Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 663

post #9931 of 11075

Does anyone know if the brown museum calf oxford will be added to LM?

post #9932 of 11075

Received my first pair of shoes from Meermin earlier today. Hoping they will soften up nicely when breaking them in, and I'm pretty happy with them overall... Or I was untill I found the envelope from DHL with an invoice for 89 (I live in Norway, but the odd thing about it though is that the price listen on the invoice from DHL is NOK 1 431 (currently 173), and not the NOK 1 294 (currently €156) that I paid). Which stings, but hey! New shoes!

 

Edit. I should add that I paid €132 for the shoes, down from €160 (less shipping) since Norway is outside of the EU.

It is DHL that converts the currency, not Meermin, and their rate is as a result higher than what you normally would get.

Does anyone have a pair from the Classic Line and Linea Mestro line that could state if the Linea Mestro line is definitely worth the extra cost?

I like the fact that some of the Classic line shoes come with rubber soles for those less than desirable weather days, but if the leather isn't nearly the quality of the LM line, then I'd just stick with the LM line.

Finally got my Meermins today. Very pleased.

 Doesn't look like the tan grained calf... Where can I find such a mid-brown double monk? :)

To be honest, I've never seen a pair of new shoes this stiff.
What day did you get to the trunk show? Maybe the ones you tried on were tried on by a lot of people. The shoes that I tried on at the trunk show had no issue with stiffness that I could tell though and I was there within the first hour.

I like rubber soles as well.

 

But leather soles are easier to resole. To compromise you should go to an cobbler and ask for an rubber toppy. This is an thin rubber sole that is very very hard wearing. Vibram is an good brand of toppy.

 

The toppy is glued to the leather sole. And can be replaced every 1 to 2 years making resoling much more infrequent.

Use fedex next time, 400 nok invoice on classic dub monks. :-)

I got these on eBay. They were listed as "light brown" but don't look like the light brown on the site.

I asked a while ago about Mos sizing. I wear an 8.5 in Rui and 9 in Hiro. Meermin recommended I wear a 9 in Mos. I guess Rui runs a bit large?

From the factory second shop?

Anyhow, they look nice! :cheers:

I got my pair of black cap toe oxfords from the classic line today. They were also very stiff, can barely flex with my hands. I also believe my left shoe is another size than the right one, couldn't fit my shoe trees in none of the shoes but there's a difference of how much that is sticking out.

I assume I'll have to contact Meermin.

Does anyone here have any experience with quality of the LM line vs Yanko?

At yanko prices i would just buy from carmina. Less worries all around. Meermin is some what cheaper than both.
