Just ordered and received a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots in the Cordovan No. 8 color. It's my first pair of GYW shoes so I'm probably just being paranoid, but I wanted to make sure. These are new, so I'm guessing they've maybe just been tried on before, so is this just normal wrinkling or is it loose grain?
You can also see a black spot on the toe of one shoe, but I'm not sure that's really that big of a deal, I mostly just want to make sure it's just normal wrinkling and not a loose grain type of defect.
I see that a lot in chromexcel leather. I honestly don't like it, but I think it's normal.
