Hard to say what the waiting time for light browns is as I also ordered another pair (not light brown) for a friend.. According to Sandro the order will be shipped in around 30 days.

I think they don't want to sell to Americans any more, too picky...

so far so good on my cuero shells... I really like them... I can try to post some pics today or tomorrow...

Got almost an instant reply on the info@meermin, though they are not replaced splitting soles anymore, only offered to pay for repairs

Then they will lose a ton of business. Id bet Americans are making up the bulk of their orders.

Honestly I doubt this, SF is probably one of the few places they have much traction. Most people would never consider buying shoes from Spain and paying over PayPal

Spain is still pretty b&m setup, so I'd say they get a ton of sales in store, plus their Japanese store as well

Everytime I've talked to those folks they are slammed with SF orders. 

Maybe a better way to put it would be they would lose a big piece of business.

I want to try this brand so I ordered this simple blucher from the Classic collection but they're out of stock till, probably, next month:



Any comments on the classic collection ? I read all this thread and everybody seems to be buying Linea Maestro.

Most of the doublemonks you see in the thread is from the classic collection and some others as my snuff suede wholecut.

They classic collection is great for the low price.

I've gotten my first pair from the Classic Collection (black captoe oxfords) and I'm pretty impressed overall. I'm by no means a shoe expert but I cannot discern a clear difference between these and Allen Edmonds, of which I have several pairs. Of course, the true test will come years down the line when I can really tell how long these have lasted and how they hold up to resoling.

I would recommend these shoes to anyone given the price range they occupy. They are great pieces for everyday wear, especially for someone who wants to wear well-made, attractive shoes but doesn't really want to treat them like precious, delicate goods (as I would have to if I were paying $1,000 for a pair of Edward Greens).

Are you all OK with the way these are finished?


Not the best in finish but on par with other shoes in its price range today.  Only had experience in Linea Maestro line.

I don't think Meermin's leather soles are as sturdy as Allen Edmonds. I wear them out once and they look like I've walked in them for a week. Their 'dainite' soles are okay and better than their leather soles.
