    Looks antique on mine. It looks a bit transparent.

    I'm a little late to the discussion, but for scale here is a closeup I posted a few months ago of a double soled cigar LWB next to a single flex color 8 PTB:

    Is it exacerbated in the flash or does it look that way in natural light? Some of my #8s have weird stuff but it is really only visible in direct sunlight or from a flash, otherwise they are invisible and therefore I dont mind but if that was not the case particularly for shoes I would wear with suits in meetings I might be inclined to try to have it resolved in some way.

    Side note, someone should scoop these:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Alden-...ide-Size-9E-/251406746987?hash=item3a8902856b

    I would be awaiting the tracking number if they were my size
