The leather had some funky discolouration going on, some loose threads and the leather piece that was sewn to the vibram sole was all banged up. The box had a tear in it and the soles were dirty, so I suspect that someone else had tried it before me.
Also, the sizing was weird, Amazon stated that size 8 was a 41 but on the box it was a 41.5.
I sent requested to get sent back and as usual, Amazon's customer service was excellent, and they made the process a easy and fuss free one.
I exchanged it for a half a size down and it now fits perfect. The boots came in a totally different box, I guess its the new lot of production because the previously mentioned leather pieces were looking much better. It had its edge bevelled and it was without kinks and a weird coat like the previous ones. The boots were also very comfortable the moment I put it on which is great as breaking into them will be a much less painful experience.
Overall, I must say I am very impressed with the boots that I have now as well as Amazon's AMAZING customer service.
EDIT: After wearing it several times, I found out that the leather on the boots though it looked amazing, it was somewhat inconsistent. One side was stiffer than the other, making the two boots feel as if it they were of different sizes. The creases set in differently as well which kinda bothered me but I can live with that. The tongue of the boot for the soft side does not stay in the middle, it starts to shift to the left which is really irritating.
We'll see how they do long term.
The leather itself is very nice and smooth - its stiff to start, but begins to mold over time. Within about two weeks of wear the shoe fit great - its been a few months now and the shoe fits *perfectly*. I could walk all day long in it without a problem.
I'm a 10D, and tried the 9.5, but found it too tight along the width and too close on the toe box. 9.5EE might have been fine, but I decided to go with a 10D instead to give myself some toe room. I wear thick wigwam socks, and they fit very nice and snug.
The shoes are great in all weather - NYC snowdays are easy, and the leather is more than water resistant enough to keep my feet nice and dry. The leather does darken as you take care of it - I used coconut oil to condition at first, but didn't like just how much darker it made the boots. I used Lexol cleaner to bring the boots back to neutral and clear off the salt/snow damage, and followed up with Lexol conditioner. THe boots still darkened, but look much nicer overall and have a better tone and patina to them. Scratches buff out easily with a cloth, a brush, or your finger.
Note: Pictures are after cleaner, conditioned they are much darker and nicer
