Poast a pic! Perhaps we can convince you to keep them.

Am I being overly sensitive?





I'm about to return them and get another pair, as they're RTW, so should be fine. smile.gif

I'd keep them, will polish right out. To me not worth the hassle of a return. A scuff like that could happen the first day you wear them anyway.

If you do return them make sure they have a replacement in your size in stock first. Wouldn't want to end up accepting a substitution.

Beautiful shoes, by the way.

GDOT right, you could get that the first time you wear them. However I  personally woud rather put my own scars on my stuff and not someone else. It's not major but I'd make sure they have a replacement waiting in the wings and then I would return them.

I can respect this. Especially when one has purchased something pricey like a pair of Lobbs.

For me it's sort of a 'relief' that they are not perfect. That way I don't have to worry too much about it when I do put a little ding on a pair.

To each their own!

I can see your point as well. So really it just depends on what the person who purchased them wishes to do.

I often read that a spoon is a good alternative.

If they do have a replacement pair in your size and it wont take an exorbitant amount of time to replace them, I'd exchange. That said, that scuff is very easy to fix so if I were "stuck" with them, I wouldn't lose much sleep over it. That museum finish is really stunning. Enjoy them, and post some more pics if you get a chance.

Alden Leather Defender for shell shoes & boots...yay or nay?

I've never had problems with the dreaded water spots/welts on my AE shell shoes. I recently picked up the J. Crew Alden Captoe boot in color 8 and am considering the Leather Defender product. I'd guess that a thin coat of wax polish would provide adequate protection against water but I only applied wax to the toe, not the entire upper.

Thoughts?

Good excuse to post a pic of my recent shine job smile.gif
