Yep. Probably just a trick of the light. They are really handsome shoes.probably a flaw magnified due to close up picture. I don’t feel as though these shoes have excessively creased, or even really creased at all. Also the right shoe (left in the picture as my feet are crossed) I am sort of pointing my toe up and maybe that increases the view of the crease?
These were the shoes after my weekend shoe shine for them. I don’t notice any abnormal creasing.
