OK! which word didn't you understand -- AE or seconds. Why do you think they call them seconds.

A few coats of the same colored wax over a period of time should fill it in fairly good. I would put a good liberal coat on that area -- give it 20-30 min. to haze over good --then wipe / brush / and buff. Repeat evey couple days, for a few coats. Doesn't do any good to do it several times on same day, as the solvent in the wax will loosen up the previous coat. It would also be a good idea to put a couple coats on the other shoe's cap to keep the color even.

I think Kuro meant if the toe cap "flaw" is only cosmetic. It looks like cracked dried out leather. But if the surface is smooth, then it's purely cosmetic.

Some AE seconds have uneven toe caps, the worst of the bunch imo

It looked cosmetic to me, just the way the leather turned out when tanned.
