Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 41

post #601 of 11536
I ordered my first ever pair of black shoes - calf double monks. Should be here next week.

Yes, I confirm they are more of a chocolate brown than reddish.

Thanks! I suppose the color is closest to the one in the first picture?

The suede double monks on their homepage have a rubber sole. Do yours have that?

It's a Black/Red "Ridgeway" web gem..( I also have the neumok in red) ..... EXCELLENT shoes....

post #608 of 11536

Yes, they do have a rubber sole. If you want I can take some other pictures, but I confirm that they are the same as on their website...

I typically wear a US9D and these UK8 fit very well, but I only tried them on briefly last night. A UK8.5 would've def. been too big.

I hope to place an order this week ( if they ever respond to my email), but still want to know your thoughts on fit and quality, as I am able to get the Loake Cannons for US $255 delivered, and not sure how long I might have to wait for these ( assuming it is worth the wait).

No experience with the new Loake Cannon, but I had the Loake Strand from the 1880 line and I'd rate these higher quality-wise. Calfskin is thicker than I expected, esp. for the price. Grain is very nice and there's a nice depth to the color, i.e. it's not 'flat', despite the fact that there's no burnishing. Color is pretty accurate in my pic; they're more red than they appear in Meermin's stock photo. Mahogany perhaps? I just put on some Saphir Reno and a light coat of Dk Brown Saphit wax before that pic was taken.

I got dinged $70 Customs brokerage/duties/taxes (shipping to Canada), but they're worth every penny at approx. $280 all incl. Easily on par with C&J Benchgrade/Handgrade imo, tremendous bang for the buck if that matters. If Meermin's quality is consistent with these, I can be very happy only buying from their stock shoes and/or MTOs.

Good eye! Nah, those are #13 size Triumph nailed-on metal taps from a UK seller on fleabay. I also use #14s depending on last shapes. They're def. better than the nylon/plastic kind. I have a local guy who can do flush plates for $20, but it's a bit of a hassle getting my shoes to him since I no longer work downtown...

Has anyone requested this sole finish below for their MTO? Took from their facebook page.

Classic line is now €150 instead of €140!

 

Not much of an increase, but I hope that's all...
