    I don't know if it it safe for a newly diagnosed shoe addict like me to visit threads like these. Love Daltons, especially in walnut.

    Do you use a darker polish/cream on these than the walnut shade? Really great color --I feel like my walnut AE's don't show the same character. Also a fan of the wider laces.

    Yeah, those look a lot better and the color has some extra depth. I have seen people use darker polish on these with similar results. I like it.

    I have mostly used neutral wax polish and walnut AE polish. I think I did a light brushing of brown a while ago...maybe a year or 2 but they have since been conditioned a few times. For conditioner I use Lexol or these was some cream polish my MIL bought for me I have used on other shoes but it is neutral.

    I have realized on some other shoes that I do not get the edges near over lapping pieces of leather very clean/polished. On my Carmina semi-brogues, they sort of gather dust around these areas so I am not surprised it is happening a bit here as well...that and I only have 1 "brown" dauber brush.

    That's when the coolest effects happen in my opinion. Just natural stuff from using them and keeping them around a while. I wish those fit my feet well.

    How do you like them? I've been trying to find some decent Chelsea boots (leather, not suede) in the $200 range. I'm expecting arrival of some from Jack Erwin tomorrow.

    I have two pairs from To Boot New York I got on sale from Nordstrom and the leather looks so cheap, I'm going to return them without even trying them on.
    Intentionally overdressed for almost every occasion.

    imo they are decent shoes for the money. I have had these for 3+ years now and they have held up well. Granted I'm not hard on my shoes and I rarely wear them when weather turns nasty out. The suede is comparable to that from other companies in similar price bucket (jcrew, meermin). it's short nap but has enough texture for me. I don't know if JE has certain last(s) but these were easy to break in for me and comfortable since.
