That's actually kinda surprising. I'm planning on ordering a pair of Classics here to Canada..will I have these customs issues as well?

Keep in mind those are just my own fitting notes - I have narrow feet. I am tempted to go back and get the Vil Adelaides in brown but I don't really need brown shoes and again, the last isn't really my thing. The Carminas there were nice and about 2/3rd's the price of what Crockett and Jones bench cost here in Japan, but there was a slightly mittleeuropean shortwing, the split toe blucher, and then a kind of dainty double monk there, none really struck my fancy.

It should be noted that the fiddleback waists are kind of deceptive on these shoes - that's just a 2D pattern dyed on the sole. No real figuring. That was kind of disappointing but not surprising.

My feet are narrow, too.

 

I thought so about the fiddleback waists. They looked painted all this while to me in the pictures on their website. I still like the two-tone look though, so I guess it doesn't matter much to me.

Meermin does a slightly beveled waist, not fiddleback. Those have two different types of construction. The beveled waist is real; the 2D coloring is different thing.

I think it was because the cost was over $250 and they didn't know what the shoe trees were? Not too sure as I've never had to do anything before

I have a question for everybody that may have been answered, but I can't scroll through all these pages to find it.  

 

If I just want to get these Rapello Suede captoes in the Olfe last, with a leather sole, made to Linea Maestro standards, will this be a MTO?  If so, how much will this run me total?  When I say total, I mean shoes, shipping, customs, everything.  I would email Meermin, but it seems that it's hit or miss contacting them.

 

I think the Olfe is their best looking last and I wish they had more offerings in it.  Hiro is too AE looking and the New Ray is too pointy.    

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Just takes time for them to go through customer inquiries.  It would be just an MTO without additional fees I think.  If you want to add additional design/patterns on shoes, they do charge 70 EUR MTO pattern fee.  Trees are 35 EUR, shiipping 35 EUR, and Linea Maestro costs 250 EUR.  Do your own math.

it is +100 Euro for an MTO regardless, not sure where the 70 is coming from... BUT if you have to create an entirely new pattern/type of shoe they haven't made yet it is 50 euro on top of that. The suede style they already have is not a new one so you will be fine.

 

so 250-VAT= 211, + 100=311, + 35 shipping is 346, + 35 trees = 381 euro

 

from there it is more expensive for shell cordovan, or some other skin, and 16 euro for steel toe taps

Does anyone know if they do shortwings in dark brown suede?

Okay.  Not going to comment too much on price, but VAT should be deducted from both trees and MTO fees.  Shipping is 35 EUR.

'Rio Primero by Meermin' is one of the imprints I saw yesterday, from the looks of it, they are equal to Linea Maestro, and have a Norwegian in that line as well (this is from like 5 years ago, who knew how far back Meermin went?)

Thank you to all who responded to my question.  I will most likely not get shoe trees.  May get the blakies though. 

 

Meermin is most definitely the right price.

Well, ordered Aug 1st. Sent an email on Aug 10th to check to status and was told they were out of stock and would be shipping at the start of September, now I sent another one and was told they should be ready in ten days.
