A Matter of Perfection

I have a sock dilemma. I know, not something you hear someone utter everyday, but it's true. I've been knitting a pair of self-striping socks and I began the heel flap just after a new color started. The end result is one stripe across the top of the foot. I finished that first sock thinking that it wouldn't bother me and that it would look fine but the more I look at it, the more it looks like a mistake. So here is my dilemma - do I knit the second sock with that same lone stripe across the foot so that the socks are an imperfect match? Or do I fix the second sock and rip out part of the first sock? I need to decide on the next row.

Note the dark stripe between the teal and green.
