    Dainite soles crack? Or make the leather upper crack? I never knew.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    Neither, the "flaw" that causes them to be seconds looks like precursors to possible cracking in the leather on the upper. It's faint--noticeable, but faint--so i'm not terribly worried. Like I said, a guy could easily spend a lot more money on "first quality" shoes that don't last as long, aren't resolable, are of dubious quality, etc.

    It's also not like I'm wearing them daily (or even weekly, if I'm honest). They'll just get a lookin-at every shine day and a quick dab of cream or renovateur just to keep them nourished and do as much to prolong life as possible. I don't foresee any issues for many years--it takes a decent cowhide upper easily a decade of ZERO care to really get cracked and gross.

    I'd post if only a) I did shine my shoes and b) I wouldn't be ashamed to have my shoes on the same thread as yours.
