I have a pair of leather boots that are this reddish brown color. I would like to strip them and then dye them a darker tan/brown color. Any suggestions?
You can change the colour by just painting them as they are - you don't need to strip them of the colour first. But make sure you buy the dye/polish/cream which is made for the type of leather your boots are made of (that is, don't use general purpose leather cream if they are nubuck boots, for example).
