Finally decided to get one of them Stows. No regrets on the purchase but my
wife found the welt too flashy for me so I gave it a little 'vintage' makeover. :-D

She loves them now. Job done! :tongue:

Cheers!

Yup. Not too dark , not too light. A very likeable shade.

Thanks for the compliments guys. The process was simple enough and it doesn't take that much time.

1. Black cream polish for the sides.
2. Dark brown polish for the top area of welt.
2. Wrap polishing cloth on index finger.
3. Carefully, little by little, rub creams around the welt. ( Seriously, very little is needed )
4. Wipe off any excess. ( Especially from upper leather )
5. Use wrapped index finger to buff the area until you get that burnished look.
5. Let sit for 10 mins and rest your cramped finger.
6. Brush like crazy to give everything a final blending.

That's it!

Hope you get to try it one day. Enjoy!

Fantastic job! It completely changes the look of the boot and gives it a much richer look. Great call.
