Anyone have wrinkles like this on their shell?

Not super noticeable but kind of bugs me a bit. Any way to get it out? Exactly the same on the other toe too.

The cap toe is glued down to the lining. Looks like the glue might be uneven (?)

around 1:30 in this video you can see part of the process

I have a similar, but not as pronounced line like that on my alden shell with punched cap toe. I always assumed it was just the edge of the bonding or whatever.

I guess it’s good if people don’t even see it. I would have assumed a wrinkle or glue like caffed said except it’s the exact same spot and shape on the other toe too.

Bourbon Horsebutt (Left, and unsure if workshoe) vs Bourbon Workshoe Horsebutt (Right)... there's an obvious color difference, but does anyone know the actual difference between the two? Viberg's site said that the shell portion of the left boot is still intact as well.

Oh man I was looking at the WRONG thing I am sorry! Isn't that a vein? Can you get veins in shell? Genuinely I don't know sorry.

This is the one review I've been waiting for. Really wish I had pulled the trigger on these. If anyone ordered a 9 and doesn't like them DM me though....

Have you tried using a spoon and some VSC? I would think that would smooth it down a bit more.
Thanks, I’ll probably try this after some wear if it doesn’t go away by itself.
