    does anyone have any experience with Montana Pitch Blend? I just bought some for my Indy's, but now I'm seeing that they may darken the color. I have the 403s, which are dark to begin with, so I think it should be alright, but if anyone has used this before, please share.

    Great shot. Looks great with wear. I have a new pair in 9.5D that may hit the B&S forum soon.

    I use them on my leather/CXL Indy boots.It is a very good water protectorant / conditioner, but doesn't do that much for shine.

    i used it on my brown CXL wingtips from LS. i like it. works well for waterproofing. any darkening was minor and basically imperceptible after a few days.

    I use it on my Wolverine Addisons and it works well. I agree that it doesn't shine up but for those boots I'd prefer it not to.

    Advice on brushing out water spots? Mine don't go away even with 15-20 minutes with a horsehair brush. Do you use something different?

    Went home for lunch to walk the dog today and was greeted by a leathersoul box on my porch. Finally got the chocolate suede tankers that I reserved so long ago I forgot. Contrast stitching on them really pops. The pics on the site are pretty accurate, except the color is a rich brown, not so gray-ish. These are already high on my list, second only to my whiskey indy.
