    Not sure if there are any Walking Dead fans here. Steven Yeun (Glenn) was wearing Indy's during Talking Dead.

    Looks as if you are definitely enjoying these. Beauties. Is the inner panel on the left boot still lighter :)?

    Thanks for your reply.
    But the spray contains silicone, I guess, which I try to avoid. Thus looking to some beeswax based protection. But that will obviously change the appearance of the suede. I know that it looks pretty good with roughout but not sure about the suede.

    I noticed that the 2 eyelet unlined suede chukkas fit me much better than the 2 eyelet chromexcel chukka.

    I would not use HDLP on suede myself. I have a post in the Obenauf's thread with 4 treated boots in it, one of them started life as nubuck. It now looks like the top grain chrome tanned boot next to it.

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/132920/obenaufs-lp-it-works/160_20#post_5892455

    Which is fine by me, nubuck has no place in a hunting or hiking boot IMO. Although the CXL still has its nap I don't think suede would over time. For suede I use Bickmore Gard More. It does not darken the suede at all and contains no silicone if that is what your after. It works very well.

    Just wanted to come out of lurking with my first post here and say Hi and thanks to all of you for posting your pics on this forum. I have wanted a pair of Indy boots for awhile now and bought my first pair last week from Shoemart ( 403 Chromexel Indy) ... as a post divorce present to myself.... Loose a wife, get a boot... after finally receiving the boot I believe it to be a fair trade. Exceeded my expectations in every way and just ordered the natural chromexel ones to rotate with. ( I see the start of a problem developing)... Anyway just wanted to say thanks as I probably wouldn't have made the jump without seeing the enthusiasm you all bring to this thread..it seems to be catching.
