    I just got my shoes yesterday. Thank you all so much, they’re amazing. I was told 8-12 weeks and I ordered them about October 23. They showed up a little less than 6 weeks in. And on top of the Sandler had to contend with flooding and power outages. You guys are amazing. Now I want a pair of boots with the show soles lol

    Whats the best way to paint the leather fleur de lis on James boots? And do you think I should even bother with the heel piece? From what I understand, I have to use a de-finishing solution (acetone), clean area and dry it well. Paint and let dry thoroughly. Once dried, use a sealant. Sound good? Missing anything? Thanks!

      I would really caution against trying to paint this leather. This leather is dyed through and you will always see the black under-layers coming through. Paint is topical and will not really change the color of this leather in a permanent way. You might be able to add a metallic sheen or some sort of distressing, but you will never really change the color.

        Okay. I’ll take a pass on painting it then. Ive read that shoe cream of another color eventually soaks in and gives it a different shade. Has anyone had experience with this or something similar?
