Default Winterstiefel

Hi,
I need your opinion. Have you seen such Winterstiefel ?
The skin is black and in some places green. What could have caused this ?
Bad quality of paint ?
Regards, Darek

Hi Bruno,

I think it will polish these shoes with black paste...

Maybe not, it's a shame to destroy such nice shoes

I think these were polished with some crappy shoe polish that turned into green...

or leather was colored with crap dye prior to assembly

The skin was not cleaned. The fastening straps are also green.
