I got these a couple weeks ago and the second time wearing them got caught in the rain. Luckily, it wasn't a downpour but after getting indoors noticed these dot like marks. I didn't touch them and let then dry with the shoe trees inserted thinking after a day or so they'd go away. A week after the rain and they are still like this. I am not sure if this is due in part because of the rain or something else. I have searched on here and Ask Andy with no real luck. Also, I noticed these small scratches around the lace holes on one shoe.
