I definitely understand your frustration. I've had a few shoes that took AE multiple attempts to get right. (And all of those issues were more sever and/or structural in nature.) The great(est) thing about AE is their customer service. So, if you are having second thoughts, I say send them back. First, though I would email this picture to, and speak with someone, in CAC. If this is your 3rd attempt at a satisfactory pair, then I would either a) keep them but ask for seconds pricing or b) have them send you a 4th pair, but inquire about a discount or gift card for future purchase for your trouble AND request someone look over the shoes before they are shipped out.
