Meermin polishes the shell up nicely before it ships.  Curious to hear how it looks after the first coat of Renovateur and some wear.  Congrats on the great looking boots.

Black shell cordovan cap toe! Amazing! I really hope they don't release a pair in brown or burgundy.

320 Euros including VAT, madness!!! I'd be all over them if it wasn't almost the same cap toe pattern as my black shell Alden boots

The Linea Maestro leathers come from some quality sources. I only have one pair at the moment in black Fruedencalf, the leather started out a little stiff and creased up quite a bit in the initial couple of wears but is starting to get more supple and better looking now. They also took a lovely shine for the first time recently too after a couple of times whare I felt I was flogging a dead cow. Can't speak to Classico quality

I'm through with Meermin. My exchange pair still hasn't been shipped nor has my money been refunded. Meermin knew about the return on December 19, as soon as I got more info I returned the shoes on January 4 and they arrived on January 14. Promises about the shipping and/or more info about the current status were repeatedly not kept; no response for 12 days.

 

The often praised customer service is nothing more than a series of unkept promises and the obvious try to make the customer forget that he once ordered and paid for a pair of shoes at least in my case.

 

I find this very regrettable and hope that you are not facing similar problems with Meermin.

 

Best regards

That is very unfortunate to hear.  Hope you can have your issues resolved.

The selection is good, don't know about VAT, which afaik is not deducted anyway, it's reimbursed upon leaving the country, but double check.
Carmina shop is also worth a look (or more wink.gif)


Yeah, when I've had it deducted when I leave the country in other EU countries, but I know some places just do it off the books (Spain and Italy more often in my experience). Didn't know if anyone had experience. Sometimes you also have what you bought with you in the airport to get refunded and I don't particularly want to carry on an extra pair of shoes lol.

 

I might stick my head in Carmina, but I probably have more of a Meermin budget!

I finally think I'm going to take my first plunge with Meermin for these.

I've been sporadically following the thread for the better part of a year, so I'm already aware of niggles about delivery time (they say 25 days on the site, but I'll just consider it 30-45 days so I don't get frustrated) and that I'll probably get hit with $50+ for duties (@#$%).

It looks like thread wisdom is that the Hiro last is TTS. I'm a 10.5+ US (more like a 10.7 in my right foot) so I'm thinking of orderring the UK10 - what say?

Anything else I should know before I pull the trigger?

Think the UK 10 should be a pretty safe bet in Hiro. FWIW remember that even if you get stung for $50 duty, that's more than offset by the VAT deduction. Total of Approx $430 shipped and taxed by my calculation. Just don't get trees!!
