Well, I contacted Meermin via Facebook and received a very prompt response - I think it took all of five minutes for Meermin to respond!Try contact support for custom order.
Same* heel stiffener.I see some great boots indeed, https://eu.meermin.com/products/101523-cognac-utah-e for instance.
I used to own a few pairs of Meermin shoes in the past (standard range, Linea Meastro, shell cordovan) but sold them all because their heel stiffeners killed my feet. Breaking the in seemed nearly impossible.
Has this been improved recently or do they still use the same unforgivingly unflexible heel stiffeners?
Its ThermoplasticOn a related note, is the heel stiffener actually pure plastic or celastic? I believe I've seen a teardown revealing plastic.
Any feedback on what is the quality of finishing and general quality of the shell on these would be like? This seems to be shell from Horween unlike the earlier one which was cheaper at 430 USD. This one is 600 USD.
There is a whole mix of shells in this MTO. Horween, Italian, and Heritage (cheapest option). I have now been using their heritage shell boots 1-2 times a week for the past few months and the quality is good. Finishing on my boots is very good. Compared to Horween shells that I have from AE, I don't see much difference. The heritage is a bit thinner than horween.Any feedback on what is the quality of finishing and general quality of the shell on these would be like?

Also- some examples which I have seen on Reddit have had quite horrible finishing on welt which is definitely not expected at this price point. Makes me hesitant to take q gamble on these though I have been lusting over the website pics.
