I perfectly understand your disappointment but imho returning a pair of shoes only because they're slightly creased, the same creases you will get at the first wear is a waste of time and money.

Better to ask for a discount or a gift (free shoetrees ?)

I do not agree with that. Everyone's feet create different crease patterns. The particular creases in that shoe are pretty significant. OP may have gotten lucky and found minimal creasing when he put them on. I know that I've had some shell shoes with very minimal creasing. Why should he spend $800 on a pair that he has no chance to "self-crease"?

I'm not saying I don't sympathize, but the Op said he particularly liked the color shade of this particular pair. That's a harder thing to nail and, to me, worth it to keep over the minor creasing. While his return pair may be crease free the shade is back to rolling the dice.

Good point. I guess ultimately he decided that he'd rather have a blank canvas and take a chance on the shell shade.

Who doesn't love free shoe trees?!

One could actually smooth those creases over and make them almost disappear...

Guys, thank you for all the diverse opinions! The shoes are enroute to C&J for an exchange. I'd like to commend the professionalism of the C&J staff who took the order and attended to the request for an exchange - exemplary customer service.

That's at least something CJ should have done before posting them to the original owner if they screwed it already by letting someone to try it on .. Guess these will end up with someone who doesn't care/ is not aware..

I find the instep to be a bit higher. I would not say that it's especially wide but for me it stretches sufficiently.

Posted this in a new thread but realized that it would perhaps fit better here.

 

Hello,

 

I'm a new member. I own a few pair of dress shoes but could use some advice on purchasing a new pair. I have incredibly flat feet which make it difficult to 

 

My sizing is as follows:

-Allen Edmonds Park Avenue 8.5D (though I may should be 8.5E)

-Allen Edmonds Cavanaugh 8.5E

-Alden Indy Boot 8D

-Alfred Sargent Wingtip 8.5 D (US sizing; shoe is too large, too much room and I've nearly worn the toes down to the welt)

 

 

I would like to buy the Crockett and Jones Finsbury but am unsure which size to buy and which color would be appropriate for charcoal as well as navy slacks.

Please let me know if I have posted in the wrong section. Thank you.

It's really difficult to say with those photos. Best with a close up of leather
I would guess shell, because of price.

I do not find it to be roomy, nor do I find it to have a high instep. I do find it to be narrow. I wear UK11E in 325 last and UK11.5E in 324 and 3337 lasts.
