Just because the stitches are visible does not mean the soles are done. There are a few reasons for this. 1. They are stitched with a lock stitch. That means each stitch is independent of itself. Just because you see worn stitching does not mean the sole stitching will unravel further around the welt. 2. "G's" are manufactured with a hidden stitch.
