Hey can someone tell me what causes the following issues?
These are photos of a new pair that were MTO and just arrived. I have only worn them inside briefly to try on and noticed after the first try so I i'm not 100% on if they were already there or showed up after trying on but they appear to varying degrees on both shoes (and on the side photos both sides). Should they be sent back for being defective or did I just order poor quality footwear? (fwiw the leather is supposed to be aacrack baby calf which i asked around here prior to ordering and heard that it was top notch stuff)
Also I have noticed that this kind of side ridge has formed on a pair of my Allen Edmonds; but only recently, and they are a year and a half old)
