It takes some time and miles for the dimples to show. Over time, it will conform to you--or you to it! I put in over 1K miles on mine and then went back to my favorite plastic base saddle--Regal. Despite endless adjustments, retensionings, and some mild swearing, I could never quite get the tilt right, and it felt better on the hoods than in the drops, etc. Just my quirk. Most people seem to find them very comfy. Maybe I should have tried a slightly narrower Pro model.
A friend has been on his Brooks for, are you ready, 18 years. Its been laced and re-laced and has a surface that looks like last summer's roadkill. He loves it. So, hang in there and give it a long chance. You'll have to earn your cute little dimples. Don't forget Proofide or something similar for leather treatment.
