Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 637

post #9541 of 12096
For those interested in the loden string loafers, Gentlemen's Footwear has stock coming in a week or so. Not sure on pricing but it shouldn't be much more than the Meermin would be and you can get it now.

They have an affiliate thread here with more info: http://www.styleforum.net/t/350127/gentlemensfootwear-com-carmina-drakes-cappelli-finamore-official-affiliate-thread/1500_100#post_6992236

2) Are you requesting a Sky welt (or even norvegese if the price is not too hefty?) for maximum water/snow-resistence?

Now we're talking. Does anyone know if Meermin can do Norwegian? Normally not a fan of it on dress shoes, but it'd be bad ass on a true winter boot.

I have PM'ed all those who have shown interest, but if I missed you let me know. I am waiting to collect enough requests to ask Pepe for some clarifications. Keep posting if you are interested or just PM me and I will forward the details I have.

 

Norwegian could be an option, but my quote right now is for GY1.

DL, do you have a picture of the what you want the boots to look like?

This?

With the lining in this picture?

Ironist,

 

Exactly, I originally received a quote for the leather combination similar to the first image with shearling lining. I will forward you the details. I am compiling everyone who is interested, and I will be sending Pepe a condensed list of questions.

 

At this time I do not have any images from Meermin, but I think they will be great!

Guys I am interested too. What do you think of full commando soles with norwegese welt like the meermin boot bellow.

I would be in with no Norvegese (despite my heriditary).
post #9550 of 12096
No Norvegese for me. I tried to get interest in that exact model (different leather) a few months ago with no response. I like that boot but not glomming the Norvegese onto the concept as it stands. Too much.

No problemo, I throw that in for the sake of the discussion. maybe we can make two models one with one without Norvegese, I think we need 15 orders for certain kind of soles but not necessarily for the same leather. I know Meermin has accommodates us before. In any case let's keep discussion going I am definitely interested in Dark Brown Grain/ Dark Brown Suede combo.

Ideal for this coming winter.....
post #9553 of 12096

I only have a quote for the GY1 at this point, I will be sending questions to Pepe but I would like to compile all of the requests to minimize the number of emails sent.

 

As for the full commando sole I would be out as I think it to be too chunky for my tastes. 

 

Keep the PM's coming as soon as we have 15 we I will send another email to Pepe!

 

And we are already at 13 :nodding:

Fellow gentlemen,

 

I'm happy to announce that we already have 9 people interested in the half-brogue copper suede shoe! I figured I´ll post some more amazing pics of the Vass OEII suede shoes that we are doing to see if we can get even more people:

 

Here is the correct specs:

GMTO 1:
Style: similar to Vass Old English semi-brogue cap toe!
Upper: COPPER suede
Last: Choice of Olfe and Park last
Sole: Single
Lining: browinsh to match rest of shoe
Eyelets: 5
Brogue: Same size as the picture
Extras: Choice of text in pegs under sole, text window  in lining and flush metal toe caps.
Price: My guess 260 euro + shipping

 

 

 

 

and another 7 interested in the olive suede string loafer!

Complete specs:

Style: Similar to Carmina string-tie loafer
Upper: Olive/Loden suede
Last: Ron? Have asked Pepe if there any other lasts for loafers that he recommends
Sole: Single
Lining: brownish or forest green
Eylets": 2 (Meermin usually have 3 but I like 2 better)
Extras: Choice of text in pegs under sole, text window in lining and flush metal toe caps.
Price: My guess 260 euro + shipping

Here are better pics

 

 

 

 

I´m still waiting for a reply from Pepe to get exact costs and IF they can source the requested suede colours.

The waiting game continues, thanks for showing interest in the GMTOs!

David,

I am fine with either medway or ridgeway soles. However can you ask pepe if he is willing to split orders assuming we all take the same soles. What would be a minimum number of pairs for norvegese welt? Usually 6 if past orders were any indications.

have we decide about the colors yet? dark brown grain with dark brown suede?

Will entire boot be fur/shearling lined or just shaft?

Would it be possible to get Pepe to take a pictures of dark brown grain and dark brown suede swatches next to each other.
