    Our of curiosity, what precisely is the Prestige Collection? Do they denote a different caliber of manufacture, or materials, or style, or is it just a branding?

    Most likely, the shoes were too long for the person wearing them and so they creased in the wrong place.

    maybe, but it's the second time I've seen a similar model of Barker Blacks with creasing in the same spot.

    Yup I tried 2 pairs of the Archdale in different sizes and they both creased that way. Was a deal breaker for me.
