LM, with shipping, customs duty, and potential MTO start creeping into the not so cheap range if you ask me.

Well everything is relative of course, but since on this forum we don't discuss crocs and stuff that are cheap for real, but only quality shoes in some sense. As such, Meermin are cheap, especially the classic line but also LM, 260€ still is in the lower parts of the price range for good quality shoes. The fact that shipping and possible customs can occur is irrelevant, since their not part of the cost that Meermin takes for production.

I'm curious as well. I've got a $150 bill from FedEx for a single pair of Meermins

Some pics of my museum MTO and lasted shoe trees. Shoes have been worn a number of time (I believe 8-10 times)

Looks good. How much were you charged for the lasted trees? They seem worth an extra cost.

Let's bring this back around. I'm interested in getting these made.

The EG Olney in Blue or Clove Suede if Meermin can source it.

Any interest? Oh and Terrorsquad, forgot to ask if you can run it!!!

I'm sorry because this has probably been asked somewhere in the 250pgs of this thread, but do the suede tassels fit TTS? I wear a 10.5 in laceups and take 10d in loafers, and I'm considering ordering a pair of suede tassels in uk9. Thanks for any help.

With regard to creases, as previously stated, I don't have a problem with my shoes creasing, I have a problem with them creasing in places they shouldn't and to an excessive degree after one wear! As to them being budget, the museum MTO cost about the same as a pair of C&J, Cheaney or AS. Not everyone considers everything below G&G a budget shoe

I was not talking about your shoes, I was talking about some pics posted earlier from some people who was concerned about a small gap where the two ends of the welt meet, often placed on the inside above the heel.

In that case, my bad! Paranoia is a terrible curse! I agree with you about the welt finish gap, moaning about that is just daft

The heel is uneven with the upper sole, which makes the shoes uncomfortable to walk with.
When stand leaning on the upper sole, only the top portion of the heel touches the ground.
When I lean towards the back, the upper sole is a full half inch above the ground!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This has caused me several slips on pavements, as the soles does not completely grip the ground when I walk.

Contact Sandro. Meermin said they were going to take care of this issue for the people affected.
