Good post. There's a lot of that on this forum. Complaints about small issues that came with a small price. I'm guilty of it myself. I guess I'll have to watch myself a little closer, try to understand the situation. I guess, the next mistake someone sees on their shoes, they should ask, "Is it worth the difference in price between Meermin and G&G to get that fixed?" and if so, go G&G next time. If not, understand that's the level of work you contracted. I have thought about getting some Meermin suede but I REALLY hate customs charges. I hate to see that money go to someone other than the person I wanted to pay in the first place.
