    I'm thinking the issue could be clarified by better lighting. Looking at the picture provided, UnnamedPlayer might be struggling to notice any actual flaw. I mean, in that image, the curve described by Sergej isn't really perceptible.

    Still, I'm of the opinion that such an issue, if objectively observed, would be considered a defect and that any customer should return any shoes that do not satisfy them.

    Justification for Meermin's no-wear position could be two-fold, in that it reduces the amount of returns from those who simply dislike the shoe after wearing and it might allow them a market for factory seconds, similar to that of AE.

    Nevertheless, sergej's complaints could have been handled more appropriately. He requested a replacement and appears to have advised them of the details before shipping. When a manufacturer agrees to replace a shoe that has been worn, they should stand by that, no matter if it conflicts with the company's general policy. An agreement is just that, an agreement.

    (We are assuming that he is presenting the facts, rather than attempting to present himself in a manner that will garner more empathy.)

    His story has not, however, discouraged me from placing an order with Meermin at some point.

    I wasn't calling you out by the way. Looking at the pictures provided, I thought that I'd be plenty happy with them and wouldn't notice. I thought the difference looked like even less than the 5mm described.

    oh no, no worries, I was about to point how I noticed the issues in the pics, but looking at them again, i'm not sure whether what I saw was correct, so I just abandoned ship.

    Are we waiting for updated invoices from Meermin for the MTO?

    I got a first round PayPal invoice on December 29th but in this thread TerrorSquad mentioned getting a revised invoice with all my unique MTO details.

    Has anyone received a second invoice?

    No detailed invoice but the numbers added up with a reduced shipping charge so I just paid the first one and hope for the best. Terrorsquad seems to be on top of things. I've been in contact with Sandro about another matter and replies are taking 3-4 days so I suppose they're still pretty swamped.

    Haven't receive updated invoices yet; haven't paid the first invoice of 290ish (vs. 270ish what some reported) since I am not getting trees.

    Pepe is still working on this. Give him 2-3 days; after that, I will give him a call to check on the updates of this MTO, especially for those who require revised invoices.

    I was discussing with Pepe on sourcing this for the next MTO
