^^^ Will do my man. Nothing in the first couple wearings to suggest that leather quality will be any kind of a negative issue at all, but time will tell. The supple chromexcel-ish Norvegese barely crease at all. The leather on the shortwings is stiffer (as one would expect) but their first outing is today and so far there is less pronounced creasing here than on my Vass P2 boots (where there certainly wasn't an objectionable amount).
As you know, I'm sure, creasing has a lot to do with many factors other than leather quality. The problem with judging used shoes is that you have no idea if they fit the wearer properly in the first place, what conditions they were worn in, or if they were well maintained.
