Regis, I guess you can always cut the stitch off
But chances are nobody will see it if you're wearing a slightly wider hem than the model.
I saw some nice "crushed suede" (looks wrinkled) Lanvins last week at holt renfrew but I'm not sure if its offered in a high top.
Have you looked at Pierre hardy, cp tournament high, and buttero? Even sunsea at lncc stocks a blue suede sneaker with black sole.
