Current waiting times seem to depend mostly on the requested model. My exchange pair still hasn't even been shipped yet (Ama wholecuts). Meermin got to know about the defect on December 19, my shoes arrived at their place on January 14.
So you can either be "lucky" and wait about 30 days or wait a while longer...
I imagine the costs would be a lot higher since you're not buying in quantity. Maybe Meermin will switch to Horween if enough customers request it.
