    Avoid Meermin is my opinion. I owned several pairs, and sold them all due to lots of break-in pain and stiff leather and heel stiffener issues. Also, there are lots of quality complains, check out the meermin thread.

    If you are looking for not too expensive quality shoes take a look at (especially during sales): Carlos Santos (a fine pair of shoes, Skoaktiebolaget), Yanko (Skolyx, Patine.pl), Cheaney (Herring, Ebay where you can find interesting sample shoes) or even Crockett and Jones which go for 60% off at some Dutch retailers a few times a year (Dungelmann for instance).

    They had to redone the HW inseaming but Meermin did a great job here. 20190112_222144.jpg 20190112_222213.jpg

    Quite right .. their texture is pretty awesome.

    Bought them off the bay and they look and fit a ton better than my MTO Enzo. Go figure ..
