My method...... Wear cheap boots. Throw them away.

I used to do the spendy boot thing.

After years of unsightly footwear, I switched to these:

$19, lightweight, non-marring good-n-grippy sole, and they last way past the "look like crap" stage.
I add a $60 orthotic insole.....and they get relocated to new pairs as necessary. Super comfy.

I keep a stack of new ones in the closet.....6 deep.:thumbsup:

I was thinking of cleaning them so their not so dark... And buying new ones is not even in the budget at this point.
I don't think mine have gotten that black...mostly it's mud and grime.

I'd go with a good brushing (remove the laces) and then the tried and true saddle soap regiment followed by a leather polish.
