    I am sorry, I don't see the problem. Maybe I am just missing it.

    I am not sure if that's a problem too. It just looks to me that the stitching between the two pieces is pulling away from each other.

    I see it now.
    It is hard to judge without seeing in person.
    If the stitching is tight, I would not worry.
    You could email Betty a pic and ask her opinion.
    You should crop a version of the pic to point it out.

    If you are talking about that stich that is in the corner...All of my shoes do that. Right or wrong, I've never had an issue.

    Edit
    In the corner, like this?

    Oh. Now I see! I think those 3 large, heavy duty stitches hold the peices together. I would email bkotsko's pic to Carmina.

    I have a pair, to be honest I don't like them that much, they look crude compared with my rain lasted oxfords. Maybe I just don't like loafers.

    By crude, do you mean the shape is more rounded? I just feel like a need a pair of penny for the summer.
