I have an interesting dilemma. I already have two pairs of brown Florsheim LWBs, one of which is NOS. So, the smart thing to do is buy another pair, right? These are from November 83. My original intention was to strip and dye them to look like the Forest model. But now that they are here, they are so soft and such a nice shade of brown that I really hate to mess with them. I guess time will tell and we will see what happens.

The pair from my last strip and dye job to make the Golden Harvest were more of a basket case and it was easier to pull the trigger on the stripping. They really needed some help.

I have a few pairs of brown LWBs that will be dyed to other colours.
One will become a midnight blue. A second will become purple. The third pair will become spectators.
Loake boots might become green.
If I get more tan/walnut coloured LWBs, then more colours will be added to the arsenal.
