Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 43

post #631 of 11389

So, quality wise, how's the classic collection compared to AE? It's much cheaper than AE if we are only talking retail price.

The colour is very close to that of the website - the 'reddish' hue only really seems to come out under artificial light. I'll be able to provide a better assessment of their true colour during the day after I take them on their madien voyage tomorrow if anyone is interested?

As for fit, I can only comment on the difference from loake's 'captial' last but there is less room in the vamp/upper. This is great for me as I have to wear inserts in my loake strands - I guess I have a relatively flat foot. The length is spot-on for me also (my strands are a UK 7 as are the meermin double monks).
I would also like to echo everyone else's comments regarding the quality of service from Meermin. The guys are extremely friendly/helpful and the shipping (to Australia) took 6 business days! Highly recommended.

Well they've just arrived and i have to say for the money handed over they have exceeded my expectations!!

Quality wise i'd put them between the C&J Bench & Handgrades, the colour has again exceeded my expectations. I'll leave others to judge the finer elements of quality regarding leathers and finishing but if i'm being honest from very much a "laymans" perspective i cant really see much difference in finishing from my Handgrade Belgraves or Grenson Masterpices. Fit wise i'm a 6.5UK E in C&J Handgrades and these fit virtually the same being a 6.5UK too, being very much the same in length with plenty to spare in the toebox.

I just hope these pictures convey how really nice these shoes look for the money paid and i'm so pleased i took what basically was a punt based upon photos here and the fact by all accounts they are related to Carmina's.

It must also be said that Meermin (Jose & Sandro) have been a delight to deal with, full marks to them!!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 Save some money for the Carmina store. They usually have some pairs on sale for as low as €218, and you might happen to like some of them ;)

They are somewhat better than any AEs I have. Closer to C&J benchgrades, IMHO.

BTW, there is no direct relation with Carmina, except for some distant relatives.

@kevin - thanks for sharing. Looks like a wonderful pair of shoes. Can't wait to get mine. Should be the same colour as yours I think. Dark brown right ?

Good to hear. I also ordered in Marron. If they are just half as nice as yours look, I'm ordering some dark Brown suedes.

Amazing shoes for the price, curious to see how the leather will crease and age.
post #643 of 11389
bang for the buck, these have to be near the top.
post #644 of 11389
those look great

I was quite set on getting a pair of Herring Richmonds for my first pair of proper welted shoes, especially since they come with free cedar shoe trees.

 

But after seeing kev777's photos, I might have to reconsider. :)
