    I stumbled across these images recently:

    The color of these shoes has captivated me. Of course, they are very old and their age and patina certainly have an inseparable effect on their appeal.
    My question is, will any dark red/oxblood shoes age this way and give that marbled dark cherry color? I am particularly interested in the toe color. Is that also due to shining over decades?
    Are there any Allen Edmonds that will age this way, or look this way after a certain type of toe polish?
    FYI, I am also a fan of the look that comes with having a very shiny toe and heel with a more matte finished shoe body. So it's ok if the toe and heel look different.


    You may commence with opinions and suggestions. Make it so!
