I have been wearing these pair of NST form Alden for quite some time already, I do not really remember if there were any color variation when I purchase these shoes, but it seems the color difference has become more and more noticeable. Could someone share some experience about how to deal with such a situation? Thanks.

As shown in the image, the left shoe is more light cigar color, but the right shoe is kind like dark brown color.

It's fairly normal. You may also notice that the shade will even change depending on the angle that you're viewing it. If you want, you could darken the lighter panels with polish and/or lighten the darker ones with sunlight.

Thank you for your reply! I wonder will it demange the leather by putting them under the sunlight? I mean should I be aware the timing..?
