I bought a pair of M_Moria Bb_Tre boots through Cruvoir in November 2017 and last month I noticed the thread in the seams beginning to tear. Raul at Willie's noted it will be a very expensive and difficult repair.
I've emailed Cruvoir and an address at novepvnti.it (which is associated with mmoria/Altieri) but haven't gotten a response.
Has anyone else dealt with a similar problem?

As an update, I got a response from M_Moria and shipped the boots to Rome, Italy, a few weeks ago. I'll update when the Italians are back from their summer vacation.
I sent the boots to Italy for repair by Maurizio at the beginning of August and received the boots back from Maurizio at the end of November. I will leave you to judge the quality of the repair by the pictures. The outer of the boots was stitched to the lining to keep the tear from progressing.
The intact original seam is circled in green - you see only a single line of stitching. Circled in red is where a second set of stitching was sewn through the original holes, attaching the outer layer to the inner lining. View attachment 1088433
Here is a view from the inside showing where the lining was sewn through.View attachment 1088436
Here's how the boots look now. The tear and the backside of the lining is still visible.

I got in touch with Maurizio and mentioned being dissatisfied with the repair and he has offered to replace the boots. Things run slow in the M_Moria world but things are run with care.
He did say he would replace them but we haven’t yet been able to connect over the phone to discuss the replacement.
Update: We’ve chatted a couple of times over the last six months but there has been no clear movement on actually replacing the faulty boots.
Update on this - there's a plan with Maurizio and confederates to sell my faulty boots and replace them with a pair made to my specifications. It's a slow process but seems to be going according to Maurizio's plan. As such, expect an update in another six months!
