    Generally I tie the shoe laces quite tight, but it leaves scratch marks on the shoe tongue during normal walking,
    it seems that general buffing by cloths and brush do not make them go away.

    So what will you guys do to them? polishing them by wax and cream? or just leave it be as no one will notice that part?

    Are those the Context tankers? Great pant/shoe combo.

    すごい靴どよ!

    本当にどんなように磨くているの? (ごめん、日本語を今練習していないからあまり書けない)

    And here's the pair of 2146s that showed up from ebay (black shell):

    For some reason the upper on the black pair is pulled a bit to the side on the right shoe. When I'm standing above them I can completely see the welt on the inside of the right shoe but the outside welt is covered up. Obviously an artifact of wear, but I've no clue how you could make that happen.

    Interestingly compared to the color 8 pair the cap toe on the black is about a centimeter shorter, and the medallion is accordingly pushed further over the toe than on the color 8 pair, which you can see a bit from the pics:

    Still happy though. Now I have to stop buying shoes before my fiancee gets annoyed at me dumping money on things I don't really need.
