    Hi everyone. I posted in another shoe thread about my new Sutors that have started to crease after only 2-3 wears. From what I have heard, they are maybe too tight in the front or perhaps too long in general though they feel properly sized. Im not too sure what to do now, if I should keep them and just use my regular renovateur cream or if I should sell and find a wider shoe. Thoughts? They've always been kept in shoe trees.

    EDIT: Would getting the shoes slightly stretched in width help?

    i am not exactly sure what causes those creases. i have some shoes that are creased like that, and others that there is almost nary a crease. they all seem to fit me fine. personally, despite the fact that i dont like the creases, i would still rock the shoes. thats what i do with mine.

    its possible that even though the shoe "fits" over all, that the shape of the shoe v. the shape of your foot causes that to happen.

    you would be best to ask some of the local shoe experts. a lot of them hang out in the G& thread.

    rule of thumb: a bal is harder to fit than a derby. low volume of the forefoot is the reason in most cases.

    most people ignore this and struggle with the result. each to his own.
