Recently noticed this on my 4 month old Indy Boots. They have commando soles and this cavity goes probably a little less then 1/8" deep.



I dont know if I just never noticed or I just got it... Should I let it go or try to fix it?

It all seems like too much trouble for me. I'd just let it go.

Wood filer - Good idea.

I'd just let it go. Soles are replaceable anyways. The filler does seem like a good idea though, if you're really anal.

Think about what happens as a result of a tooth cavity and ask yourself, should I do something about this?

super glue + dab of black polish? Unless it has been caused by a colony of boring insects, I wouldn't sweat it too much.

I would let it go. But those aren't commando soles, are they?

They are - you just cant see at this angle. I love the way Alden did this on Indys - you can't see them from the side at all.
