    Now that they are 'set' you wont be able to change the way they have formed. Even when brand new it's hard to get them exactly perfect. The mechanics of how you walk and how one foot differs from the other dictates how the ripples will form. I also feel that the direction of the grain plays a roll...

    I bought #8 PTB's. A cursory glance revealed no obvious flaws. However, I later discovered a rather large patch on the inside of one where the finish is way-off. It's rather annoying, but certainly not visible from a normal perspective when wearing.

    This recent discussion on creasing is what prompted me to post, though. For some reason, my PTB's have some rather unsightly thin creases - not the typical large shell rolls I'm accustomed to. I only have a slight suspicion it's because it's a "second", when more likely I'm denying the fact I'm responsible from my walking style or improper sizing.

    Can you post a pic of the thin creasing?

    That's what I thought it might look like. Saw that recently in this pic and am dissuaded by it. Do you think it could have something to do with the lining creasing inside the shoe?

    In my experience, lined shoes crease thinner. My chukkas (fully lined) did that, whereas my unlined models didn't.

    I had this and the chromexcel jumper boots. Wanted to sell one as they were a bit redundant, and I ended up selling the jumper boots because I love this chukka model so much. It's one of my favorite pairs. I'm even considering selling my cigar chukkas because I would rather wear this shoe more often than not.
