    Wow, you really do try to say something negative every chance you get. In actuality, the medallions are both straight and any appearance otherwise is distortion from the Iphone picture. The medallions are not perfect, though. It's not very noticeable in the picture, but the right shoe medallion uses larger holes and is more spead out than the medallion on the left shoe. There were also finishing issues when they arrived, but Saphir cordovan creme has done wonders for the finish.

    I think you are wrong. Medallion on left toe is totally off centered, not due to lasting but during closing...

    Alright, I took another picture from a different angle to prove this is wrong and it turned out the same. I now see what you mean. The medallion is centered the same on both shoes, but the tip veers off towards the outside of the shoe on the left shoe. Oh well, if it took me five months and an extreme close-up picture of the shoe to notice it. I'm fine with it.

    I was starting to get the same feeling as when I read about my health symptoms online... in my mind, the comment on my order asking about shoe trees was turning into wasted money and a customs nightmare. So I emailed Meermin. Louisa responded within a couple of hours and told me not to worry: the shoe trees were removed.

    Lovely. I have worn mine about 15 times and it is one of the shoes that has gotten me the most compliments.

    Some people have even asked me to do another MTO for the same model in the same colour.

    I so badly want this Carmina shoe, but am not fond of the price:

    Hmmm... may have to look at a Meermin MTO in Tan Scapa or Light Brown... temptations.

    These are really lovely. I'm after a pair of austerity brogues in burgundy but they're proving hard to come by. These are a MTO right? How much did they come to? Calf or shell? How long did they take?

    It's a small picture, but from I see the shoe looks stunning. Where is it to be found and what is the price?

    They were a MTO that I am so upset that I missed!

    The Austerity Brogue on the Olfe last is available in black on their website. No word about other colors, but I'm sure they're in the works.
