Meermin MTO Norvegese: three-eyelet wholecut in burgundy naturcalf, Hiro last, vanity sole initials, double leather sole, purple lining, flush steel toe guards, natural-coloured welt, light brown stitching.
The uppers have stretch marks right above the toes, Pepe informed me these are only on the surface finish. He said they should vanish with some hair blower treatment, the leather should then absorb the finishing. I've yet to try this, wel'll see how it goes. The marks are ugly, but not visible from a metre away. The Norvegese stitching is very straight and neatly done, it only swerves ½ cm on the toes. I'm especially pleased with the tiny welt, too many Norvegese pairs end up as monster shoes due to large welts.
For their price, Meermin offers a lot of shoe.
