Anyone have any experience with shell that has a tiny hole like this? I've had the lasting holes on the back side of the boot peeking through before, which isn't a problem, but never in this area. I have to imagine, being so small, it's a non-issue?

I’m generally pretty tolerant when it comes to Alden’s imperfections but I think I draw the line on holes in shell, especially those that are visible when wearing. IMO, these go back.

Some lovely high instep accommodation provided by the modified last. At home again today, just keeping my feet warm.
