Any suggestions? I called STP and they offered me a full refund or a $50 credit if I wanted to keep them. Their customer service has been awesome and has made me a life long customer of theirs. I don't want to be "that guy" who tries to get something for free but I really want to keep these boots(they don't have any more in stock in my size). How much would a good cobbler charge to fix it and would 'restitching' it cause any more visual damage?
Take them to a cobbler and ask them their thoughts as to a fix and what it might cost. Me I'd be returning them.
