McTavish's: ruined or improved?
I agree. But they are casual shoes, so I wouldn't worry too much about wearing them. Maybe just let the toes dull down over time and see how they develop.
Take a walk through a Nordstrom or another department store's shoe department some time, and you'll see several trendy shoes that are designed to look like this. I guess it's a trend/fad these days.
