Should I keep or return these Higgins Mill boots?

I got these Allen Edmonds Factory seconds Higgins Mill boots for $199.00 plus tax. As you can see there is a 'damaged' stitch and loose grain on the left boot. The right boot is fine though, what do you folks recommend, keep or return?
Thanks a bunch!

I wouldn't send them back because of the stitch.

However - in terms of the grain I think I would decide based on how different it looks from its right sided buddy. If they look vastly different I would consider a return.

Lock stitch means it's just cosmetic.

The variations are more likely being CXL. Just depends if it bothers you; remember they're a more casual boot that will crease as soon as you wear them.

You're going to get variations when you start wearing them. It's rare that both shoes/boots will crease the same anyway. I don't think either is reason to send back. But, as others said - if it bothers you, then send them back. Otherwise, it will always bother you and you'll stop wearing them.

Thank you guys, you are the best!, I am going to wear them on carpet tonight and see if the variations aren't too much. I am a fan (crazy fan) of AE boots and wear them year round : ). Since almost everyone likes Higgins mill boots, I am inclined to keep them.
