    Well I finally had time to finish these off.... I went really dark on these, Why? cause I wanted too..lol also I felt to many ppl don't go dark enough.

    ESB boots are dark IMO and i don't want you guys posting to me "those need to be weathered more.

    LMK what you think.

    Natural light.

    and indoors.

    my 2 cents. those look to dark to me in sunlight. esb boots appear dark also because of the lighting on the movie set. just my opinion.

    Nice weathering bruv... I agree that the darker look is better.
    One small detail to add maybe are the yellow/Orange lines through the sole... they run horizontally. I *think* Alex did a great thread about weathering boots...

    I think the weathering is really good, I prefer the darker coloured ESB boots. I used a piece of drawing charcoal on my boots. How did you weather yours?

    Those look pretty good bro, I used the same method. hey, if anyone has an extra set of boot spikes they want to sell, please let me know. don't mean to hijack your thread dude.
