Possibly faded, though it starts to go brown.
Here's an example of the transition between black/grey/brown occuring on some seriously sun faded Vibergs (in sun for like 5 years at a shop he said I think)

Pics?
The shoes in question are brand new from one of the recent MTO events.

I don't think I got around to posting these but was over the moon when I received them. It was around the time of the job debacle. TS 2019.1 back when bourbon shell was the exclusive and rare(r) shell choice for AE; that is until 2019.2 dropped more bourbon in our laps.

Still haven't had their maiden voyage but the time is coming!!

Bourbon shell Strand (king) on a single JR with a translucent brown edge - the only option for TS 2019.1. A bit of burnishing on the toes which I'll probably try to remove. Some nice color variation with the heel piece; the color is phenomenal and gets me close to my grail color, natty.

Enough talking:

I grabbed these for the RDA sale and did a sole-change to JR for my nubuck Strandmoks - very happy with these! I took them to Charleston for the Thanksgiving week along with some boots, but the boots never made it out of my bag!




The JR swap comes at the standard $40 fee, but requires you to go through an SA. They might not know about the process yet, so if they balk just ask them to check.

Looking forward to making these patina-machines!

Those are pretty cool and a great addition with the JR soles!

Well, since these are technically MTO... here's my variation in yours
