No shit. These are great jean/casual shoes, nothing too special or even that expensive when purchased on sale. I wear mine to the dog park. They sustained a few paw scratches but it is just patina.

Anyone interested in a US 9.5D pair? Might be selling mine.

Wear them inside, preferably not just on carpet and the problem will work itself out.

If they fit and you like them, just wear them. If you are debating about whether or not you are going to keep them, then be careful I guess. Even with a few scuffs though, you should be able to extract most of what you paid for them.

DonCarlos, it doesn't matter if the shoe is a $50 knock-off, an $800 Darlton, or a $2000 Lobb. It's the tragedy of tarnishing something pristine...like a virgin leather sole. Either you get it...or you don't. I am definitely keeping them, and absolutely going to wear them. That was never the issue. Figured a few people would get a kick out of this thread, that's all. I just haven't had an nice event that called for a good shoe in the last 2 weeks. I actually look forward to breaking them in, and hopefully developing some patina/antiquing.

Go hiking in the darltons that will surely break them in :-)

Maybe I need to go to a carpeted event to ease the transition?
Or maybe I will just put up a new shelf and display them, and buy a 2nd pair to actually wear.

You are retarded.

Get some cloth tape from CVS and stick it to the bottom of your shoes.

I've tarnished plenty of pristine leather soles on plenty of shoes more expensive than Darltons, and it hasn't kept me up at night. Maybe I'm only partially reevolved, though.

What you don't want is any uneven or unnecessary wear straight off the bat- that would shit me off. Why don't you try putting some toe and heel taps on? At least then you know you are just going to be scuffing the soles, instead of wearing into them. You might not wear your toes or heels in any way however and what I said will be entirely irrelevant.

I just popped my Darlton's cherry today.

It looks fantastic in the sunlight.

I find the Darltons soles to be very soft and the toes especially wear quite quickly. I walked about 5 miles in them the other day and the toes wore so much as to be visible from the top. I will probably not buy again. I have not been overly happy win any C &J purchase.

That could be a function of the double soles and them not bending much yet; causing quicker wear on the toes. I put toe taps on mine right off the bat.
