Right, the gap bothers me too. When I was trying on different models though, the SA said that it's not uncommon for there to be a slight gap in the heel. I wanted to believe him; his own Strands had a gap too. FWIW, the other Van Ness does not have the same problem. But what about the lacing? Could you wear your Strands like that and not be concerned that the fit might be off?
