The uppers have stretch marks right above the toes, Pepe informed me these are only on the surface finish. He said they should vanish with some hair blower treatment, the leather should then absorb the finishing. I've yet to try this, wel'll see how it goes. The marks are ugly, but not visible from a metre away. The Norvegese stitching is very straight and neatly done, it only swerves ½ cm on the toes. I'm especially pleased with the tiny welt, too many Norvegese pairs end up as monster shoes due to large welts.
For their price, Meermin offers a lot of shoe.

Nice. Like the initials as well. On a side note, why the mega-sale of your collection? Moving on from Scribes?

Isshi: I've toyed with RTW pairs for several years now. I did this mainly to find out the differences between various makers and offer some unique content on Keikari, but the times has come to choose sides. I don't find it appealing to spend more money on RTW, when Hungarian makers can offer a superior product through and through. Materials, construction, lasts and so on. I'm selling some pairs from the current collection to fund future orders from Vass, who has The Right Stuff. There are other Hungarian makers I'm planning to test, some of which haven't been introduced on SF.
