I have just purchased my second pair of C&J shell cordovan Harlech boots and noticed some discolouration lines on the cordovan. Can anyone help me understand what causes this and if it’s a fault with the tanning/finishing. It doesn’t bother me too much but wanted to get an idea before I wear them.

thanks
