Closeouts come with defects?

Love Chacos and have been wearing them for years - but I received these and the ankle straps are unusually long. So much so that they drag on the ground and I can step on them.
This is an easy fix with a pair of scissors and a heavy duty sewing machine but I was just wondering if "closeouts" meant that there would be irregularities with products?
