Ah, I see. Yeah, that would bother me too being so excessive. The ones I have are scarred / textured lightly more like the left boot, but only on the heels and right front toe.
I don't feel bad for you though considering you got those S49Ms at the same time .
Thanks, new from third party. Wanted the Kudu from archive except I have an aversion to full retail...
Stiff as hell, but
Some guy was asking about horse double zips... These are 45 and I don't think I could go smaller. There's a decent amount of room up front but my toes would probably be too pinched if they went further. Also, I have wide feet. I wear 44 cp (snug), 44 KVA, 10 Lanvin, 12 Nike/Adidas/Asics.
