Caring for Spazzolato Leather Shoes (Creases, Wrinkles) specifically Prada

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?
Thanks gentlemen

if you get creases on your shoes, you are walking too much!

p.s., leather will always crease at the bending point and the effect will be more pronounced with lacquered or corrected grain leathers.
