Thank you! Really turned out well. I can't wait to get them back out. Totally changes the look of the boot.Nice upgrade!
To the shell cordovan experts here, what do you make of the whitish streak right above the heel welt of the boots I just took delivery of? I primarily want to know if it's cosmetic or a structural damage. For example I know the welting process involves using a heated metal tool around the edges, so worst case scenario is the hot iron accidentally burnt the leather there.

Basically, if it's cosmetic I'll just polish it over and not care. If structural, I'll contact the seller.
Looks cosmetic as @audog said. I can't tell if there's texture to it, but it just looks like a surface coloration blemish.
It almost looks like a driving mark from a car mat rubbing against it (if they're used). I would just hit it with a wet rag, brush like mad and then apply VSC with a spoon or bone. Wait to dry a day then brush again and cover with Color 8 cream and call it a success.
