Hey guys, I'm the guy who sent them the correct codes. The message below says that Sandro is dealing with this issue, but after three emails to that were ignored, I just gave up. After seeing the message below, I sent another last try to Sandro. Let's see if they keep their word and offer some type of solution. Honestly, I don't really expect any answer. I am happy about others enjoying their shoes, but I've moved back to Allen Edmonds. Their styling is fine for me, and customer service is outstanding. Carl ================================================================================================================ Let us clarify something, in the last 9 months shipments we had no custom issues until those few that raised up recently. We never been adverted to use any code when shipping via UPS, neither with FedEx. Said that, we didn't put the wrong codes when shipping, since the codes were put down by UPS. Nowadays we ship all the orders with tariff codes for every article in order to not have any custom issue. Regarding that UPS duty issues that some customers had, Sandro manages them and is still managing some with the customers in order to find out a solution, but as far as I know there hasn't been any problem in switching that shipments to the regular codes. If any member still haven't solve the situation, please email Sandro at sandro@meermin.es and it will be solved as soon as possible.

Report back on whether they take care of you.

(Parisian brown)


 

1: Balmorra boot Parisian bottom w/ suede upper



2: Derby boot (Parisian bottom w/ pebble or hatch grain chocolate upper)



3. (2 or 3 eyelet) Derby



4. single monk

Received my double monks from Meermin and was disappointed.

 

The heel is uneven with the upper sole, which makes the shoes uncomfortable to walk with.

When stand leaning on the upper sole, only the top portion of the heel touches the ground.

When I lean towards the back, the upper sole is a full half inch above the ground!

 

This has caused me several slips on pavements, as the soles does not completely grip the ground when I walk.

Most RTW shoes do come with toe spring so you have nothing to worry about.

 If it helps, all my Vass have the same thing

My Carminas too. You guys are getting a bit too paranoid about the QC issues and seem prone to find defects where there are none. I'm not denying the issues, as they are undoubtedly present, but this is a bit too much...

 

Your shoes are perfectly fine, TrackerB. Slippage problems will likely disappear when the sole wears in a little. Enjoy them in good health.

Slippage issues, score the affected area lightly with a blade, like you would a pork to make crackling but in a cross hatch pattern. Problem solved a much grip to be had.
post #6790 of 10191

Thanks. I'm not paranoid about the QC from Meermin and do find them a great value for money.

I've got 6 pairs so far. Some have uneven stitching, or uneven tongues, etc and I'm fine with that.

 

I'm just concerned about the durability and comfort. I checked my other 5 pairs of Meermins and the heel and upper sole were even, except for this pair.

Hence, my concern. 

 

I thought about topying/vibraming the upper sole to thicken it, making it even. But this pair has metal toe caps, which kinda defeats the purpose. 

 

If you guys reckon that it will even out over more wears, then I'm fine with it.

Thanks for the assurance guys :)

I'm so tired of reading about people's "disappointments" with "major defects" on their new Meermins, and then showing pics of a heel not fully touching ground (like stated, something that's found at many, many makers), creases that's just totally normal (yes, leather shoes actually DO crease when worn, buy suede shoesor fabric sneakers if you don't like it), sole color on uppers (found on everything from my Loakes to my Gaziano & Girling to my bespoke), small gap were the welt meet (found on many, many makers shoes) and so on. It's getting a bit ridiculous actually, especially since we are talking about budget shoes at very affordable prices.

And yes, I do know that there has been some real issues, but they are as I've experienced it a minority.

I just received a pair of punched cap toes in scotch grain with Dainite soles from the classic line. They are great. Some of you would probably have posted tons of pics with "major defects" by now though, but to me, they are great. They are cheap bench made shoes. And us such, they are great.

Well, some are legitimate while some exaggerated. 

 

Like I said, I've ordered 6 pairs from Meermin, and only this pair had this issue.

Naturally, it occurred to me that this is not normal and I seeked to clarify this. As I said, scratches/uneven stitching, etc does not bother me. It is the durability and comfort that I was concerned with.

Weird. Maybe it's because they're new? Though my oldest pair of Carminas is still uneven...

Classic line shoes are generally cheap (try selling $200+ shoes to the average person as cheap, but i digress).

LM, with shipping, customs duty, and potential MTO start creeping into the not so cheap range if you ask me.

I'm pretty sure that if you can see the welt stitch for almost the whole forepart of the shoe that's a legitimate cause for complaint. Its going to allow abrasives to get between the upper and the sole and in pretty shot order those shoes will be fucked. With regard to creases, as previously stated, I don't have a problem with my shoes creasing, I have a problem with them creasing in places they shouldn't and to an excessive degree after one wear! As to them being budget, the museum MTO cost about the same as a pair of C&J, Cheaney or AS. Not everyone considers everything below G&G a budget shoe
