    In time as they age they will darken and this may become less noticeable. If it was me I'd keep 'em, or you could always eBay them to a new home.

    they didnt match the leather as well as they did on the right shoe. the grain may also be running in opposite directions of one another. this is quite common though. here are my C&J Darltons: [​IMG]

    Thanks! The makeup is different, yet understated for a saddle and on clearance an easy purchase. Sorry if I posted too many pics.

    In some cases, including this one, I feel the mismatch adds to the look.

    the saddle is a great selling point for me. Its an awesome detail that you would not expect. Your pics/boots look great. Keep them coming! btw, i called the shoe mart and they said I havent been receiving emails because I am signed up for too many sizes. Im signed up for 11D, 11.5C, 11.5D, 12C, 12D. Apparently they cant send too many out at one time because the messages get mangled [​IMG]

    Are the LHS the 9E? What size are the monk boots? When I saw those LHS my first thought was "wow, I better call shoemart quick!" I really need wait until next year before I buy any more shoes.
