    I'm not too keen on that white-black-grey stingray colour, but with some black cream applied I could picture myself owning a pair. Does anyone know if stingray responds well to black creams?

    Looks like New Rey. Is this an MTO finish? It only seems like they've got dark brown and black listed on the site.

    They are New Rey- great spotting.

    Not MTO, they were actually in their tumblr before the website was up and running. I thought i had missed out as i emailed around the time that he said he had stopped taking mail orders, but he emailed back and said they were in stock. The model number 10164- Linea Mastro Captoe Semi-brogue Oxford.

    By off- do you mean off centre? Might just be the angle- in real life they look ok to me (disclaimer: I am a novice!). Very pleased with them. In fact- I had thought about buying a pair of carminas next but these might do my shoe fetish for a while...

    I've tried one on briefly but i will put a more comprehensive post up soon.

    Im not a great one to ask as I am only new to my sartorial journey so cant compare (I have a pair of G&G Rothschild but havent officially worn them yet either!)

    Picked these up today. Size 11 on the Rui Last.

    Very pleased with them. For the $220 or so AUD I paid for them, including the 50 euro delivery, I'm pretty impressed. Seem to compete with 1880 Loake in construction, but nicer leather by some. Will report back on their break in/wearing once I get a chance.

    Just so that I understand you right now, if one chooses a shoe that is not available on their website but on their tumblr, Meermin won't charge you the extra cost (+50€) for the MTO? That would mean that you payed 250€ for that specific shoe without trees and shipping although the shoe isn't available on the website?

    Awesome shoe btw, considering something like that on the New Rey last, but have to figure out my size first. What does Meermin call that color?

    Ive grabbed the colour from the order form- Im assuming the colour is dark brown calf although its clearly got red/tan in it. I dont know what the colour is!

    Upper Leather: Naturcalf Cuero (Tannerie d'Annonay - France)
    Lining Leather: Dark brown Calf

    Im not sure what the procedures are now as the website wasnt up when i ordered. Im sure Pepe will prob start to put more shoes on the website as time progresses. Got home and tried them on. Love them. The hell is a bit tight, but i dont have wide feet so it isnt a problem. I cant really compare them with any other know brands (my second pair of grown up shoes!) such as Crockett and Jones, Carmina etc so i cant really help people there to be honest.

    The leather looks and feels great on my feet and i guess thats all that counts. Excuse the bad photos- tried do them quickly so my GF didnt catch me dressing up and taking photos to put on the internet!

    Well I'm definitely keeping them now as they went for their maiden voyage last night. I have to say I like them a ton. It's really hard to get a sense of what the stingray is like until you wear it out at night. And it's truly spectacular. The photos I posted earlier really don't capture at all what the shoes look like in a locale with nice evening lighting, or strolling on the streets at night. Definitely my favorite evening shoe on nights when I don't mind attracting a little attention with some sparkly shoes.
