You say handwelted so I assume these are Linea Maestro shoes? There was a huge batch of classic collection shoes where all the soles split, but this was middle of last year, if I remember right. I don't think how the soles are stitched to the welt on the LM shoes, but they could well be machine stitched. If it's bothering you, and you can't get in touch with Meermin, go have a chat to a local cobbler.
