I just bought some new beeswax CDBs from Amazon... are these marks on them normal?

Also, those huge crease marks were not there when I opened the box, but after walking in them for 20 seconds those appeared.
If this is normal for CDBs please let me know, I've just never bought shoes that arrived with marks on them and developed more marks like that within seconds of wearing them. I don't know what to think- I've seen pics of lightly used CDBs that look beat up, and pics of ones that are 2 years old that look shiny and fresh due to mink oil or other treatments.
I have beeswax CDBs and mine did not come looking like this at all.. these look worn.
