Those who have already visited some thrift store boots, old should have noticed that black boots ancient, when used, start to get parts brown. This effect is typical of boots vintage rare today.
The majority of leather today is basically dyed in large vats. During the process, the skin is placed in a barrel, beaten, and left to soak for the dye to soak into the leather the whole. The color is super well-fixed.
The vintage effect, where the natural wear and tear of use reveals the tanned leather under the paint surface, it happens in pairs, made of leather with the color was applied more to the surface (paint or spray).
The detail that reveals this type of leather is the raw edge underneath the black ink. The edge is well apparent in the leather, calcanheira, handles, or any other part that reveals the edges of the leather.
The technique can even be considered the worst in the industry of mass, that is already fixed minus the color, but it is quite appreciated by true lovers of boots.
Today the leather with dye surface is used more and more in niche products, since it is difficult to explain to the client why your boot is changing color. Some brands that make boots that age with this visual are the Mr. Freedom, Attraction Co, Viberg, Lone Wolf, Red Wing.
The effect is not unique to the black leather, and occurs in virtually any boot is made with leather Horween Chromexcel. The following are some examples of boots used and new。
