Well, sizing up is not magic. Shoes come in lengths and
widths. So that foot may need to be fitted longer and
tighter (or narrower). The leather may indeed be poor quality or mismatched for quality but while creasing would occur and be worse on the shoe that had the poor quality leather, it would not necessarily be creasing at an angle. And the way in which it creased would not look so apparently like there was more leather over the joint than there needed to be.
