Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 385

post #5761 of 10191
I am interested in the navy naturcalf on the olfe last an I'm looking for some sizing advice. I wear an 8eee in AE 5 last and fits well, but is a little loose width-wise on other lasts. Are my feet too wide for the olfe last?

also, is the picture of the navy naturcalf on meermins website fairly accurate? they seem a little more blue than navy, and I'm looking for something like midnight.

I'd be in for the plum as well in an Adelaide or Plain toe that laufer linked.

From what I understand, we need to have a minimum of 25 orders in plum museum calf, but only 6 in a particular style to avoid the MTO upcharge. I could be wrong, but that would mean that we can have 3 or 4 different styles.

Esp with the ram-horn brouging.

"ram-horn" ... so much better in casual conversation than "cock and balls" (or is there a difference?)

You guys know that custom broguing is probably off the table, right? Custom medallions are usually reserved for bespoke shoes.

And what makes you think I've never asked?

Standard Merm brouging on the toe still might be a nice touch. Not super keen on calf plain-toes; been there, done that, wrote the movie, sold the rights. Dah well. Opinions...

Finishing is good, one toe tap is not on even and there's a gap (still functional right?) and some wrinkles in leather but nothing major. Also did anyone have a strong chemical smell on their shoes? Mine reek? Maybe just hot LA weather

Also had a shipping address that I wanted to change, thankfully I had not paid or they would have been sent to the wrong address.

That's weird. Did you get a invoice with the shoes or did you take them as a gift? wink.gif

So I've read that meermin manufacture their shoes in china- however on my recent order the shoes say "Made in Spain" on the insole. These are from the classic line.

Yeah, a large bulk of the production is said to be done in China with the finishing in Spain.

Mate sry for my rusted brain but I couldnt get points between your lines... Are you saying if they're indeed made in china then you gonna end up buying Meermin...? Or you gonna be devastated for haven't got enough pairs of meermin...?
IMO even if they're made in china, they're not overpriced. And even if they were made in china, still many people were happy w/ the shoes and thinking ordering more pairs

Lastly, we don't know if the requisition of both Plum and Hatchgrain will run concurrently or consecutively.

Thanks for the briefing!
