, or get a 5000K (D50) bulb…. I know this is a boot forum with guys taking pics with their phones, but you all seem concerned with the details, so I thought I’d pass on the best possible lighting you can use to relay your boot colors correctly.

Appreciate the info! I actually put a decent amount of time setting these up with my DSLR, so I could’ve honestly been a bit less lazy in post and tweaked the color temp sliders accordingly in Lightroom before exporting.

Well, all my photos except for the Red Wing color comparison were shot in the afternoon, for whatever it's worth.
