Thanks. I am thinking on getting this pair. Probably it the lighting when u took the pic, it looks darker than what I have thought. Possible to show when taken under natural light? Cheers!

Here's a pic I took of the cognac classic line oxfords at the Trunk Show in November. I have a few more here.

My wife and I were in Madrid in December and they didn't have the cognac/walnut whole cuts in here size so Sandro put in the order for them to be made and I also put in an order for the brown tassel loafers in the Ron last

 

 

The channel isn't closed on the goodyear welt on the women's pairs.

I was wondering if any one was interested in a MTO with Leaf Green Shell Cordovan.

 

In maybe a Olfe Last with a reverse stitch balmoral or regular balmoral or wholecut or something else, even a boot.

 

The leather color would be like:

 

 

And an example of reverse stitch is:

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

This was the first time I had seen reverse stitching and thought it was cool IDK if it as structurally as strong as a regular stitch. But it did look interesting. But it definitely hides the stitches at the expense of looking a bit more mushroomy.

 

If anyone is familiar with reverse stitching and knows any pros/cons for it I would like to know.

 

I also thought as you wear this it would get some pretty sick patina on that green leather. Depending on your shoe crème regimen. 

 

Some other green Shell cordovan pics I found (not Meermin):

Absolutely interested in Leaf Green Shell Cordovan!
Suggesting style: triple monk boots
Suggesting last: new chiseled last (similar to Olfe but more chiseled)
The boots will be something like the picture below but in different color...

FYI

I asked meermin if they had a midnight blue (like the eg/g&g) color, and they said no.

The leaf green swatch I got is pretty bright and a lot brighter than both shoes of mine you posted. The Carmina loden is probably the brightest I would go in terms of wearability

Where can I purchase Meermin shoes online besides the Meermin website?

This swatch you got is it from meermin? or some other manufacture?

Do you happen to have a picture of the swatch  (something that is true to the color?)

Interesting never seen this style before, pretty interesting

 

If we were getting monk straps I would have to get an boot b/c I don't trust the straps to hold my foot down to prevent heel slip. Laceup for me are generaly better.

 

Does any one know how long the straps at the buckles last? (I feel like they would break after an couple of years -- Ive never owned monk straps)

Does meermin make this style already or would then have to make new leather templates to make it?

 

------------------------------------------------------

Does anyone know if meermin has an medium green colored leather(darker) instead of leaf green(brigher)?

Does anyone know if I apply darker cream pigments to leaf green shell would it get an nice patina or would that ruin it?

A lot of these questions and other related questions in this thread can be answered best by Meermin themselves, as you'd get a more precise answer. pepe@meermin.es for MTO questions, luisa@meermin.es for general questions. This is more of a general comment than something directly aimed at you. No one knows better what Meermin can and cannot do than Meermin themselves.

 

The buckles of a well fitting monk do not come under much stress, so they should last as long as the rest of the shoe. Applying darker green cream might give a nice patina if you're skilled at that, but you won't end up with Loden green if that's what you're aiming for.

Right now, their website is the only place I believe.
