wear your loafers in good health

Just got my first pair in the mail from Barneys in SF- where they still seem to have some supply.
Got the grants in midnight blue-9.5. The Walktons (9s) are still on their way.
The Grants are a little scratched up with some areas of mild discoloration. A bit disappointed. Is this typical for the Barney's sale? Or did I get unlucky?
I will likely be returning these in NYC in the next few days if anyone wants em.

Didn't even know they carry grants, yea I would say you got unlucky. Though don't expect them to have a sell like this next time, they're discounting on carry GG. How bad is the discoloration?

i saw the grants in blue in the NYC store, they are awesome. enjoy.

a good amount of the barneys shoes have had some shop damage, and i think the blue for some reason shows wear easily.

I will post pictures tonight.
I tried to buff with a little renovateur- not much improvement.
They are beautiful shoes. Not sure whether to keep or not.
Would love any thoughts.

Was that the standard cherry color or did you ask for different burnishing? My understanding is that cherry can be made lighter or darker shade. I believe nick already has Cherry Rothschild in stock so I am assuming you choose MTO because you wanted some customization.
By the way they are great and certainly seem darker shade of cherry.

Correct, not standard, it is darker. However, the photos make it look darker than in person. Burnishing looks darker in the photos as well. I asked for light burnishing and added the flush metal toe taps.
