I am a "true" US 10.5 and these are 9.5 in meermin's sizing. The fit is pretty good- width seems to be comparable to a standard US d width. I also have a pair of double monks on the hiro last, also in 9.5 and the fit feels pretty similar.

My first go at Goodyear welted shoes and I am very pleased with the result. Email conversation with Luisa took 3 days, the shoe was ready to be shipped within a week. I received the shoe 4 days later. From start to finish it took 2 weeks and that included discussion on specific shoe availability. Very pleased with the speed of communication by Luisa and Sandro. Regarding the shoe, no defects apparent and shoe fit was spot on. Will be looking at the chukkas and oxfords in the near future.

Don't be a douche and claim something ordinary as yours.

Looking to pick up the LWB in suede with the double leather sole. Can anyone comment on the roundness/clunkiness? I will wear it mostly with jeans, so don't want it too sleek.

Too lazy to shuffle through my stacks of magazines but the design isn't new or original.

But whatever floats your boat.

Good looking boots btw, except for the pull tab part.

I got the same response from Sandro, who asked me to share it here:

 

"The problem has been solved.

 

UPS was doing the custom clearance with a wrong tariff code, and the

duttie was 38%.

 

 From the last days all the shoes are leaving Spain with the tariff code

6403.59.30.40 (leather shoes with we on the invoice and UPS will

dispatch at 5%.

 

Please if you can inform about it in styleforum it was very grateful for

another costumers.

 

Many thanks

Kind regards

Not my area of expertise, but I'd be surprised if UPS can do anything about this after the fact.  The shoes were taxed at the appropriate rate for the tariff code indicated.  I would demand that Meermin make this right, though.

Thanks for sharing, beautiful shoes by the way.  I'm considering both the single calf and double monks, but I'm a 10E in US sizing. Louisa has advised me to go only a half size down... I'm worried that the shoes will have a bit of extra length to them.

Oh, so for the record, they were catering to your whim all along as these are your designs. Got it.

This is rather disappointing. I am the poster who called UPS and figured out the HTS code to use, in consultation with the UPS expert. The reason that Meermin is now quoting that code and estimating a 5% tariff is due to my leg work. I emailed Sandro with that information. However, I have heard no response on my request to get a refund on the additional $100 charged to me due to the error by Meermin. I emailed Pepe and Sandro twice, asking about a resolution, and noting that this issue is being discussed on styleforum. The fact that they are claiming an error on the part of UPS in inaccurate. It was Meermin who submitted the wrong code, and UPS was simply applying the appropriate tariff. My conclusion is that Meermin customer service is abysmal. You might think that they would show some measure of gratitude, since I saved them a lot of headaches with the proper code. But after two emails, they have simply ignored me and now want to spread the news here about the new correct code. Sigh.

Error on their part to some extent but ordering shoes from overseas means you take some risk as well. No vender should be responsible for any customs / duties / brokerage

No, they're not responsible for the duties, but if they ship internationally they ARE responsible (and solely responsible) for filling in the forms correctly.  It's an error on their part entirely, not "to some extent".  A lesson learned for them I guess - or it should be  But really, blaming the courier, then not giving at least a credit note or something by way of apology/recompense, is really shitty treatment.
