Any chance that the people getting the weird creases have shoes that are too big ?
I bought the Breds in a 12 because that's how all of my Highs fit, but in the lows a 12 was too big and I got the same creases. I went for an 11.5 in the white/greys and have normal to no creasing issues. Still waiting to find the Royals for below $100.
Seems that JB cut a lot of corners on these with the quality but I still am a big fan. The lows have been a "decent" consolation prize after missing out on the High versions and refusing to pay the current prices.
