Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 1008

I do not think that shoe fits you well enough. Excess leather at the vamp and at the instep. And the stiff leather contributes to that too,

Question here from an Australian looking at the meermin site. Perhaps obvious or silly question.

 

What currency are these prices listed in on their English international website.

 

For example, the brown chelsea boot 101498 is listed as: 220,00 $

 

Is that EUR? Or is that USD? It says "shipping to: Australia" on the top right. It could possibly mean AUD (hopeful, but not likely).

 

Would be grateful if someone who has ordered can please advise. :D

Those prices are in USD - I remember hoping those were in SGD as well the first time I ordered haha! Hope that doesn't dissuade you though, they're still a lot of value for pretty good shoes. :D

Meermin boot wearers (particularly in pebble grain, brogued, with rubber sole): how are they for walking a decent amount in cities?

 

I'm thinking about a pair (e.g. https://meermin.es/grupoMTO.php?idGrupo=466) for mild winter weather travel, 5-10 km walking a day. How thick is the insole? Do you get irritation around the ankle after a fair bit of walking as can happen with stiffer leather? How does the boot as a whole wear with time and miles? What about if you Topy it?

Thank you! So you know the feeling.

I'm interested in these shoes:

The only thing is they have rubber soles instead of leather. Should I care they have rubber soles?

@Slh

 

I have this pair. Not to be unhelpful, but whether you should care about these rubber soles depends on whether you care about rubber soles in general. Why might you be concerned

 

If you're concerned about them being too informal I don't think that's a problem; they fit with the fairly casual design and grained leather. They are perhaps a little heavier, that's the only negative I can think of. On the plus side you get more grip and (useful in the UK) improved impermeability.

what trousers do you wear them with? Can they go with jeans but also flannel trousers?

Yes, I'd say so. I mostly wear odd jackets and flannel, linen or chinos at work, and denim at weekends, and they are a good versatile choice. I'd say less useful if you wear more suits than me.

 

Edit: I'm thinking along these lines.

Sorry to ask again, but just wondering what I can do to actually make this shoe bearable. Is there a way to stretch or soften the left shoe edge wall? Thanks in advance.

Band aid,talcum powder and the careful use of a hammer.

Plaster ('band aid') and/or makeshift cloth insert until the edge softens. You want it to be softened and stretched by your foot, not something else.
