Not sure if this is a normal part of the "mañana mañana" business culture in Spain...

Thanks!

Exact same story for me. I've pretty much given up. Not sure I'd pay them if the paypal invoice actually arrived at this point. Annoying to say the least.

Thanks. Don't know if all the pics went on I can only see the inside profile one. The marks are really the least concerning and, as I said, I wasn't expecting all round Norwegian stitching, it was really a weather resistance thing not aesthetics. I'm happy enough with them they just look a bit clunky and the premium paid kinda means I don't get that bang for your buck thing you do with regular LM. On the bright side, they were 3 weeks late so I blagged free trees! smile.gif

I've gotta say- Pepe, Luisa, and Sandro are, from personal buying perspective, getting a bad rap, but for anyone who has had a poor response/ reply/ delivery experience , no one can say you don't have gounds for complaint. I find this company to be quite efficient, given the distance, and fact that you are directly dealing with family ownership. To each his own

What we see here on SF are the times something has gone wrong - I've had nothing but fantastic interactions with Meermin. Quick responses, MTO delivered on time, etc.

For me I placed an order on Nov. 16, got the message on Nov. 29 to pay via Paypal, did so . . . and now, 10 days later, still haven't heard from them with a tracking number. Maybe the shoes are on their way, or maybe they're still in Spain. But hey, I got a pair a few months back and I really like them, and don't need these urgently, so I'm alright with it. Definitely don't order if you need shoes right away!

Placed my first classic collection order, received a confirmation relatively quick. There is an interesting disclosure that it might take all classic collection orders 45 days to fullfill, so patience will have to be the order of the day. For $206 shipped, if they can match AE quality, I will be very pleased.

Whether the classic line matches AE qualitywise has been a much debated issue in this thread, while I think most agree that the Linea Maestro line definitely surpasses AE.  What did you order?

Hand welted, yeah, I´m aware of that. Just trying to figure out which would be the better one. I´ve seen the carminas in person, and they look great. The meermins look great too, but they seem to have had a lot of quality issues from what I´ve read here. (not much major, but splitting soles, bad stitching, and such) Does them being hand welted make them so much better? Is the lower price worth the possibly worse quality (even if just slightly). 

 

These are the questions I was seeking answers to. If you have experience with either one of them, I welcome you to share your experience.

 

 

I have both.  One Meermin Linea Meastro and a few Carmina.  Quality is about the same.  However, Carmina's leather seems to be of higher quality.  I think, even AE has better quality leather.

Black wholecut on the Ama last. I'll have to order a Linea Maestro model soon too, to compare.

There should be new LM offerings on the Olfe and other more accommodating lasts coming after the holidays.

Some lasts seem to be wider than other lasts, which works for my wide feet. I did notice all LM shoes are on the same last at the moment.
