I picked up a pair of Bluchers from the SF store this summer. I have used them occasionally, yet the right shoe seems to be aging quite rapidly, with a lot wrinkles on the leather. I am not referring to the natural wrinkles that comes from using them, rather the very small ones that seems to indicate broken leather. I have polished them every other time, always using the alden shoe trees.
First image of both shoes
cloese up on the right shoe. Notice how the leather is behaving
For this photo, I have inserted the shoe trees. Notice how the small wrinkles still appear.
Any ideas? I beleive they are the in the Barrie last, and I have the Indy boot in the same last and they have aged beautifully.
