    Damn, nearly $45 for shipping! So a pair would be 150 Euros + 35 euros for shipping, correct?

    u are close, but I believe they are also VAT free to ship outside of Europe, so u are looking at 18% to 20% discount on the $150 plus shipping. :slayer::slayer:

    Wooooo you're my new favorite person. So being in New England, suede is a no-no? I am sad - their suedes are beautiful looking.

    I wear suede in New England. And I vouch for the beauty of Meermin's suede offerings. I got a pair with the studded rubber sole. Haven't worn them in inclement weather yet, but I probably would.

    I think suede with rubber soles works best in the rain. I spray mine with waterproof stuff (got mine from Camper - supposedly better for the environment) and always brush them.

    Its my opinion that clothes .. and shoes in particular look better "worn". Obviously with respect and due care however I wouldnt be so afraid of a bit of water on the suede (infact mine beads water off)

    I use the Collonil spray protector and have no problems with suede at all, dont know what all the fuss is about regarding suede its just as good in bad weather as calf !!

    Received my black cap toes today, and WOW; I already love them.

    First impressions:
    Everything was perfect when it arrived, even the smell. The leathers feels good, but only time will shoe how it wears, and I'll update my posts after some wear with new photos and a second review.

    Fit:
    These are size 7.
    I'm a UK 7 in C&J 348 (Lowndes) which fit close to perfect. I would say these fit quite snug atm, but will after a while end up close to the 348.
    I also have a pair of AE FA 5 last in US 8 which are a bit on the large side and I need a thin insole for a good, but not perfect fit.

    They're undergoing some conditioning over the night before they're being polished tomorrow, almost can't wait!

    Congrats on your captoes. I've got the same model, in the same last and even the same size, and so far it's aging well :)

    I'm still surprised at how sturdy the soles are. I usually wear the toes on my soles quite fast, but these are taking quite a beating.

    Looks good, thanks for the great photos. Really impressive what they can offer at such a low price!
    I'm hoping to receive my Single Monks on Monday. I'm really looking forward to it because that will be my third, and hopefully final pair of Meermin. The first pair I received were the suede wholecuts. Unfortunately they were too small and the outsole was seperated from the welt. I exchanged them for the penny loafer, but those were also a bit too tight, and I didn't really like the model. So now I'm in the process of exchanging them for the suede single monks.
    Haven't heard anything from Sandro yet about the shipment of the single monks, but I'm sure he's just very busy since he has always been a pleasure to deal with. Otherwise I'll just have to wait a little bit longer.
    I would definitely recommend Meermin, not just because of the great quality you get for the price, but also because of the great support you get. It is really nice to be in direct contact with someone when ordering shoes, definitely with these people! I really hope they can keep this up.

    Look very nice! Impressive for the price.

    Waiting for my first Meermin's, dub monk in dark brown suede. Planned delivery Tuesday coming week.

    So Christian, I did not follow your age advice :D
