I indeed have paid less than retail, but buying factory seconds while they are advertised as brand new non-seconds does not feel right to me and I would not have bid this high if I knew they were seconds. But before I jump to conclusions I'll ask the seller what the R means, it might be something else.That's not true since he sells seconds but also samples and new in box shoes.
Can you add a picture of the soles?
Just received the "102494 - GOLD MUSEUM CALF" from Ebay (which is in the GMTO list now) and wondered what the R stamp on the insole means. The shoes were advertised as new with box but the R stamp made me wonder if they aren't rejects. Anyone ever seen Meermin shoes with the R stamp inside?
Yep, I just won one of his auctions and when I look at the bid history I see the same pattern.

@Afinepairofshoes: Who makes your own brand of shoes?
corderra is correct: F is standard width in Grenson shoes
Where will the shoes be sent from? US or EU?
That is what I thought too. So this means the lining has to come off partially to replace the eyelet and then restitched again. Wonder if it's worth the effort.
No one is going to notice but I wondered if it can have a negative impact on the lacing hole since it is not protected by a metal eyelet anymore. Can it tear for instance?
