I am considering buyng a pair of their boots in tan country calf.
How would these handle the rough Norwegian winter? No matter how careful I am, they will have see their share of snow, ice, slush and salt...
Cheers and thanks to Pepe, both pairs are just the way they were suppose to be!
(sorry for the big pics)
I'm contemplating buying the dark brown calf Oxfords from the Classic collection. Does anyone have "real-life" pics of them, preferrably in combination with a whole outfit (pants hem + shoe at least)? Judging the pics on the website, the brown does not seem to be too dark actually. I wonder if that's just the combination of pic + my monitor settings or if they are really rather medium brown.
Thanks in advance & happy New Year!
If I may chime in, I bought a 7.5 UK in the brown suede tassel loafer on the Ron last and found it way too roomy. I have several other pairs in 7.5 UK in the Hiro last and they fit me perfectly straight away and get better with each wear. I'm a little annoyed because I asked Pepe before ordering the loafers if I should take the same size in the Ron last and he said yes. My experience tells differently. I tried to make the loafer work by having a good local cobbler remove the Meermin insole and replace it with an insert, but they just don't work. In fact, if anyone is interested in them, give me a holler. Aside from the insoles having been removed, they are pristine.
Thanks Konda, when I say perfectly it is with an insole with a reasonable sized arch built in. Unfortunately I'm yet to find a last that fits well without it.
Finally heard back from Luisa on 12/17 said they would be ready to ship 12/23...No word since then...
Thanks for the update. I'll give the Meermin the benefit of the doubt as I'm sure they are swamped with orders and trunk shows. Once they can catch up and can at least offer perceived better service then I will look at ordering a pair of shoes from them. Some folks have received shoes from them within a week while others have had to wait a month. For me, I'd rather not take my chances so I'll take my biz elsewhere for now. Let me know you when you have further updates sir.
