So I am not too impressed now. This shoe is from their "Handcrafted in Italy" line, which I've thought was a little higher in quality. Unfortunately the store I bought this shoe from went into closure, otherwise I would have gone back to them for some recourse. The shoe is about 2 years old, rotated very often and I've used the shoe trees and creams. The part where the shoe is discoloring is where my foot flexes. I've already emailed J&M about this, but I highly doubt anything will happen. Is this shoe garbage/scraped now, or can my local shoe repair guy perhaps dye the leather so this discoloring goes away and it is all one color? I've already tried using 2 high quality neutral color shoe creams, including a brown color shoe cream. It is as soon as I wear them and I walk/flex my foot, the color flakes off.
