The proprietor of the (somewhat creepily-named) blog Fleshfoot is a man named Dave.  Dave purchased a pair of natural-leather hobo boots made by Esquivel, and he intends to wear them every day for the next year and document their aging process.  Like raw denim, untanned leather gains patina with wear, and we can expect the band-aid color above to gradually transform into a dark brown by the end of the year.  I’m excited to follow the process.
