It's pretty insane. Hard to believe the dude could ever walk again, let alone play basketball. A testament to medical advances
Another thing to bear in mind with Meermin MTO is that they charge more again if you want a wide fitting (+50), and again if you want a full or partial Norwegian welt (+100). If you want both you're up to Euros 510, which is still not crazy without VAT, but is starting to get firmly into Vass territory price wise. Add in sizing concerns and different ways and costs of shipping, and trees or any other extras, and try to work out exactly what your final cost is likely to be. Always worth comparing the maths for your order rather than the base price - I can see no-brainers in both directions depending on what I want.
I just picked up my GMTO copper suede captoes from FedEx!

Here they are with my other GMTO Meermins:
Finally, I think some people had questions about how the new Park last looks compared to the Carmina Simpson last, so here are some side by side photos. I'll try and give some better impressions once I've worn the Meermin's a couple times, but here are a few initial ones: The Park last has a much more "square" toebox than the Simpson, particularly from the "nose-on" perspective. The Park is a bit roomier, but I'm a 9UK in both and that feels right. I'll know more once I've worn them a couple times.
I am almost certain this is not the case. They are just finised in spain just as the regular line.
- the construction is handwelted. (see gemming debates...)
- and the leather is higher quality
- the soles/shoe is more soft initally (from what I hear)
Nice pickup! Question for you @SidewinderX
Being the Simpson last is a more narrow fit than the Rain last, how narrow is the Park last? Hopefully it's more roomier than the New Ray last.
I have all 3 lasts and park is definitely wider than new rey or simpson. Heel grip is much better vs Simpson. I've always felt that carmina heels are just a bit loose. Having said that Carmina feels more solid compared to Meermin.
