LOL!
My son, bless his heart, used to wear a T shirt, at his Quaker boarding school where the Cafeteria served (probably still does) vegan cuisine, saying People for Eating Tasty Animals. Chip off the ol’ Block!

I'd be willing to wager a quarter pounder with cheese that regardless of the number of animals, it's not "the global leather industry" that's slaughtering them; rather, that whole "food" thing that they seem to be made up of is the root cause of their tragic yet necessary demise.

Do you get it? Do you get the joke about my wager now? :hide:
I can't seem to remember a time where I killed an animal so I could eat a pair of shoes.
Non-AE content for Wingtip Wednesday (they're the only wingtips I have...):

Ok, so I hate to be that guy, but I want to ask what you all think about the pair of HMs I received. I understand these are boots, and if they were seconds I’d be cool with this, but what do you all think?

Here is the vamp of the left boot:

Here is the toe/vamp of the right:

There are other things too like this on the left boot:

What do you all think I should do?Am I wrong in asking for seconds pricing here?

You're not wrong, those flaws are not that bad, but boots with those flaws can't fairly be called first quality, either.

Not wrong. I prefer to put my own patina on, unless someone else is paying for it.

They are not firsts, even if sold as firsts. But they are boots, so...... If it were me, I'd certainly make the call to see if I could get seconds pricing on them.

That is a reasonable request. If I was in AE I would appreciate any customer that got that and asked nicely for seconds pricing. I have had interactions with customers that had issues with product that they received and by their reaction you would have thought that I personally ran over their foot with a car and they would need their foot amputated.

I called the cs line, and after seeing the pics they offered 20% off. I had actually immediately spoke with Raul in Charleston, and he is going to get a replacement.

Am I the only one who would have kept them?
Considering that they’re made of CXL, won’t they look like that by the second time you wear them anyway?
I would have. My CXL Indy boots got marks like that all over after i had worn them twice.
