Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 737

post #11041 of 11561

I have been following this thread but due to my poor comprehension skills, I still do not understand how ordering from Meermin works as of recent. 

 

Am I correct to say that Meermin works on a just in time/ made upon order basis and that they require a deposit first and then full payment once the shoes are ready to ship? I am refering to shoes that are in their online catalog, not MTOs. 

 

Since meermin appears active here, could I also suggest more suede colors and option for contrast laces for the loafer models. Also, I noticed that navy calf no longer appears in the handwelted shoes section, are those leathers phased out?

Meermin stocks their shoes, just some of the sizes on some models are out of stock. In that case, your ordered size that was not in stock will be a made upon order. You will pay when the shoes are ready to ship, no deposit needed. Meermin will send you a payment method after the shoes are ready to ship to you which can be 2-3 days after you've placed your order (if the pair is in stock, of course).

When I ordered mine 3 weeks ago, I picked 3-4 different models and emailed Meermin whether they have my size in stock. As it turns out, only one of them is in stock, so I made an order on that pair. 2 days later, they sent me a payment method via email. After the payment, the shoes is shipped after 2 days. It is quite fast if everything is ready for you at Meermin.

If the model in the catalogue is not available in your size and you've made an order, expect a very long wait time before they send you a payment notification. It could be from 2 weeks to 2 months.

It is suppoosed to be 1 month max for their RTW stuff.

Traditionally that may be true, but currently (at least in the States) I feel like the perception of balmoral boots will be a step less formal because boots will be seen as non-standard.  I don't think I'd go as far as advising against them for interviews, though, particularly since someone would have to be paying very close attention to your footwear to even notice that they're boots when you're wearing a suit.

99% chance that they won't even notice that they are boots.

Why take the risk?

True - mine took two and a half months - recently.  My initial enquiry as to whether they were in stock was never answered.  But I got them in the end. :)

post #11049 of 11561

^ When were you charged for the shoes?

post #11050 of 11561

Towards the end, but there was a little delay after that too.  Anyway, no matter, I'll order again - cheap is cheap - I just won't order when it's important to get stuff fast, then anything I do get promptly will be a pleasant surprise.

I did read this thread and did research, but still wanted to ask my question just for better clarification as well as give my minor review even if its duplication. 

 

I got the double monk's in dark brown - Hiro last. They are awesome for the price and I am very happy with the last shape and the look of the shoe. The leather is not top nocth but still better than I expected and they look amazing. I was complimented in them a few times already. 

 

 

For hiro last I got 8.5UK since I'm normally 9.5US. I got lucky and it worked out from reading the reviews here. This actually fits me really well on instep + the heel is snug but just about perfect. My only complaint is that it does feel a bit narrow in the front of the shoe near the toes and i dont have wide feet. I know this is just thinner european shoes in general and part of why the last looks nicer so overall its not that big of an issue.

 

However, I did want to go to new rey/olfe  for my next order of captoe. Will I have issue w/ it being narrow in the toe area? If so I can just get the hiro last again.

 

Thanks guys!

My olfe last meermins (both oxfords) feel not as tight in the toe as my hiro chukkas if that helps.

I would agree, Olfe slightly more generous in the toebox than Hiro.

I actually feel they hit their 1 month RTW mark for most customers. Some of the complaints on this thread are from unfortunate folks who really got unlucky

Is New Rey really that narrow compared to Hiro? Should I size up from 8.5 Hiro to 9 New Rey?
