Many SF members have collections that far exceed this number.

As for the cracks in the moore's that is just in the finishing, not to leather itself. They are correct that some conditioning and polish will help out. I would not be concerned.

TL:DR, I don't think it will affect the life of the shoe, but you could use it as grounds for an exchange. Imo at least.

Thank you for your input about the cracks! I'm not sure that the cracks are just in the finish, since they seem o o deeper than that, and you can really feel them with your fingers. I don't want to need to cover it up with polish all the time, so I'm going to send them back, I know it would bother me too much. I can take to cover the return shipping cost.

The finish on leather is much thicker and stronger than you might think. Cracking on leather doesn't generally happen in that kind of pattern, or even that area of the shoe. If you rub that good and well with some lexol and then brush and build up the finish with thin layers of cream and some wax it probably won't keep coming back it will be gone. I have noticed this kind of cracking on the finish of a lot of AS shoes actually. It is probably just the drying out of whatever method they are using to apply the shine, or it could be that the leather is somewhat finished before it is lasted, then when it is stretched over the last the finish "spreads". I think it can be made to go away if you fill in the finish with some fresh finishing products.


If the lexol doesn't get rid of it Renomat sure will then a rebuilding of the finish, but that might be overkill on brand new shoes.

If you are still concerned PM Riderboot who is the refinishing master and he can give you some input.
