What floors me is when posters want to compare shoes from makers such as G&G and C&J with Meermin and then do so unfavorably without considering the price difference for the quality of product. If the spacing of the eyelets is worth spending another $400-$1000 per pair of shoes, then I can only suggest they do so. At least it might cut down on Meemin's delivery times. Seriously, there are definitely things not to like about Meermin: wait-times, quality control (although that seems to have gotten better), partial Chinese production, or maybe a person doesn't like the styles overall. Eyelet spacing is not a concern that most people will have to seriously consider before saving hundreds of dollars.
