I need some help. I've been around reading the forum for quite some time but i still count myself pretty green and new to shoes. I've bought a couple of Linea Maestro models from Meermin in the past but recently but i have a pretty bad shipment lately. To top it off, i saw this on my pair of classic model, semi brogue suede shoes.
Is that normal or its a huge defect?
Can someone feedback regarding this?
It's a lack of attention to details when they burnishes the sole edge; they probably forgot to use plastic to cover the toe tip so some of the suede appeared to be burnished by the burnishing iron. Not a defect per se, but definitely would not pass the quality assurance test at higher priced shoe manufacturers.
Hey chogall, or whoever's experienced, isn't the leather upper and the sole not well stitched? It seems like there is a huge gaping hole. It looks pretty bad but i'm not too sure what's the actual problem. Is this really due to improper burnishing?
^ That. Looks more like a welting problem than finishing.
