today I received my factory second, fifth avenue walnut,
as seen, there is a lining on the top captoe part, is this something expected from *factory second* shoes?
in person, the lining is much more visible and I just can't stand it...
is this considered defect?
I would get some high quality cream polish and try to work on that toe a bit. Get something with a lot of pigment in it like Saphir or Meltonian. I would try it with a walnut or cognac color first but if you have to I may would move to a little darker shade like medium brown. I really think you could cover that up. I'd keep those.
