Hi ladies! Has this ever happened to anyone? I recently bought a pair of black suede Declics from Ebay and I noticed that the inside of the heel is a little darker on the edges. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Is this from the black dye on the suede? The sole on the bottom and middle portion of the shoes are perfect and this darkening only happens on the heel part. Thank you!!

I can't say I've seen this before.. Were the shoes originally black? Or did the previous owner dye them??

yeah that's happened to my Decolzep which is an older style. I think it has to do with the black leather underneath making a color transfer through the red sole.

it's never happened to my newer shoes though. Either way, it doesn't affect the integrity of the shoes. Just make sure you don't store your shoes in a too warm spot (eg. next to radiator).
