The most important consideration is how you feel about your shoes. It appeared at first that you were ready to live with shoe as is, but when you put it under the perfect scrutiny of the forum, you decided to return it. If you do not like your shoes regardless of price paid, do return them and do not wait for others to validate that decision. What you see as a flaw can be no big deal to another guy.
