Hi there, I recently picked up a couple pairs of Prada Spazzolato Derbies. I've never had a shoe with this type of leather and while I love the shine, much like with patent, you notice the toe crease(s) even more. Below is the pair I've been wearing the most. I do have a pretty good rotation of 4 pairs of shoes so these only get worn about twice a week, I bought them just after Christmas for half price but you can see the large creases at the toe break. I use shoe trees. Just wondering if anyone has advice for minimizing this effect once it's already happened; if that can't be done I guess i'm just looking for more tips in prevention for future pairs. I know cobblers generally say this is unfixable but i'm just wondering if anyones had any success stories. I know creases are unavoidable, I just don't want them to be so pronounced. Do they get more subtle once the leather softens?
