Has happened to me before on new shoes to be precise. I recommend to polish them but not do a mirror shine until you've worn them a few times and can see where the shoe flexes, creases,etc. Then you know where you're safe to put a mirror shine, otherwise it cracks, starts breaking and requires extra work to pull it off and do it again.Thanks for the quick reply, guys.
You know, I didn't think of this of a possibility at all, but I think you might be right about the flexing point. I just went back, tried on the shoes again and noticed that the flexing point does indeed seem to be just around the broguing of the cap.
I'm not sure if this is good or bad, as the shoe seems to otherwise fit me fine. But the flexing point with all my other shoes has always been higher up, between the vamp and the broguing and not on the broguing itself...
The wax cracks where it flexes then everything will break because of that, it's not that your whole cap toe is getting flexed though.
