Robson's Polish on my smarter shoes for a while now and it's great stuff.
Just brush them, buy a suede brush like this.

what product can you recommend to achieve this much darker look ?Rough-Out care is a pretty interesting topic. Is there a special brush for rough-outs? RW do offer one: [img width=300 height=300]http://redwing-berlin.de/system/html/Red-Wing-Nubuck-Suede-Cleaner-Kit-f761d5d9.png[/img][img width=387 height=400]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-nmHrPsby6i8/UgI3IDqGefI/AAAAAAAANzY/fz9U-ynuPC4/s400/photo+(23).JPG[/img]
Bring life back to those worn soles. All it takes is water and some canvas. Dip your index finger in water and rub it along a small portion - about two to three inches at a time. Let the water set for at least twenty seconds. Using the canvas, quickly rub it back and forth over the treated area. The friction will cause the area to darken back up and gives it a nice shine.had a [i]"Boot Call"[/i] last night__ 1st batch lined up & got what they wanted ;) ...

[img width=640 height=557]http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/2778/kxj4.jpg[/img] was about time to show my lone wolfs some love:
...so fecking happy with those boots :-* As alluded to over on the Trickers thread, these beautiful old shoes seemed to have a dried out (?) sole and heal. Hopefully you can see in the picture how the layers in the heal unit have started to come away from each other.
Has anyone else experienced this before? I'm familiar with reconditioning the leather of a shoes upper, but is this possible with the sole and heal?

Took out my rough-out Viberg and gave a TLC, cleaning the indigo transfer which might help in selling them :) and if not should persuade me to not selling but instead send them for a resole.
I used a Red Wing Nubuck/Suede Cleaner Made In USA. Did as instructed by rubbing of the suede bar, back and forth with added pressure especially on stubborn indigo stains. Scrubbing went on for a few minutes; 10-15 minutes and then followed by brushing it with a bristle brush to clear the residues.
All in all, imo it works fine if not great. Instruction states for deep stain, wet both suede bar and stain and then clean or dry with a rag which I didn't do.
Anyway here are the results. Pardon the pics spam.

Done in the hotel here, so just the brush in the hotel, but what a difference

Seriously though, maybe something like snow seal would work... Also I believe that White’s come stock treated with LP on the edge. I've been useing LP to keep my boots natural edge sealed from stains and as you can see they have darkened a lil... but it's a light patina and not a bad thing IMO.
