Returned first pair awaiting delivery of second pair. Reason for return: Leather will always have imperfections, this is known. However, to use a piece of leather with an imperfection 1 1/2" diameter right on the most obvious part of the front, upper part of shoe is ridiculous since everyone immediately sees this part of shoe. These are handmade shoes! Why therefore, did it get through the net and on to the market?
Yes there is an argument that imperfections in the leather allow everyone to know the shoes are real leather. But I don't want to start out with shoes looking well........ lets say distressed!
Wondering why delay in Amazon posting back a replacement. They have acknowledged receipt of returned pair in exactly same condition as received and in fact refunded item. But as yet not followed instruction to send a same replacement.
