Agh not helping! I'll pretend what you really wrote was "from my experience I think those are Meermins rebranded in China to look like real Skyes"

Thanks. Though I probably would have been fine with subs at that price, I'll inflate my dissatisfaction with subs in my mind to make it seem like I dodged a bullet

Box is stamped "SUBS" in large red letters, and the lining of the shoe is also stamped "SUB" in red.

Still seems unclear whether they are subs...

Nope. You could see the marking on the lining in one of the pics. You had too look hard though, which the seller probably intended since he didn't even mention that they were subs in the listing...

LOL! I thought he ment the Skyes that were listed on ebay and that people were talking about.

Yes yes, the CJ subs marks are pretty eye catching.

Whoa, and they were a shell cordovan for that price .. A bargain ..

Definitely see the sub stamp on the Skyes. The fact that the seller didn't mention that also makes me suspect that maybe I was right about them having been resoled. (Trying not to feel like an idiot so I may be stretching)

That 'make an offer' button is truly institutional racism. No one of Mediterranean culture can resist it, and with an initial list price that good you basically guarantee that only central and Northern European bidders will win. Disgusting

A little late night brushing with some neutral Cordovan Cream for the Warlows and Lindricks.

Or it could be the seller is uneducated and bought them from a seller who also didn't mention this. I have met a few sellers on eBay which edited their listings after I told them in the PM that the shoes they are selling are seconds.
