Not sure why you'd be messing with meermin if you could afford C&J. Unless strictly for beaters. Meermin lasts make me very happy indeed, for the money. But I prefer the quality of my British made shoes and certainly wouldn't have more than a pair or two if C&J was the right price to be able to have 5 pairs to rotate.

My question was exactly that, directed to those, who own CJ and other premium brands yet actually bother buying Meermin as well.

Maybe it's not a bad idea to have some Meermins for really shitty weather or something similar.

Meermin are very nice shoes, until you put them next to brands like the one you mentioned, which are obviously superior.
But this is the same for Loake and all the mid-tier brands.

My experience is that the finish and exterior look is nice and refined (for example the welt finish is clean and nicer than many english brands)
The problem is "inside" the shoes, insole and toe and heel counters are very very stiff and make them unconfortable after a couple of hours.

I would buy only loafers and monks from them anyway, I simply hate their laced styles with a mile of spacing between eyelets, very cheap looking IMO.

I own only the tassel loafers (friends own the double monks and other tassels) worn as daily beaters during spring summer months, after years of use and abuse they're still in great strong condition.
I would definitely recommend them.

Last year I make a Meermin VS C&J comparision, maybe it could help, see here:

Fellow Torontonian here. I have paid $78 and eighty something CAD for the two orders shipped with FedEx. For my last order, I emailed and asked them to send it with the national Spanish post service. I received them after three weeks but didn't have to pay anything for tax and duty. Hope this helps.
