    Awesome... I wish I could take my shells somewhere and have someone do this for me. Haven't found any places in Houston that know what to do with shell cordovans. Any suggestions other than getting off my butt?

    Alden "Milkshake" Suede Indy for Epaulet

    The pictures are in natural light, but the photos are overexposed making the suede look white. The suede looks more like an ivory or pearl white. Look at the darker area around the mouth of the boot in the last photo.

    Photo lineup in natural light, but with a bit more shadow than I'd prefer. Oh well.

    [​IMG]

    Natural Chromexel Indy (403) - From Shoemart in January. Brushed after every wearing and one app of reno. Has darkened and made the color more rich - nowhere near the "natural" color in which they came. Almost time, though, to box them up for the summer.

    [​IMG]

    #8 Wingtip Balmoral (974) - An Ebay snag in December (>$100). Have been working on "restoring" these from abuse from their previous owner. Again, brushed after every wearing, and reno'd twice. There's finally some color starting to show up on the toe and the vamp - I think the previous owner had used black polish on them, especially over the toe box, and so the shell was dead when I first got them.

    [​IMG]

    Cigar Long Wing Blucher (975) - Bought off the forum, from Shoemart originally. Again, only ever brushed vigorously and reno'd once.

    Every time I see an Indy boot I'm tempted...

    Thanks for the heads up. I wouldn't have snagged these without your tip off. My size sold out within 48hrs.

    The sun was pretty intense today. I will take some more pictures when I can get better lighting or maybe with a grey card for color correction. I lost my camera while on vacation, and I really need to think about getting a new one.

    I don't think I've seen natural chromexel age that way before, but it looks great.
