I can't argue if you're satisfied, but I thought the point was that you (understandably, IMO) wanted the credit applied to the shoes you bought recently. Otherwise, they just let you use the credit for another pair of shoes.
Alden recognizes that they sometimes create second quality shoes, and they sell them as such at a reduced price (or they sell them as firsts anyway). Some shoes are so bad that people here have been told their pair in a pre-order was ruined, or something to that effect.Surely sometimes this sort of thing will occur during a restoration as well.

I once purchased (and returned) a pair of Marlows directly from RL that had this same issue. So, in this case, but also in general, I think NIB doesn't necessarily mean without possible cosmetic imperfections, and there is some responsibility on the buyer's part to inspect pictures closely. By your own admission, you thought the picture he provided -- which clearly shows the issue, if you look closely enough -- "looked ok, so [you] didn't pay attention to it much." When...
