Yes, we all have favorite brands and become enamoured with them. I certainly don't disagree that I'm very much into Meermin's shoes at this time. However, the opposite also holds true and there will always be someone out there looking to trash another brand in a misguided effort to push their own favorite. It all evens out. Perhaps we should just agree that Meemin, whether each of us likes the company or not, needs to get a handle on both delivery times and quality control and one way to do that is through an influx of cash which could be borrowed from the banks (not sure how generous Spanish banks are at the moment) or by raising prices.
I'm sorry, I didn't want to come across as "trashing" Meermin - not at all. I like what they do, I like that they also do MTO, and I just like that they exist. We can debate and discuss the relative merits of different brands but it doesn't matter - at the moment, you and I both still want to buy Meermin shoes.
I'm just saying that they have competition, especially at their LM price point, and as choices get wider, the customer experience can cost. They need to stop for breath, even if that means freezing new orders for a couple of weeks, and get a simple off-the-shelf e-retail and stock control system - just like some of their equally small competitors have done. That would make their lives easier, as well as minimising the risk that their customers will cheat on them with a pretty fiddleback Frenchie (other nationalities are available).
