Advice on these flawed AE Dryden seconds

Gents,

Received these Drydens from Grapevinehill.com today. I figured they were seconds from the price, but was a little surprised at the obviousness of the flaws. There are three slight dings/creases just below the eyelets (see red squares in the pics). Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Do they get much worse with wear of the shoe? Grapevinehill doesn't have anymore in my size, so the best I could do would be to get a full refund. I like the shoe and have no problem keeping them, but how do flaws like these effect the integrity of the leather?

I am straining to see anything in your pics and can't. Try polishing, they are probably just scuffs and will go away.
