Hi all.
Since joining SF I've been buying some good year welted shoes from the less expensive brands on the web.
I was disappointed with bexleys so my next was from Markowsky and next from Herring brand: not bad, not great (as one should expect, I suppose).
Now I've discovered the Meermins here and, as I haven't read much about the classic collection, how do you think they compare to those other brands ? Specially people who have had them for some time and/or know my other brands.
Thanks.

P.S. I've enjoyed your Linea Maestro shoes, but not something I can afford now (also, too sleek/elegant for my actual needs).

Black wholecuts from the classic line with shoe trees.

Unfortunately I got hit by customs (100$), although these shoes are still far above anything found in Ottawa within this price range.
(Shipped on the 20th & just arrived an hour ago.)



I can't wait to break these in!

Are those the 101332 as listed on the Meermin site? They're great looking!

Sandro replied and said they still have some left and the rest is history smile.gif

That is just pure beauty!! Classic line right? I am debating between this and Loake Pimlico in the dark chocolate suede also. Could you comment on the quality of material or last between the two? Also, did they mention what lasts these are being built on?

I'm quite sure they are, I have the same. And yes, they do look great! :)

Correct on both counts. :>

its on the RUI last. cant comment on the Pimilco but these chukkas are nicely made. Its a little stiff up top which hurt my ankles as they were digging in while i was walking, but they will soften.

I read somewhere way back in the thread that these are from the Classic Collection, can you confirm this? I'm thinking about getting pair but I don't know if the RUI last is too round or not since the Capital last for the Pimlico from Loake is really nice and modern. Perhaps a couple of top view pics of yours? :D

they are classics, i have them in snuff suede

they are a bit big in the upper foot for me, which causes a somewhat unslightly ripple.

I'm not in love with mine, but will tough it out to see if they improve.

What US size in AE do you wear and did you size down a whole size or just half? If you had it shipped to US, were you hit with a custom charge?
Thanks for the information.

Shell longwings were shipped on Monday and delivered today with no request for paperwork and no mention of customs or brokerage fees.  Does this mean I'm in the clear or might I still receive an FU brokerage fee from FedEx in a few weeks?

Since it is a personal shipment and not on a corporate account, I would say the odds of you getting an invoice retroactively from FedEx is slim to none.

Now, let's see some pics. smile.gif

i've seen several people in this thread post pictures of their suede double monks with what appear to be leather soles. however, the meermin site shows the dark brown suede dub monks with a rubber sole. are the leather-soled monks that people are posting MTO's or something?

How does someone find out about which shoes are available that are not on their website? Sometimes I see them in the tumblr but I've seen a lot of shoes posted that are not MTO and are also not on their website? Is there anyway to figure this out other than guessing and emailing them about a specific shoe?
