beautiful boots, loose stitching...

I thought long and hard about getting these boots, mostly, as times are tight.
Anyway, I had a pair of wonderful Fabianos a long time ago. I hope these are similar in quality, comfort and durability.
Another reviewer mentioned stitching breaking, coming apart etc. I found a tiny bit of loose stitching and am going to use seam seal to seal and glue the stitching, I figure if nothing can catch on the slightly loose stitching that these should be okay for holding together. Really it is just a couple of stitches, but if it tears or breaks then there goes the seam....
Other than that concern, these are beautiful boots. I did follow the advice of others and replaced the insoles with green superfeet. Big improvement.
Still just wearing them around the house for break in. Planning on using sno seal for waterproofing and looking forward to hiking in them soon!
