That's too bad, but good on you for not worrying about it.
Personally, I would rather all my welted shoes be in the 40% that don't have this going on. I would also expect more prsetigious shoes to behave better here.
My father, had roughly a dozen well worn Dacks and Church shoes when he retired a decade ago and only one had a little of this going on!
It happens but maybe moreso now than ever (although it shouldn't)
