Misaligned Sole Stitching - Problem?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I bought some factory second AE Park Avenues during the sale a couple of weeks ago, and the only flaw I can find is misaligned stitching on the sole near the heel on each shoe.  Is this a big deal in the long run?  

 

Or more accurately, is it worth $22 to get a pair with proper stitching? The Nordstrom sale is happening, and when I account for a $10 coupon they sent me and the return fee for AE, it's only that much more.

 

Thanks!

They are seconds. So you either lump them or buy full price shoes in future. Its unlikely these would fall apart if that is your concern and neither is this visible.

I guess my concern is specifically whether misaligned stitching affects the longevity of the shoes, and if it will persist once I (eventually) have them resoled.  I am able to return them and buy a full priced pair for a cost of only $22 more.
