Thanks Interlocking, I doesn't bother me too much, the only think I'm concerned about is will this be the start of a bigger problem? For instance, will the sliced leather start peeling off or away? Will the slice open up further? And the slice is close to the shoe lace eyelet, will the hole tear?
Fit question: I was measured as a 9.5D on the Brannock and these are a 9D. They feel really good right now, fit-wise. I can feel the slightest bit of pressure at the widest part of my foot, but nothing uncomfortable. My question is, with this leather, will stretching occur to the extent that the the uppers will eventually be close to touching each other at the laces? This, I would perceive as undesirable.
I'm a little afraid right now that they fit and I'm gonna have to keep them...
Thanks for any thoughts.
