  That's the thing, that isn't related to the way the shoe is welted. It's how the welt is stitched to the sole of the shoe. While they may have split, the stitching won't let the sole come off completely. The gap may widen, but the sole shouldn't separate any further than the stitching will allow. In theory at least.
    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.
  Indeed, good price though, imo.
  Checked again just now. All is well again.
Looks like the website is down?
3 eyelet dark brown suede PTB's for $210
  Carmina make some on a few lasts (Simpson, Soller, Rain), C&J make some on a couple of different lasts (348, 325? I think.). Vass on the F or U would be nice too.
  I've done both shirts and pants via measurements. Pretty decent turn around time for both. Nice construction for the price on the cheaper fabrics, plus being able to ask for whatever you want in regards to customisation is nice.
    Nevermind, misread entirely.
