Andy boots: These run about a size large, and I ordered a size down, so that's good. For whatever reason, I'm not all that impressed with the leather. They look like they could be styled well - the opening of the shaft is extra-wide, so they're pretty much meant for tucking - but probably not the kind of thing I'd wear all that often. Also, they're really awkward to get on, probably exacerbated by my large feet and high instep.

Dick boots: The leather's tough and distressed, not anything mind blowing but definitely interesting. They're a little wacky without necessarily coming across as golf-ninja specifically. They have a chunky sole and somewhat bulbous toe, and they might go pretty well with the LVCs I just picked up. peepwall[1].gif Unfortunately, these definitely run TTS. I ordered a 44, and there's no way I could wear them.

I have the same Ann D boots in nubuck and I really like them, but yeah, they're a real pain to get on. I also didn't find that they ran large ...

Also, I don't know if it's just this type of leather (calfskin) or the "style" that W+H was going for with this shoe, but the leather looks a little odd and creased all over. Maybe some of you SF experts can chime in on that point...see pics.

Question = 

 

Apparently, for this seasons W+H sneakers, this is not a defect or 'damaged leather', but how W+H designed the texture of the leather to look like. Personally. I think it looks like shit.

 

Thoughts on keep vs refund.  (I'm leaning toward returning for a refund)

 

Pics that were sent to me by store saying all the W+H sneakers from this season look like this.

There isn't an "issue", i just wasn't expecting that texture to look like that.
