Nope...that's just natural/clear with a lot of wear.
My White's BHs in Distressed Smooth after a couple weeks in Europe (and a whole bunch prior to that).  Walked all day everyday, and between these and my Nick's (dark olive CXL), I had zero blistering.  These really are my favorite boots I've ever owned.   Album
