Hopefully this is the right place to ask this... I recently picked up a pair of AE Strands in walnut. They are some magnificent shoes, but when I was lacing them up, I noticed some darkening in the leather flap that covers the metal eyelets. The darkening is right over the eyelets, almost like the metal caused it. Is that normal and just a property of the leather that it's contact or pressure on another surface would cause discoloration? Or should I send them back?
Thanks in advance for any info!
Photo please? It's around the eyelets.... No one will notice and it most could be darker polish when they burnish the shoes.
