    Yeah thats strange,, when I enquired into some brown captoes in X size, I got a response the next day saying unfortunately that size was out, the next available size in stock was Y or the 30 day spiel. I thought that was pretty helpful.

    It took me about 20 days from my order started. And when my order was ready to ship i changed my order and took 15 days after that. All pretty close estimates.

    Also got the snuff suede loafers any one have any recommendations for suede care? I already have some scuffs. I'm pretty clumsy.

    Took me roughly 2 weeks from ordering to receiving these. I'm pretty happy with them, although they're slightly smaller than regular English eights. I'm sure they'll work just fine after I've walked a couple of blocks in them. I'll definitely try Meermin again. Maybe it's time to order now if I'd like mtm winter boots?

    I hate all of you that can fit in non-MTO sizes.

    That is all.

    Hello everyone,

    This is an update on my Meermin customs fee situation. I am the poster who sent the correct codes to Meermin. As of yesterday, I was contacted by Sandro to resolve the situation. He has offered me a $100 refund to cover the overage. I feel the overture was rather delayed, but still appreciated. I now consider the matter closed.

    Given this turnaround, I feel fine with taking another look at their shoes. Still concerned about the other issues discussed in this forum, but willing to take another look.

    You sound overly negative. Meermin seems to be more accomodating than most manufacturers out there.

    If you don't want to buy their shoes, then don't. You act like it is beneath you. You had a problem, they realized it, and fixed it. 90% of the people on this board would just be ecstatic that the problem got fixed. Meermin doesn't have to pay for your fees, it fact it probably made your shoes a net loss for them.

    ' I feel the overture was delayed' they weren't even liable or responsible for it in the first place, it was the couriers fault//wrong customs code. And Meermind fixed it when they didn't have to. How arrogant of you.

    There was much more to it than what you're saying. I think you're the one who's sounding arrogant, as you have the reading skills of a three year old, but the audacity to think you know the whole situation. Go back and read all the pages.

    I placed an order for the black cap toe and dark brown double monks in early June and they just arrived.
    They were shipped via FedEx and I didn't have to pay any sort of fee upon receiving them.
    I'm a 9.5D US and I got both in the Hiro Last 8.5UK and they fit well.

    Hope that helps someone!

    Why not just ship them straight to Mexico?

    Oh, cause the government protect all the shoemakers from Leon, Guanajuato. So I've heard stories in which they charge you up to 300% of the value of the product on import duties. So I don't want to take that risk. [​IMG]

    Ooya!! I thought maybe You were worried the federales would ghost them but that level of protectionism is worse! Puts VAT in perspective

    Yes. Good thing is they discount the VAT, so the price is super nice for the type of shoes. That why I asked what fee is charged later on. [​IMG]

    Think that's directed at the guy who thinks he's been charged no fees by FedEx when they actually invoice you after delivery
