My Meermin 2nds. You can see a little piece missing on the sole which I am not happy about. Trying to get them to pay for the cobbler repairs on that since it wasn't mentioned in ebay description or in the pictures.

 

Sorry which piece of the sole is missing? Are you referring to the corner of the heel which has been removed?

Lol if he is talking about that, it is called an gentlemen's notch and its supposed to be there. Keeps your shoe from snagging on your pant leg.

Most classy shoes have em.

New Ray is an B width hiro/olfe is C. You DO NOT want the new ray. You may want to size up to an 9UK or go with an roomier last. But do not pick an thinner last.

So I just ordered an pair.

 

For customs to the USA/Texas what should I be expecting? For about $250?

 

Also how will Fedex contact me to make me pay the customs fees? Did Meermin somehow give my info to them?

Fedex will deliver you an envelope that details customs fees (if there are any, Fedex frequently gets hit). You will be required to send payment to them

So does that mean my package will get delayed from the expected delivery date as well?

 

I should have asked meermin to give me anyone but fedex :(

We need an Meermin proxy that send us shoes as "gifts" from Spain so we do not get killed in customs. 

We could pay him like half the expected custom's hit.

No, FedEx usually expedites the process and sends you the bill afterwards, plus a $10-ish "forwarding fee" to pay the customs for you as the package goes through

oh That's nice of them. I am surprised they do that since now they are on the hook for the fees paid.

like if I had the package shipped to my employer or something. (Using an alias/fake name for shipping) idk how they would ever pin the charges on me after I picked up the package

I PMed him a couple days back and the status is still in progress with Pepe.

Remember we just had the Chinese new year too :)

He was also inquiring as to if we could get terrors chiseled last added in addition to hiro/olfe.

 

So its going but slow. I however don't mind :)
I just ordered my first practice pair from the classic line. So I need that to come in for sizing reasons.

Sweet, thanks for the update leet.  I don't mind its going slow just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed any emails.

 

I keep checking the meermin website each day waiting for them to update it with the new styles...

These are seconds and you're complaining about a disfigurement and trying to get meermin to pay for it?

They're seconds for a reason...

Now that would be awesome! Just for interest here in South Africa we get hit with 40% duties on the value + 14% VAT on the total including the duties. Brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it
