It isn't about right vs wrong. It is want it is.

Littleway and Blake stitching are essentially the same:



Make up your own mind after looking at this: Bad Vs Quality Dress Shoes Construction | Cementing Vs Blake Stitch Vs Goodyear Welt | Shoe Design

I'd want my nice new boots to be made correctly. All skate manufacturers tend to replace failed products. In many cases they appear to count on users loosing interest in skating or changing up parts before their product fails.

Time: 5-6 weeks. If you choose not to replace it and it separates 5 years from now we will still give you a new boots. "It's just extremely unlikely to have any effect, but it's you call".

After looking a lot of other skates, I learned this is a very common problem. But the truth is even if you removed all the stitching there it is still very unlikely to come apart. Many high end skates don't even have this stitching.

A few drops of glue, it not going anywhere. Not worth not skating for 6 weeks!

Exactly. Skate them. They won't fall apart. (Glad I got here late).
