Ordered RTW boots; I don't know if they wait to produce boots so they are ready for fall or something? It's been 2 months. 19 days ago I was told they would ship in 15 days, but they didn't. Anyway, just want them for fall so I don't mind too much.

Please post pics of them when you get them!

Long time lurker here with a question regarding one of Meermin's lasts, The Elton.  I came across it on Ebay (link below) and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this particular last since I did not see it listed on the company's website.  

I'm somewhat skeptical about the listing which is why I chose to pose the question to the community.

Many thanks,

Val

I just came across a similar listing with some double monks listed as Elton last, the outsoles also look pretty different. Any ideas on authenticity, they are listed as seconds? Have no intention of buying but I was curious and couldn't find anything on even a google search.

I received a pair of Navy Suede Derbies in around 3-4 business days from ordering (I enquired if they were in stock and they were - hence the quick turn around)

 

If it's something seasonal (and current), or a model you've seen recently on a twitter/instagram feed, it's likely to be a short turn-around, but anything else can be quite long.

I tried to ask, but the conversation was going nowhere. When I ordered my double monks, I asked if the black calfs where in stock. They replied and said it takes about 30 days. I tried to inquire about the other double monks, but the response was "it takes us 30 days to make them". I just assumed that they didn't have my size in any DB model in stock (which would be very weird).

I don't know if it were a communication error or what, but I think I was very specific that I wanted to ask about stock levels.

Yeah thats strange,, when I enquired into some brown captoes in X size, I got a response the next day saying unfortunately that size was out, the next available size in stock was Y or the 30 day spiel.  I thought that was pretty helpful.

It took me about 20 days from my order started. And when my order was ready to ship i changed my order and took 15 days after that. All pretty close estimates.

Also got the snuff suede loafers any one have any recommendations for suede care? I already have some scuffs. I'm pretty clumsy.

Took me roughly 2 weeks from ordering to receiving these. I'm pretty happy with them, although they're slightly smaller than regular English eights. I'm sure they'll work just fine after I've walked a couple of blocks in them. I'll definitely try Meermin again. Maybe it's time to order now if I'd like mtm winter boots?

I hate all of you that can fit in non-MTO sizes.

That is all.

Hello everyone,

 

This is an update on my Meermin customs fee situation.  I am the poster who sent the correct codes to Meermin.  As of yesterday, I was contacted by Sandro to resolve the situation.  He has offered me a $100 refund to cover the overage.  I feel the overture was rather delayed, but still appreciated.  I now consider the matter closed.  

 

Given this turnaround, I feel fine with taking another look at their shoes.  Still concerned about the other issues discussed in this forum, but willing to take another look.

You sound overly negative. Meermin seems to be more accomodating than most manufacturers out there.

If you don't want to buy their shoes, then don't. You act like it is beneath you. You had a problem, they realized it, and fixed it. 90% of the people on this board would just be ecstatic that the problem got fixed. Meermin doesn't have to pay for your fees, it fact it probably made your shoes a net loss for them.

' I feel the overture was delayed' they weren't even liable or responsible for it in the first place, it was the couriers fault//wrong customs code. And Meermind fixed it when they didn't have to. How arrogant of you.

There was much more to it than what you're saying. I think you're the one who's sounding arrogant, as you have the reading skills of a three year old, but the audacity to think you know the whole situation. Go back and read all the pages.
