    Keep them, you could end up with a worse pair. I have a couple pairs like that and no issue.

    My first pair were like this. They're now in their 5th year of use. I have recrafted them since, but not any sooner than my shoes that were properly stitched in the channel.

    Which isn't to say I haven't rejected in store or returned deliveries of shoes that came like that. In my mind, the company is sure to have a model for sale without this defect, and I'd rather pay the same amount for one without than one with. Maybe a silly principle, but if my cost of exchange (including time spent) is less than the value of the time spent thinking about my off-channel stitched sole, I exchange it. Which is to say the majority of the time I exchange it.

    But I'm looney. So take that into consideration. [​IMG]

    Bought my first pair of quality shoes. I went ahead and got a pair of Allen edmonds strand in the colour oxblood. Right now I'm trying to adjust the leather to my feet. Here are some pictures of it.

    If these are seconds, I'd be jumping for joy that this is the defect. If these are "firsts", I wouldn't bother returning them.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll wait for the Shoe Bank to have a bourbon or walnut with dainite in 11E in stock.

    Nice start!. You'll be hooked now. Just remember, the first step is admitting you have a problem.

    I also don't find the Dalton to be narrow, but going from E to EEE in this boot is a very big difference (I've tried). E was really tight around the instep of my foot and would get painful while I was completely swimming around in EEE.

    If you're going to post shoe pictures here, you have to follow the rules. The first shot requires a beverage (preferably coffee) in the picture. The second picture has to casually include your watch, in an inconspicuous manner.

    I love those shoes. That is the next purchase for me. I want them with Dainite soles.
