wow, I think I am going to place an order of this pair instead of AE's Park Ave. Any recommendation as to who should I contact for buying?

I've got a pair in black UK 10 to get rid of :P

 

Just use the link off the meermin.es page, they tend to be pretty good about getting back to you under a day.

if you read this blog http://dieworkwear.com/post/16011578554/affordable-european-shoes-meermin

it says that

Carmina and Meermin. Members of the Albaladejo family own both companies, but the relations stop there. The two hold different products, are owned by different people, and act as different operations.

So I guess they are simply owned by the same family but has completely different operations.

Fit reasons. While others rave about the Hiro last, it seems to be a bad fit for my foot. I find myself needing more width in the toebox. Aside from that they're great :)

Just got my Meermins in on the Olfe last.  I wear 11.5 D US (e.g. on the AE 5 last) and ordered the 10.5. So I went down one full size from my US size. They fit a bit snug, but in a good way. The toe box is perfect for my foot. The sizing was on Jose's suggestion after sending him measurements of my foot, based on a pencil drawing.

This is the 12153-Y style in dark brown suede.  The color is more accurate on their website.

Like most everyone else, I think these are great quality for the price.  And the customer service was superb.

Exactly. But to me, 2nd brand implies that they are in fact produced by Carmina.

2ghouls: nice shoes.

from the pictures that I have been seeing through out the tread I have to agree that they are pretty well made and the customer service seems to be very good as well.

that being said, if my AE 2nds Jefferson turns out to have too much defect then I will simply return it and order a pair of the dark brown cap-toes or some other balmorals.

They are not made yet, I'll probably order them in the middle of July and will therefore not receive them until mid-autumn. The plan is making them look a bit like the RL Darlton shortwing.
post #972 of 11794
Thanks, my idea is to order by them a pair similar to these Alden shoes, in the same dark burgundy shell cordovan colour ...

Has someone who's had their Linea Maestros for a good length of time comment on aging?
