Hey guys, I just got a forum special with the non slip sole in whiskey. Great shoes. I've only worn them about three times, and the vamp has plenty of wrinkles in it. Not just micro wrinkles, but 'waves'. They have been leather conditioned and polished. They always have shoe trees in place. Is it the size? They are 11.5 F, and I thought I should have gone 11 F, as I'm usually 10.5G. Next time, I'm going to go 11F. Is it the sole? Does the non slip sole ensure that this ends up happening? Was it just not made to size properly? With excess leather on the vamp? I've seen older RM Williams that have this look. Mine arent old. I'm thinking that its probably a fit problem then - does that tend to happen if a shoe is too wide for the foot? I've read that you can strip off the polish and conditioner with leather stripper, then re condition and polish them and that will improve the condition. Any word? What about insoles? Do people use them for this sort of problem? I'd like to continue to get RM Williams shoes, but if they look like these after wearing them three or four times... http://img71.imageshack.us/my.php?image=001te0.jpg I was looking at getting a forum special in tan veal calf for my next boot. The reason I got the non slip sole was for work. Thanks for any help or advice guys!
