I'm sorry, I have to ask...do slight imperfections on your CLs bother you??? I ask because I noticed on my new wedges, the fabric on one shoe is cut a little different then the other. Not by much...a little less than a quarter inch but it makes it look like I have more toe clevage on one foot. This makes like 4 pairs of my CLs that have small imperfections. My red patent pumps have bubbly leather on one side, my nude simples had a dark tint to them, my patent/cork bruges have bubbly cork, and now my dear wedges. Not enough of a thing to return them, but just enough to annoy me a little. I understand and appreciate that they are hand made, but I also understand and appreciate my $700! LOL!!!
