Learned from you my man! Dont forget that you introduced me to shell and then you post insane boots on insta I know the owner and when he comes to SF I go see him. I dont mind if its darker or lighter. Patina is always nice and I am understanding shades vary from batch to batch Wilkes Bashford in SF. Franco brings his newest collection and has created a perfect last for my foot so I choose what style/color I want. Hes asked for me to not put pictures up just yet so I have to respect it but I posted it and got a ton of interests. Thanks bro! Unfortunately EG doesnt work for me as it does for you so this is the next best thing!
