    Got an e-mail back from Pepe today. He indicated that they should have leathers in various other colors soon.

    Just a quick question, do Meermin charge more for shipping if you include shoe trees in your purchase?
    e.g. Shipping 2 pairs of shoes to Asia is 40eur. If I also purchase 2 pairs of shoe trees together with the shoes, will they incur additional shipping charges?

    I was charged 35 EUR for one pair with trees to America.

    When do they notify you that you have to fill out these forms? When the shoes arrive into the states? Also, how do they notify you? Via email ? My shoes have been shipped already but they've been in Paris for a few days already so I'm wondering if I forgot to do something from my end.

    Thanks for the reply, seems like there isn't a surcharge for the extra weight of the trees. Good to know. :)

    Mine come in on monday, I can't wait. However I did get hit with a $73 duty charge on these so they are coming out to be around $240 CAD which is a bit more that I thought they would be.

    Mine shipped out fedex today. I'll be curious how much time they take and what duty I get hit with in the end.

    Got the FedEx email on 10/5; Meermin was the other recipient. Returned both LACEY and 5xxx forms on 10/8. Status of the tracking number indicates "Clearance Delay" with package at Newark. Package released 10/17 and I should receive it by today. Will know if I am hit by some ridiculous FedEx/custom charge.

    To the guys with more experience with Meermin, how is the general fit? I have the image of lasts but can anyone liken some of the narrower lasts to another maker?

    This. I've been considering ordering a pair, but tacking on $75 worth of duty charges, plus filling out a bunch of customs forms... At some point, it's just not worth it.

    There should be a sticky guide for ordering Meermins :)
