As you mentioned a few times, the issue will be covered. I would however just send a pic of the issue and ask if the tear can get any worse overtime. With regards to the shoe bag issue you have, they do that with all of their shoes. My thought is they have one covered and one not covered for affect.
Im assuming you have other pairs on that same last in the same size, but it looks like they are too big for you. Going down a width may be best… but thats just my two cents. Enjoy them, they look great!
