    Ozzy is it really that bad? If you can show a close up pictures that would be great? This is certainly disappointing I am wondering if we have set up expectations too high. But with this being MTO and such a long wait, these flaws should really not happen. Anyways sorry about your experience.

    Here's a couple of closeups and yes I may be being picky but my reason for not dealing with them anymore is down to how they responded. I basically complain too much.

    Apologies for the picture quality and feel free to shoot me down if I'm being too harsh

    Ozzy, the problem with those is that the upper looks like if going to separate from the sole, right?

    How do they walk?

    If they really don't want to replace them or fix them, then you should post on their instagram page. Publicly shame them on their poor quality and business practices. These things can really hurt a company, especially one that's relying on an online customer base. They should know better though, fixing them will cost them much, much less than the damage that a post like this can do.

    That I can see it. [​IMG]

    That's bad, as I said my enthusiasm to place my first order (not MTO) is vanishing.

    I'm only seeing the wing which is around 0.50 cm off center when compared with the center between the eyelets.

    The wing looks ok, and it's purely cosmetic, but the sole does look pretty bad. Seen as the sole is the most vital part of a shoe, I'd be afraid of how they'll hold up.

    Tbh I'm not even interested anymore. I've had 4 pairs from them, all LM with 3 of those MTO and they've all had issues to a lesser or greater degree. There comes a point to quit; if only for sanity's sake

    Wow, bad luck Ozzy, for 330€+, Meermin should be taking these quality control issues way more seriously. I know some people here are used to paying nearly a grand on shoes or more, but within a 300€ (or 450$) price range, you do expect the QC issues to be minimal.

    Of course you're not going to order new shoes from them, but it wouldn't hurt to get your brown boots fixed by them. If they won't play nice there's no reason for you to play nice either.
