Keep or Return?

 

Okay, decision time... Keep them or not. The scratch does stand out in the sun, as seen below. It also goes further than I thought. When I put it in the sun, I noticed that it turns right and keeps going... One other thought is that they are 10D, which on Barrie, works for me, but 10.5B is actually the best for me, and Kathy will gladly add me to her next run (whenever it is). Quick thoughts! Am I being too picky? I have plenty of time to wait for another run and am relatively patient. :-)

 

 

Thanks,

Mike

If they are defected (in your eyes) and they are not the optimum size then I would return them.

Oh yea...did you ever post anything about them? I remember when you said they were incoming...

Personally, I could probably  live with it but if it is going to bother you everytime you look down, send them back and get on the list for the next run.

Yep. I'm waiting for my shipment confirmation and tracking. I have LWB in Cigar and Ravello, both on regular double leather sole, but for some reason I just couldn't warm up to the stock #8 LWB as it always looked too dressy to me. But the double water lock sole with the antique edging put that shoe just where I want it. I also really like how Leffot predicted November delivery, and here they are!

This was from the July preorder. 
We may be able to see some in the wild shortly...

Yep! Got my tracking on Saturday. They only have to come down about 2 hours! I'll be ready for them tomorrow.
