Anything out of the scrap Radica.

Leather key chains ala Ghurka chains. Small oval scraps of Ilcea Radica fashioned into the key chain, signifying that you are a small " band of brothers", a secret society of paratrooping, anti Lobb infiltrators, and proud members of what might be the greatest group buy ever.
You had your shoes fashioned by a master maker, enabling you to march into the London Financial District without detection. My God, this does have a shoe making parallel to the British commandos, only you are using a Free Spanish shoe undergound to avoid City Centre detection. A fraternity of your own, laces and other flourishes pale in comparison to the "Meermin- Lobb" operation, the key chain as your identifier. Initials and shoe number will be part of a great, hyperbolic fabrication when the shoes are passed on to your descendants. "Granddad, did you serve on the front? No child, I was of the SF resistance, Pepe was our leader, Terrorsquad, our handler" The stories will be rich

Problem is I do not think the Chinese outworkers are adequately trained to make sized/lasted trees by hand (or the outworker fab has last copying machine).  But if it would be awesome if it can be done.

Great idea!  Key fobs, bracelets, belts (???), dog tags, business card holder/wallets (??), leather buttons?

I have a simple suggestion. How about having the small piece of leather on their shoe trees with the "Meermin" stamp be made from bits of the Ilcea leather, so it matches the shoes?

 

It's nothing much, just a subtle touch.

 

Other accessories would be nice too, but that's if they have enough of the Ilcea leather to work with.

Hello gents!

Lately I've been looking around for a maker that could produce shoes for me that actually fit, for you see I have quite wide feet. I emailed Luisa at Meermin, with measurements and pictures, and was told the simply didn't know if their shoes fit. Now, this strikes me as odd. Shouldn't they at least be able to compare the measurements? I've read about them being able to customize the width as well, yet when I asked about this I received no reply. I am confused, for I feel as if it shouldn't be that hard, and I'm being treated as if they have no interest in my money.

If you know of why this is, could you enlighten me?

This is one of the images I sent to them: http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/605553/default/sort/display_order/

That's kind of weird, to be honest. I actually got the idea from someone else who posted about doing this earlier in the thread. I traced an outline much like you did and showed my measurements, based on my trace, and asked what size they recommended. Luisa was responsive and let me know that a UK 9.5 in the Classic or 10 in the LM (New Rey last) would be best for me.

 

This was just a few days ago too and I had emails going back and forth asking some other questions.

I am doing something incorrectly or if they are just slow.
Thanks
I placed an order for a pair of double monks on November 23rd. Immediately received an order confirmation, but I didn't get a Paypal invoice before last night, when my order changed to processed and ready to ship.

(Do note that I'm in the same time zone as Spain - I suspect they're working around the clock).
