: I just got my boots today and I was very pleased with them except for one thing. They look like a different color than the ones in the movie. Mine look like a light brown with maybe some red in it but in the movies they look like dark brown, don't they or am I wrong? Any info would be appreciated.
: I read in previous messages from Alden boot owners that this phenomena is normal. Your boots are brand spanking new. With time, the leather will darken and then fade as you subject them to the elements. If you look closely, Indy's boots were well worn in Raiders and picked up a patina due to the dust and sand of the desert environment. If you want, refer to earlier strings of messages on Alden boots around the 6-7-8 pages. -MP
