Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 464

post #6946 of 10973

Finally!

As previously noted, I went for the "boring" black calf double monks, and today was the day they arrived. Might as well give my review on the fit, quality and overall experience. 

This is the timetable for my shoes:
 

  • 04/jul/2013 Order introduced into the system.
  • 04/jul/2013 Order initiated.
  • 14/jul/2013 Order paid.
  • 23/jul/2013 Order finished.
  • 23/jul/2013 Order send it.


And 1 week later i received the shoes. On first sight, the shoes look and feel amazing. Very stiff leather (as someone already mentioned) and will probably take some breaking in.  Loake's Capitol last is pretty close to the Hiro last IMO. When it comes to shoes, it seems that everyone feels that the quality could always be better. But these shoes are a real bargain for the price.These shoes are truly as good as it gets for the one that can't afford 800€+ shoes, or even C&J. I rate the quality as somewhere between Loake 1880 and C&J. 

I feel that the leather quality could be a bit better, but frankly it doesn't need to be. You get what you pay for, and when it comes to these shoes, you get a hell of a lot more than you pay for. I seriously recommend Meermin to everyone. Next up Linea Maestro or a pair of MTOs. 

Here's a few shots:

Ozzy any pics on our boots yet? In our bastard of a country the fall is around the corner.

 

Last width changes:

Anyone with experience in custom last widths? How does it actually work when one requests a last to be smaller/wider than it usually is? For example making a Rui last in the width of a New Rey.

Not in my opinion and experience. Tried both in various sizes and I find them quite alike. Then again as the last is too wide for me, my opinion may be biased based on the fact that it doesn't fit me properly.

WTF.  Beginning of December is BS. Well at least the boots last for years. I guess if I managed without boots last fall I can manage without em this fall as well.

Not sure about last (initial thought is Rey but they look softer) but it looks like they used the best of the museum calf!
Edit; found it! Ama last

Ahh thanks all. That looks awesome. I'd still love to see a wholecut in New Rey to see if it works or not.

hehe I like the disclaimer at the end but appreciate the comments.  Ah well worst case scenario they crease a little on the side like the loakes (which is better than creasing on the top imo) best case scenario they fit awesomely, think ill just roll the dice, really like the look of the dark brown in the newer pics they posted a cpl of pages back.

Bozzkeren; no but it looks like they used the best of the leather for it!

Konda; there's a New rey wholecut in the Novegesse section, albeit punched. I've got them in black. there's also model 102139 in the standard LM line
