Boot trend question....
 
Do you think this type of boot with the dark part in the front and distressed look will go out of style? Also, are they more geared for younger people?

I dunno, but I like it.

I dont think the distressed look will go out of style anytime soon. nor do i think the distressed look is just for youngins. But the obviously darkened piece in the front is something that probably (hopefully) will fall out of fashion.

But I'm sure you have a couple more seasons.

Thanks for your feedback. The dark part in the front is my biggest issue with them. A dark part if is is subtle and blends in can be nice but this looks like spray paint on light colored boots.

If they are leather, you could use a leather conditioner on every part but the toe. In my experience, some leather conditioners darken up the leather a bit, so that could help it blend a bit better.

I don't find it trendy or just for young people. Leather boots can just naturally wear that way.
ditto laura lee. If darks spots bother you just use mink oil to darken up the whole boot.
And I love those boots.

I like them a lot. I'm 54, and I'd wear them.

I'm well thank you! I've been popping back into the hair board and decided to swing by here as well. It's a nice break from law school work!

I was just thinking about you a couple of days ago, so I'm glad to know you're still around and doing well. :)

Curlswirl 01-25-2013 06:49 PM

I was thinking that it might be easier to just return em' and buy em' in dark brown.

Frye's never go out of style and look good on all ages. I wouldn't worry.

Curlswirl 01-26-2013 07:21 AM

Here are the boots in reality not the idealized photo. Sorry about the mess:/

What do you think, would you try and make the front blend with the rest of the boot or leave them as as or send them back for a darker color?

I can't see the pic, only a question mark in a blue box.

Curlswirl 01-26-2013 10:36 AM

Can you see the images now?

I think if you have to ask so many questions regarding a pair of boots you should probably buy something else

Either way though, if it were me, I'd probably send them back and get a darker color rather than take a chance on trying to get those darker. But that's just me. I've learned from past experience, I don't do well with projects like that, then I never wear the things and I get mad at myself for wasting money, and....it just doesn't end well. For me. :help:

LOL yea. Honestly it's hardly darker, I don't see what the big deal is? I didn't even know that was a trend but just the style of it. I would get it if I liked them.

eche428 01-28-2013 10:29 AM

You can buy a suede stone and just gently rub the toe of the boot. That should lighten the toe a bit. I used it on our leather couch to take out dark stains and it really worked remarkably well. Just test in on a little area first.

Curlswirl 01-28-2013 10:34 AM

Is a suede stone like a suede eraser? I have another pair of boots that has a dark stain on them.

As far as the ones I posted about Josephine, they look more like these with the dark part in the front:

Not my style...I will return them and get them in a darker color that is more uniform.

I wouldn't consider these boots trendy or for youngsters. You should be good. The darker part in the front just look like natural wear
