Carmina. No contest. All depends on your intended use really. When I look at the Mermin, I'm thinking that you're attracted the the sleekness - but if that's what your looking for, the norgewese welt plages it right between a more roughed look and the clean polished City boot. The Carmina is imo much cleaner in a relaxed/rouugh design direction here, with the grain leather etc.
