Looking for some jodhpur boots sub $500. Would prefer sub $300 if there are decent pairs out there. Preferably black. Never had jodhpurs before but I love the look and the slip on slip off easy wear. Are Meermin's any good? They look great on the website for the money, but I have no experience with the brand. Or is it Carmina or go home?

Thanks,

Mine are from Trickers. Had them a few years. Solid and comfortable.
The Carminas look nice but were a ball ache to order and deliver when I was looking.
Meermins weren't vailable back then or they’d have been a possible choice. I have their Chelseas in suede.

A couple of years ago Meerimens quality was always spotty. However whenever I ordered something from Carmina I knew I was getting a good shoe or boot. Sometimes you do actually get what you pay for.

That's what I hear from the forums. Even at twice the price of Meermins, Carmina customer service and returns are a headache. Hear the same with Meermin, but the gamble is have that of Carmina. Are you liking your Meermin Chelseas?

Yeah my first pair of Meermins I think I had to send back for sizing but since then I have suede chelseas, polo suede loafers and snuff suede derbies now I have my fit dialled in. I think their customer service is likely much improved now they ship from New York so returns will be easier and no import duty (assuming you live in the US!)
