That's definitely a bad piece of leather.I feel that your only option is to ship to Filson for repair or replacement.
With the more intense Spring/Summer sun, you should be able to see notable lightening after a week or so. Just be sure to change the orientation on a daily basis to even out the exposure on the different sides of the shoe.I did a lightening "treatment" on a pair of DB X F burgundy shell LWBs. The shoe started out with a uniform dark burgundy colour and ended up much lighter with reddish-brown tones.The treatment does dry out the shell, so be prepared to condition.
compress together ... that is just plain absurd i would return if no discount is offered
Agree ... the 7.5 may be too short if your original concern with fit was related strictly to the width
Taper would imply less space.I also have 8.5D Leeds in shell. They are tight in the ball of the foot and cramped by the toes. On the other hand, my shell DB x F in 8.5D feels a half size big ... I feel that my ideal size would have been an 8D.I would recommend an 7.5D for you ... unlike shell, calf has some give.

Granted, the...
Funny thing is that aside from the blotches, none of the other guys I know would have even noticed the defects ... goes to show how us guys here on these forums have finely tuned senses when it comes to these things.
gah ... wish I was working back in NJ again
$0.99 shipping comes up a couple times a month on my account ... I don't recall being offered anything for free however
The taper to the toe area of the 1-last cramps my toes and the area by the ball of the foot is also quite snug. However, the overall snugness of the 1-last has resulted in an excellent symmetry of the rolls between the left and right shoe.My foot is much better suited to the Barrie last.
