1+ for Dainite. They may have to lower the heel base a bit for proper balance. That depends on the thickness of the original top-lift.
Always best to give them a chance before going for the throat. Glad it worked out.

Compare two pieces of outdoor furniture. One cedar the other varnished or plastic. Observe them after a rainstorm. Which dries faster? Why? Case closed.

That's defiantly not from normal wear nor, did it happen by itself. My guess is that you caught it on something (perhaps not realizing). Further evidence of this can be seen by looking at the sole. It's chipped directly below the damaged vamp.
