There is nothing at all wrong with those shoes: firstly, it's French calf leather. It is soft and light and has a texture; even the good bits. What's more, when you choose the artificial "Museum" finish, you choose a leather with a modified surface. Still a full thickness leather, but one that has been artificially smoothed. It will show small wrinkles on stressed/curved areas more than a normal full grain. It looks pretty, but if you're the kind of person who would never wear a corrected grain, it's worth bearing in mind that Museum is halfway there. So don't blame the maker for making what you want.*
*Blame them for sometimes making what they want, and their maddening sizing inconsistency instead!
