I'd like to do a group MTO for a staple shoe. Black calf, two eyelet derby, on New Ray or Park. Single leather sole. Basically the shoe below in black calf without the detailing.



Any takers?

Nice. The shape of the derby looks like the C&J Highbury.

What last were you thinking?

My first choice would be New Ray, but I know a lot of people don't fit that last so Park is also doable. I know in the past Meermin has done GMTOs with two different last options so that may be possible.

Does the Park have a low instep?

Oh yes, I returned a pair of shoe to them, they were notified that shoe have arrived to the Spanish post office, I was notified by Meermin that they received a notification from their post office about the package and then shoes sat there for 30 days uncollected and eventually they were returned to me because nobody from Meermin bothered to pick them up.

Until Meermin fixes up its customer service I am staying away from them.

Wow I didn't know they would nickel and dime their clients this way but I guess if it worked for struggling airlines it can be good for meermin

I'm in this camp as well. Just too many excellent alternatives and not enough $$$$ to go around

Mimo, could you describe your experiences? Overall been good? Shoes holding up well?

Thank you. I have a couple other stupid questions. Does anyone have experience with Ridgeway in the snow/slush weather. My current winter boots (Tod's) have aggressive commando style rubber sole (which is absolutely needed in Canadian winters) however the downside is that it causes the wet slush to splash on the back of my pants upto the knee level. I don't believe it is due to my walking but rather due to the pattern on the bottome of the sole. I just want to make sure that I would not have the same issue with Ridgeway.

Second question, I love the idea of having shirling lined boots as i usually walk in the winter at least 40 min outside and it could be -20C , however do I need to size up in the boot vs the same last in the shoe? or is the extra space for shirling already accounted for during the manufacturing process?

Thanks a lot for the answers

David's plan was to offer both the scotchgrain and the calf, with the option of having either for the whole boot, or a mix of both - one for the shaft, one for the vamp as in the EG picture, but either way around as you like it.

To answer your questions, you do not need to adjust the sizing for the lining, as Meermin will make adjustments on their end to accommodate the additional lining.

 

I do not have experience with the Ridgeway soles, and cannot speak to the splashing, however I have several soles including commando for out winters (in Upstate NY) and the reviews I have read on the Ridgeway are that they are as goo or better than commando, and offer full rubber protection on the bottoms without looking like a lumberjack boot from the sides like a Vibram commando sole.

Hi,

I am looking to purchase two pairs of shoes:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85 CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

The one on top is the Burgundy Naturcalf; the one above is the Dark Brown Museum Calf, both GY-2 handwelted (from the Linea Maestro).

I was wondering if any of you had bought them and was happy with them regarding quality, design etc ? I would also like to ask for your opinion regarding the matching belts, shoes trees and shoe care that they sell. Should I order those recommended on their website or, should I look elsewhere ?

Thank you.
