I'm ready to embrace them. I wasn't expecting how quick they'd appear, and it got me worried that I could end up wearing through the uppers.They look normal. Embrace the scuffs and scratches!
CXL is known to scratch very easily. It seems to be a characteristic that people like as it ages quickly and shows patina. Sounds like that wasn’t what you were looking for which I’m sure is disappointing but that “damage” all looks very normal.
never read CXL to be scratch resistant. quite the opposite as it ages quickly.
I knew people said it aged quickly, but I didn't know it was this tender. I'll get over it I'm pretty sure. It's my first CXL item.Expecting CXL not to scratch is like expecting snow not to melt in hell. If you look at CXL funny it will scratch.
I guess I expected it to be less different than the other cowhide boots I have than they actually are.
