Guys! I need your advice!
I ordered a pair of double monks, linea mastro range in Feb this year.
I've worn these shoes about 20-30 times and I notice that my soles are beginning to split!!
Have any of you guys experiences this problem before or is this considered a defect?
The gap can be further widened when I pull the soles apart :(
As some of you know, I'm involved in the 2MTO ordered (from Terror and OzzyJones), and another 3 in the making..
I hope they don't turn out like this... :(
I've emailed Pepe and Luisa...
You say handwelted so I assume these are Linea Maestro shoes? There was a huge batch of classic collection shoes where all the soles split, but this was middle of last year, if I remember right.
I don't think how the soles are stitched to the welt on the LM shoes, but they could well be machine stitched. If it's bothering you, and you can't get in touch with Meermin, go have a chat to a local cobbler.
