Here is the photographic evidence. The stitching seems to end short, is frayed, and veers off onto the side of the boot. The other boot isnt quite as bad but has similar fraying/veering. Acceptable or not?

obviously hard to describe without pics, but was wondering if these irregularities are normal or if i should return them for another pair. they are of course barely noticeable to anyone not looking for it but very noticeable to me.
I am in the market for a dark brown oxford.
I am debating between these two.
What the advantages/disadvantages of the commando sole.
I am looking for a shoe that is versatile enough to wear with dress pants, chinos, and denim.
