My Clevs exhibited something similar between the uppers and sole, but to a much greater degree. So much so, that I could stick a piece of paper between them. That was just one of many problems.A little. This was before I first polished them - there was a lovely shine on the toes, and they looked generally great, but not sure how much time went into polishing before they were sent to me.
Yes, hopefully these spots could also be touched up. There are other stylistic things that weren't quite carried through - I'd asked for a fiddle waist, and it's ended up as something less sharp and sculpted than I would have liked, etc.
I suppose if this were low-end ready to wear, and you bought them at a significant discount, I would say just wear them. But the whole point of getting bespoke is so you can get some best-in-class item.
I would just ask the company to remake the shoes. If, by chance, they offer you a discount, my advice is to still ask for the remake. In my experience, if the shoes don't bring you any joy, and you already have some other shoes you love, the first pair will never get worn.
