Extra stitching holes in my new boots. Return worthy?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
See the photo. There are two extra holes in my new Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots that I just received in the mail. I'm not sure if this is return-worthy. What do you think? Too nitpicky?

The picture above shows the inside stitching of the right shoe. There's also one unfilled hole on the outside stitching on the other shoe.

Pretty sloppy - I wouldn't be best pleased.

I agree, but it seems to be the norm with mass produced boots. In SW&D (yes, I knew, it's another country and they do things differently there...), there seems to be a general acceptance of extra thread holes in boots. I think it's more than likely that the OP will find the same in any replacement sent anyway.

Sloppy but not worth the hassle.

I don't believe they are mass produced. I believe the stitching is done by hand (based on a video of the Wolverine factory). They aren't cheap boots - they cost $340.

Part of me thinks: "They're hand-stitched, and this is just a quirk"
and the other part thinks: "This is sloppy, and will bother me in the future"

Take them back if you want. It's not like they are special one of a kind MTO. Just get another pair of it bothers you.

Definitely wouldn't stand for it. Just take them back and get them replaced, nbd.

I'd return them.

I've had to return two pairs of C&J boots recently due to poor finishing - deep cuts marks in the leather. I stressed to the SA to please check them before sending out. But the second pair were even worse. Point is, you pay £ or $ and should get what you pay for.

P*** off at the moment.

I decided to exchange them. Revolve is being cool about it, so I figure I'll get boots free of defects
