Bought a pair of AE MacNeils in Burgundy Cordovan that I believe were store displays as one of the shoes has already developed a patina (albeit a beautiful patina) while the other one looks like it has never been taken out of the box.
Is this acceptable?
And if not, is there a way to correct the color with creams/conditioners/sunning the other shoe?
AE has offered me an exchange for any other cordovan shoe they have in stock but I really like the Burgundy MacNeil and this was the only one they had in stock nationwide.
Need some advice!
