    Would have liked to make a Carmina p0rn post but have to ask advice instead.

    I ordered these direct and noticed this last night. I've only tried them on two or three times, haven't worn them out yet. Is this something that happened during manufacturing or could me trying the shoes on have done this? Trying to decide if I should exchange them. I've had a tight fit before with bals but never seen that stitch rip through the leather like that.

    If it's possible for you to get an exchange and it's not a hassle, I would do it. However, I think it's such a small detail that if it's too hard to get an exchange, I would just keep them.

    I've personally never experienced anything like this with my calf balmoral Carminas though.

    What kind of "string issues" did you face if you don't mind me asking? I am considering getting a pair for myself. Thanks
