Thanks for the clarification. I just ordered the black double monks w/ the medallion toe, & I would've felt duped if they weren't made in Spain.

Yep, those are Maestros. They just posted some cap toe double monks on their tumblr site that I think are in the Regular (= Classic?) line. They're close channel & goodyear welted. So that would be a bargain for the money.

Here is how my GF's Linea Maestros look like after one week:
261
261
261

Yes, she is rough on 'em, but even that can't explain the split in the sole... ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif


Question for the experts: what is the cause of the split, and will it get worse?

Edit: sorry for the crappy pics but I couldn't be bothered to take nicer pics of that!

Are both soles split?  Man, that sucks.

Wow... (puts credit card back in wallet)

The sole splitting is certainly not good, but that upper looks like it is 10 years old, and the bigger concern for me.....

the glue didn't hold up good enough. it will get worse, if you don't have it fixed.

this happens sometimes.

Any shoe repair shop can fix that. Or do it yourself with a little Barge cement and a small clamp.

Where were these purchased?

To be fair, the photos were taken under very poor lighting and the uppers were pretty scuffed up.
It's not as bad IRL as it seems from the photo.

Thank you fritzl. Will try to persuade the GF to take it back to the store.

Just find out those "Meermin Rubber Top" shoes are from a Japanese brand named "PIDO".

I'm sorry for all the misunderstanding.
