The defect is so minor that it would kill me to return them at nearly half price, but I don't want to spend money on a boot I don't love. I'm going to sit with them a bit longer to try to open up to the last. Here's a photo of the defect, which is not visible when they are on.
And a few more of the boot. Accurate color in all but the last picture.

Those look FANTASTIC in snuff. I understand your hesitancy has nothing to do with the "defect", but rather the last itself. If its a fit issue, I'd find it tough to hold onto as well. But from my view, they look flat out amazing! Hope you can get the fit issue solved. If not, and they are my size, let me know before you return them
