Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 480post #7186 of 153828/16/13 at 1:45ampost #7187 of 153828/16/13 at 5:46ampost #7188 of 153828/16/13 at 11:34am
They look absolutely stunning. Already seriously considering an mto oxford version of that light tan and red lining combo for next spring/summer.
Personally I am yet to be dissapointed by Meermin. But then again I've only ever purchased one pair (LM).post #7189 of 153828/16/13 at 11:56ampost #7190 of 153828/16/13 at 12:55pmpost #7191 of 153828/16/13 at 3:58pmpost #7192 of 153828/16/13 at 4:25pmpost #7193 of 153828/16/13 at 4:28pmpost #7194 of 153828/16/13 at 7:03pmpost #7195 of 153828/17/13 at 9:33ampost #7196 of 153828/17/13 at 1:57pmpost #7197 of 153828/17/13 at 2:02pmpost #7198 of 153828/18/13 at 12:28amGoing to order two pairs and take the leap
I don't own a proper pair of brown shoes so I thought these two would fill the void nicely. I already have a pair of black cap-toe that I love very much and has similar shape. Also already own a pair of chocolate suede chukkas
Classic line in Hiro last
Handgrade in the New Rey last
Do you guys think the colors and shoe are too similar? I wanted a darker brown for suits and the Classic line did not offer one except the one with the medallion on the cap-toe that I am not fond of.
I take 8.5US or UK7.5 .. should I size TTS? I think a 7.5 in both will be fine, and I do not have a slim foot FWIW.
Also, I will be ordering from California. Any heads up would be appreciated!
I had to look through more photos but it seems Classic line has this in dark brown
Initial photos are like a medium brown. Not reassuring lolpost #7199 of 153828/18/13 at 12:40am
Yeah buying brown online is always tricky, the newer pics were meant to more accurately reflect the products so I am hoping its the dark brown in the newer pics as I agree with you that the initial pics look like a medium brown. I guess the beauty of brown is you can always darken it with polish etc, although not ideal. To answer your question though yes I believe there is sufficient difference between the country calf in your first pic and any of the dark browns you may be considering.post #7200 of 153828/18/13 at 2:04amQuote:Originally Posted by Osiris2012

Fwiw the sample boot pics I posted a few posts back show a direct comparison between LM light and dark brown, albeit in an unfinished state.
