Well then, is that common on CXL for certain finishes to be like that? Will it get worse? I can live with it, but if it gets worse I'd be a little annoyed. This is the 2nd one I've exchanged so far...
Nick at Horween recommended Venetian shoe cream. You can use Saphir but it's moreexpensive. I don't think it works any better at least for CXL.
