 Those look incredible, and I'd definitely keep them. I've had bent speed hooks, and they're really not a big deal. (If you're talking about the kind of damage that just involves them being less spread, making it difficult to run laces through them with the speed implied by their name.) I just pried them back apart carefully. As far as the edges of the welt and sole, that stuff happens easily, and I bet you've already noticed that any edge dressing or cream polish will...

 I was able to track down this picture from the Agatine Eyelet...

I think you'll be pleased.
