DavidGD, can't answer question 1.

what do you mean by better? if you mean value, probably, but you have to wait and pay customs, which will increase your cost. Not sure why you don't get hit with customs with Herring.

If you mean quality, I seriously don't think so, Meermin's quality is at best in line with those Herrings, while been handwelted.

But I do like the lasts and designs of Meermin better.

I believe I don't have customs through Herring due to them shipping with Royal Post and not FedEx.

I truly think the quality between the Herring Premier line and the Meermin LM line will be pretty darn close, and me not being a shoe expert or aficionado I won't be able to tell much of a difference. So quality aside I think fit and style are my biggest factors. Fit being my biggest worry. Since I know my Herring Churchills fit perfectly its easy for the guys over at Herring to help me with other models, so that simplifies my Herring choices to just style. With Meermin, I like a lot of their styles, but am worried about how their lasts will fit. Does this make sense?

I found the Rain shoes (a captoe oxford) to be much stiffer than the Meermin shoes at first, but breaking in nicely. The Hiros (a suede double monk, a suede captoe oxford, a grained captoe oxford, and calf austerity brogue) to be very comfortable across my toes straight away. Like they say, everyone's feet are different!


Interesting. How wide is your forefoot? I know I had a normal heel and a wide forefoot.

So a MTO costs (with a base price of 260 euros) 260 euros + 100 euros for a total of 360?


thanks


Yes. Unless you can buy 6 or more then there is no MTO up charge. (That is why their are many group buys in this forum)

MTO real cost will be = 260 + 100 + Customs fees + Shipping
MTO cost in the US is someting like = 260/1.21 + 100/1.21 + ((260+100)/1.21)*.08 + 35

All numbers about are euros

Yup, that's like thee exact formula I have in my spreadsheet. I just multiply it by the exchange rate (just put the dollars per euro in the first cell) and voila. I use 8.5% since someone told me that was the rate.

Calf / Same Style Last ($490 at 1.37 dollars per euro)

=(((260/1.21)+(100/1.21)+35)*$A$1)+((((260/1.21)+(100/1.21))*$A$1)*0.085)

Museum Calf / Same Style Last ($539)

=(((300/1.21)+(100/1.21)+35)*$A$1)+((((300/1.21)+(100/1.21))*$A$1)*0.085)

Calf / Different Last ($552)

=(((260/1.21)+(150/1.21)+35)*$A$1)+((((260/1.21)+(150/1.21))*$A$1)*0.085)

Museum Calf / Different Last ($601)

=(((300/1.21)+(150/1.21)+35)*$A$1)+((((300/1.21)+(150/1.21))*$A$1)*0.085)

Could be more efficient but I'm an excel noob.

Completely agree...why should I be chasing down someone to give my money away. Very unfortunate but it looks like I'm going to have to go to Vass to get my museum calf

They have updated their website with a couple of additional models now.

I ordered these a couple weeks ago, and on monday they will be mine.
