I don't think any amount of cream is going to make that go away.

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...

It won't get worse.
I've got a pair of natural CXL with similar wrinkliness in a not too obvious spot so it doesn't bug me.

Went to Culwell & Son in Dallas today just to browse. Saw the Indys on the shelf and decided to try them on. First pair they brought out fit like I glove so I left with them. Very excited to break these bad boys in; admittedly I don't appreciate them very much in their new state but all the photos I've seen of them worn for a while look awesome.

I like them too. I have them. The Tremont is used sparingly.

The natural sole from Leffot's is a nice change

. Today I actually took my new BFF's outside for a walk. Did I say I live in Minnesota. OMG! Any thoughts on heel and toe taps. Either or both. Plastic vs. metal. Much appreciated. Here's a pic of the poor little dears.

I also have CXL and navy suede chukkas... I am wavering on both of the middle chukkas. I may send back/sell one or both of them and go for a color 8 chukka at some point.
