Long time reader, first time poster. I just received my first order from Meermin yesterday and I thought I would post some pics. For my first order, I got the dark brown calf double monks and the dark brown suede chukka boots with rubber sole (you have to get two to get your moneys worth on the shipping). I couldn't be happier with the quality and overall experience of ordering. The quality is above AE and is much cheaper. The calf and suede feels better than both of my AEs and the lasts are much sleeker. I was a little worried about the sizing and emailed them to get their input. I normally wear a 10E in AEs and Luisa responded and told me I should go with size 9UK in both of these shoes. The fit is right on so they definitely know their sizing and how it compares to other brands. The customer service was also great. The day after I placed the order, I received the Paypal invoice from Sandro. I submitted payment and realized I used the wrong card. I emailed Sandro back and asked him to refund it so I could use a different card. He did this right away without any issue. The shipping was surprisingly fast. I placed the order last Tuesday night and they were delivered to my place in DC yesterday (Tuesday). Also, I somehow avoided any import duties/fees from FedEx. Idk if I just got lucky or what, but I'll take it.
Definitely the first order of many to come.
