Could be wear and tear...maybe tight lacing one day and a significant flex that undid a stitch. I would think it is an easy fix. Good luck!

It could be wear and tear but I only got them in January. And due to the bad weather in Toronto, I haven't gotten chances to wear them much.

I am interested in other grain leathers such as pin grain, alpine grain or highland grain.

My experience as well with the AS Radwell chukka. The color came off the first time I polished them. Talk about $500 wasted.

^ why do reputable shoe makers continue to offer hatch grain if there are known problems? Are these problems in the minority?

Can anyone chime in who has had a positive experience over the long term with hatch grain?

I like the look a lot.

I think GG was it under wraps, because they do their own finishing on hatch grain now. Not sure if their hatch grain supplier (Horween I think) is still having issues.

I also love the look, and would be willing to give hatch grain a shot. Unless someone can let us know it is still a prevalent issue...

I have the aforementioned Alfred Sargent Radwell and I have not observed any issues with discoloration. I've owned them for about 10 months and have polished them maybe 3~4 times. I've only polished them using some Allen Edmonds wax/cream polish in their "chilli" color, since the color looked pretty close and they have worked fine for me. Maybe I got lucky or something, but I have not had an issue with this leather and am quite happy with it.
