I know what you mean. It's tough to see in the image but the toebox is twice as shiny as the rest of the upper. I worked hard on the transition between mirror shine and standard shine. It's easy to get a real noticeable line where the mirror hits the non-mirror. For once, I transitioned it fairly well. However, when the transition is more abrupt, it doesn't look right either. Like these, I needed another thin coat of wax on that transition point.
