His were one of my favourite radio/podcasts.
Had some Meermins arrive today:
Out of the box, I prefer them to the Herrings I have (plus they fit). A couple of things to note:
Customer service is top shelf - I sent 4 emails in 2 days, and all were replied to in under 2 hours, no matter the time.
When I was told the expected delivery date (by Meermin), that meant the date they were collected by TNT, not when they arrive.
They didn't have any trees in my size, and they are an additional 35 euro.
A couple of very minor finishing issues (nails leaving a slightly bigger hole, some dye stains on insole, punches in the captoe not perfect etc.) but by the looks and initial feel, I'm very happy for under $200/pair landed
Also, TNT tracking/customer service isn't the most reliable, but they got them here in 8 days.

Not as far as I know - we didn't discuss any further once I was told they were out. I imagine they'd put them in the shoes, as mine came with paper stuffed in the toe & vamp, and pressed forward with a piece of plastic tube - imagine a really low budget tree.
