^^ not sure how to answer your question smile.gif...That's why I think that this was a bad pair/. Overall shoe looks good, except this area in question...Shoe trees after every wear (2x a week) and brushing before and after each wear....

What about cream? Have you been applying renovateur or Venetian shoe cream?

These look like they are in terrible shape.

^^ not a single drop...so your think leather crack is due to drying? it could be. I never had this issue with other Cordovan that I own, even w/o applying cream. Considering that you and NewShoes thinks that it looks less than stellar for a relatively new pair, not sure what else I could have done differently in terms of shoe care and maintenance. I have 18+ yo calfs and 10+ shells and never had this issue. I guess I need to lurk moar smile.gif

My RL marlow seems a bit dry now and then, but some clear saphir shell cream give them substantially more shine and they seem pretty conditioned. .

I guess I need to order some Saphir Renovateur or VSC asap to minimize the dryness, if it not too late. So going back to my original post, should I let RL send the pair to Rago and let them assess the damage or have 'em ship back to me and take the high road? I have come to the conclusion after discussion with RL store that will not replace the pair so obviously I am disappointed.

What have you got to lose by having Rago see if they are repairable? Renovateur or not, eight months seems like a ridiculously short lifespan for a pair of shell shoes that retail for $850.

Those are neither cordovan, nor sold by Ralph Lauren. You may have better luck looking in the C&J thread.
I believe the boots are Cottesmore on the 341 last. The munks are Lowndes on the 348.
