Hi all,

 

I need some help. I've been around reading the forum for quite some time but i still count myself pretty green and new to shoes. I've bought a couple of Linea Maestro models from Meermin in the past but recently but i have a pretty bad shipment lately. To top it off, i saw this on my pair of classic model, semi brogue suede shoes.

 

Is that normal or its a huge defect?

 

Can someone feedback regarding this?

 

It's a lack of attention to details when they burnishes the sole edge; they probably forgot to use plastic to cover the toe tip so some of the suede appeared to be burnished by the burnishing iron. Not a defect per se, but definitely would not pass the quality assurance test at higher priced shoe manufacturers.

 

 

 

 

Hey chogall, or whoever's experienced, isn't the leather upper and the sole not well stitched? It seems like there is a huge gaping hole. It looks pretty bad but i'm not too sure what's the actual problem. Is this really due to improper burnishing?

^ That. Looks more like a welting problem than finishing.

Just got an email saying the dub monks I've been waiting on for a few weeks are back in stock and shipping today. So far, everything about my transaction has been flawless. I only hope I don't get nailed with a bill from FedEx.

Just appeared on the Meermin Tumblr - New Toro Last - Looks rather nice but I'm going to reiterate a need for a square toed last, this style of monk seems to look much more balanced with that kind shape IMHO

Their web store is up. Not sure if that has been mentioned yet.

While no doubt interesting, these confuse me. Where and how will you wear a shoe that has pebbled grain, suede, brouge-ing, and laces on the side?

Not my shoes, but I would definitely wear those to work, play, or whenever. Different styles for different folks. Would you be more turned off if you came across someone wearing the shoes shown or by looking at sneakers?

These shoes by far. The black is more formal, the dainite, suede, pebble grain, and side lacing are less formal. Its entirely incongruant. You can't wear them with CBD, and brown is infinitely more interesting with less formal suits and casual wear. I can see absolutely no practical purpose for these things...then again, that goes for a lot of the MTO stuff that people get...and that goes for G&G and the like as well.

Give me a break. You guys live by some antiquated dress code that is neither rational nor playful. You don't have to shit on someone else's MTO because you have a preconceived idea of what you think is style-law. Your obstinance and condescension only serves my point.

I just asked a simple question homey. I truly cannot think of a situation where I would wear these, thus my curiosity for the owner.

I wrote to Sandro and he replied to say that he checked with the factory and they claim that because its a handmade shoe, its an aesthetic issue that happens.

 

I have a couple of their LM models but this is my first classic model and its leaving quite a bitter experience.
