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.
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.

No, now the little boxes have a green mountain and blue sky with a line through it. 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.
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.
