Do these shoes fit properly?

    I have a pair of Cole Haan Cap toes. Both shoes have creases above the cap toe line. I hope that makes sense. Mine aren't a matter of not fitting. I think I am just too rough on shoes.

    I have a similar question about fit with a pair of Alden's I recently purchased. After wearing them for a couple weeks, usually 4 days on, 4 days off, the left one has a funny crease. Is this indicative of a bad fit or just how this leather is going to crease?

    No, I do not make it a habit to wear these jeans with them.

    Poor choice to place the post in an old, limited thread.

    No, that's not how leather should crease. It's almost definitely due to fit and/or motion. For example, the instep looks high.

    Thank you for the reply. What do you mean by motion? I understand the possibility of poor fit (the right side fits perfectly, the left feel a tad big, though not when purchased). I've heard that once it begins creasing like this, you can't really change it either.

    Leather is going to crease as it does. Each shoe will most likely not crease symetrically to the other so not to worry.

    Standing on your toes often, for example, as when reading to grab something from a shelf.

    Ah, that's probably it. At work, I often sit with my toes bent on the ground. Thanks for the insight.
