X-Post from the Official Shoe Care Thread. Hoping someone can comment...

 

Not sure if this would be considered "damage", but I'm a bit concerned with the way the left shoe of my Carmina PTBs is creasing...when I received them I noticed the leather was not as supple as I was used to getting from Carmina.  The surface appeared dry and not smooth and the leather was very stiff and not soft like all the other pairs I have.

 

Well after about 7-10 wears the left shoe is creasing in a very ugly way and I'm afraid I've damaged them.  Over the course of the last week I've applied a layer of Reno then some black Saphire creme polish.  I let the shoes stand for about 5 days but the leather still felt the same so two nights ago I used some AE leather conditioner, let dry overnight, then applied some neutral Saphire creme polish as the conditioner would not buff very well.  I then applied a few thin layers of wax to give them a slight shine but the left shoe would not take a shine as well as the right one, almost as if the leather was different. 

 

The applications of creme and conditioner has seemed to help a bit but as you can see from the pics the leather still looks "grainy" and while a bit softer, it's still not as supple as my other pairs of Carmina shoes.  Carmina is known for their fairly high quality calf sources but these have disappointed me.

 

I understand the left shoe may be a bit too long and that's why they are creasing more but I never expected the crease to be this extreme, especially with quality calf leather.  Are the shoes ruined???  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you!

The exact same shoe is available here on Ebay in UK8:
