    Hi dear member,

    I purchased my first shell cordovan Alden Indy, and after receiving them i realized few bubbles and discretion on the left boot, also little stitch off. As I read in many articles, one of the characteristic of shell cordovan is; it should roll smoothly, not wrinkled crease. Regardless of stitch my most concern is, i don't want to ended up with abnormal creasing on this boots.
    I asked in other forum and I got mix feeling and answers, therefore i like to know you opnion, since these bubbles are in the flex point an area with relatively high stress.
    I've never encountered loose grain before, so if it's going to disappear into standard creasing or not, and ultimately should I keep this boots or not? Thanks for responding!
