    I think he's referring to the large gash on the right shoe.

    No. The deep creasing (what looks like scratches) on the front of the left (right in the photo) shoe.

    I had a pair of C&J Audley which had this problem. I dropped my bed(!) on them when I moved recently.

    Meh. It's not that big of a deal. Not sure what price you got them for but I'm guessing they're probably worth keeping.

    Badsha,

    G & G has two blue colors? Midnight Blue Antique and Navy? Which ones are these? My understanding is the Navy is darker shade of blue? Can any of owners confirm this? By the way that looks pretty bad i have yet to receive any of shoes from my order and I have ordered gables too.

    On it.


    40% off + stupid CA tax.


    Yes I believe they are 2 colors. These are Midnight Blue. Navy i would assume is darker.

    The website is misleading. They look very dark and was looking forward to Navy. I think it will darken over time anyway. Imagine them in Navy Suede :inlove:

    I would confirm, but it looks like Midnight blue is the darker one...

    Here is the other pair, which is intact. Walkton DG70 Smart Round. Shoes are a bit darker in person.
