Thanks for the reply Traver. That was my worry as well. I guess there's no way one could reserve cracked leather- no matter how much conditioning there is.
i've dropped Herringshoes an email to inform them of this. Not sure what would their response would be though.
Would you accept a pair like this? the shoes are great, fits well but am considering a return actually.
Herringshoes may be able to come up with a repair solution.
Otherwise, you can try find a really reputable cobbler and see into having the whole vamp getting patched. @DWFII, please help us out in this section - it can get heavily sensitive.
