    I don't think they do true norwegian.

    I guess Im the exception...I received my loafers and they look great...Im very pleased with them...theyre way better than I was expecting, and I dont get any kind of harsh break-in feel either....they feel good...but they are too big and there is some bowing...but I will either try using inserts or see what an exchange would entail...but if I had sized these right, these would be perfect. Definitely wont be my last purchase from Meermin

    Dear All,

    Just documenting a pair of unlined soft calf loafers that arrived today.

    On the left shoe, there is a sharp metal object sticking out from the insole/footbed.

    I called the New York store to ask about returning this pair and being reimbursed for shipping charges.

    My request for shipping reimbursement was politely declined.

    I subsequently emailed customer service and am awaiting their response.

    You know the funny thing is a large proportion of people who receive lemons are likely to post about it on forums compared to "satisfied" customers.

    Not saying they shouldn't of course as some of the defects are clearly not acceptable. Unfortunately, when one with no prior knowledge of said products comes in and does research, he/she will likely come away with a poor perception of the brand.

    This is unavoidable across any brand (you can easily check other threads) but personally for someone like me who has to resort to importing good shoes, having a lower amount of "money at risk" is always welcome.

    Meermin admitted they shouldn't have sent out the pair I received. Yet they want to charge me for the return shipping! Debating about doing a charge back on my credit card just because...

    A game of ratios then. We imagine the sales numbers of certain brands compared to the posted complaints then gauge the overall quality of those brands. Meermin ranks very low unfortunately.

    I bet you'd have a good case for a charge back there. I mean the evidence is irrefutable - frankly if you didn't look first inside the shoe, you could've been harmed by the damn nail sticking through.

    What garbage from Meermin.

    Have you contacted Meermin directly? As in, Meermin in Spain, not the store in NYC? I've heard from a couple people that the NYC store isn't as helpful as they could be.

    lol I didnt have a nail in the footbed, but the shoe was just ridiculously poorly made.

    @sarteaga this was bought online via GMTO.

    I'd still contact them directly and threaten a chargeback.

    In all honesty I have many pairs of Meermin's and have never had issues but stuff like that isn't okay.

    Realistically though we shouldn't expect much from a pair sub $200 shoes. I know the pics make them look like Carminas but reality is far from it. So if it works for you, wear it to death for 2 years and just buy a new one.
