    Is this shoe welt a problem?

    These Cole haan came in the mail with this welt stitching outside of the welt channel on the outside of the sole. Otherwise they are fine. Is this a no go (i.e. will these fall apart or cause some other chaos faster because of this) or are they fine to keep?

    jwest, seeing that would tell me that the shoe stitching is probably cosmetic and the sole is likely glued as opposed to welted.

        I recent purchased Air Coltons, and I can guarantee you they are glued. Your sole look similar, so I will venture to agree with bruschetta.

          The outsole is still glued even on a GY welted shoe. That's why your shoe doesn't fall apart even when you wear away the visible stitching on the sole.
