Well you can see one just behind the toecap but other than that The leather is pretty garbage tbh. Stretch marks and weird creases all over the vamp. Sadly for me, someone coined the phrase, the creases of Oz to describe it

Did Pepe say that there were issues with regards to the welting Ozzy?Sorry to see that yours have turned out like that. Must be very dissappointing.

 

I was just about to ask people how their MTO's held up. Mine and some of my friends have held up very well; I've worn them around 10 times already and they have been caught up in a thunderstorm once ffffuuuu.gif Will post some pics this weekend.

 

Ive ordered the Radica leather with Vass in a parisian brown museum calf; will see how Vass's version holds up. Meermin is essentially my daily beater shoes while I use Vass and soon to be Spigola's for days that I want to really dress up for an important meeting. As beater shoes, their classic and LM line has served me well though. But then again, I may have been lucky so far with all my Meermins smile.gif

My three pair have held up well too, but bowing out after the next three pair come in. Although, I may take a shot at the suede Austerity brogue. I have been lusting after a pair since I had to sell my Epaulet Carmina version.

TS.
Yeah, it sucks! Pepe told me just to wear them but I live in a wet, dirty city and any ingress into that gap would've killed the shoes in pretty short order I expect so I decided to send them back. He's been good about it to be fair and offered to pay my return shipping. I still wish I'd waited for these to arrive before placing the boot MTO order tho. I'm starting to agree with the guys who suggest they're just not that bothered about what they send out, just ship it and hope it doesn't get returned frown.gif

I haven't followed the thread in a while also, but it looks to me like the shipping, duties, quality control issues, and the fact that sizing can be a shot in the dark don't make this too risky for me to try.

Dang, guess they didn't maximize the radica leather so everyone got the same quality. 

 

The shoe snob did a great post explaining how shoe companies use their hides. (for anyone interested) http://www.theshoesnobblog.com/2013/06/leather-quality-how-it-varies.html

I think thats most likely the case for the Radica leather. Still feel lucky that mine worked out well.

With Meermin, I'm pretty much in love with the Olfe last as it fits my perfectly and also it has a nice sleekness to it.I have an Ama pair that I hate bcoz of the shape of the last and a Hiro pair which is good for casual shoes but not so sleek as formal shoes.

Gyasih, is the suede one your eyeing the one they just posted on Instagram?And what are your thoughts on the lasted shoe trees?

I think if you got a good pair you'd be more than happy! They're great looking shoes. Just gutted they didn't work for me! Who knows, maybe they'll redeem themselves with the boots

I think they were made very well. They fit the shoe, exactly as one would expect from a lasted tree.

Stick with physically accessible shoes if you can't take risks. Even then you will suffer from manufacturing variances at different makers.

I don't mind the risk especially as there are no decent shoes physically accessible to me outside of a 9 hour round trip to NHampton or London. The last shop to stock C&J in Glasgow closed 15 years ago

Doncaster is at least a little closer - Shoe Healer in Doncaster stocks C&J, AS, Trickers, Loake, many other English brands.

Hello All. I just received my Meermin summer loafers. Unfortunately they are a bit too small for me. I wear a size US 10 in Allen Edmonds shoes, so I ordered these in a 9UK 43EU 10US. They fit more like a 9.5US in my opinion. Asking $220 which is a little less than I paid for them. PM me if you're interested.
