I should, but would hate to spend extra time in de-threading & sewing. I'd want to put them on some happy feet right away. Since lane stitch is done completely from one side on leather, I can't see where beading prior to assembly would make a difference. Figure you can wear through mocs pretty quickly & the second pair might be ready about the time I make a hole.
