    I really am not following what the fuck you're talking about. Meermin doesn't offer a Johdpur. Meermin doesn't offer a double-monk boot. At least, neither of them on their site. These are both designs catering to your whim, am I wrong?

    Just ordered a pair of light brown double monks for myself and single monks for my dad. Let's hope this goes quick haha.

    ups thanks must have missed it!

    as of the guy who was asking to compare them to other brands of shoes... I have 4 pair of "smart" shoes , 2 church's(post prada acquisition) , 1 meermin , 1 ed green stolen to my uncle ...

    Beside EG who clearly plays in another league I'd say I like better Meermin than Church's, are way more confortable and they're better looking on the feet. In terms of construction quality I'm no expert but they look pretty similar wich is odd considering church's retail price is 550 euro and Meermin 160!

    If like me you are looking for a good pair of shoes and you can't spend much I'd say Meermin is defenetly the way to go... I'd love to try Ed At Al but I'm scared of shitty Italians customs!

    maybe thats were we differ, I dont think they look narrow at all. its difficult to gauge the toe shape with that angle. i think you need a top down view to make that determination

    Its deceiving, but Ben last is far from wide or roomy. It is a narrow/slim last akin to JL 8000, G&G TG73, EG 82.

    chogall do you own a pair of Meermin shoes on the BEN last? If you do, maybe you could take a picture from above?
