    Green, sweet. Even better than navy. OJ I'm sure they're not poop. I have to say I'm excited. The meteorologist just said it will snow on Monday. August dammit. So the boots are welcome.

    Snow? In August? Do you live above the Arctic Circle!?

    That's what they're saying but I'd not bet my money on it. Latitude wise around the same latitude as Stockholm.

    Btw, after seeing these pictures, I kinda want to make dressy boot out of it, as it looks way too nice for a bad weather boot. I suppose it's not possible anymore to put a leather sole on mine instead dainite?

    I think it'd still look dressy with the dainite sole, but could be wrong. Seems like you can't really tell when it's a darker-tone leather sole, except from the bottom.

    Shoot, I wanted the opposite: dainite on the lighter brown. Lol. I've committed financially and mentally to the double-sole now, though.

    I emailed Meermin a cpl of weeks ago about this and never got a reply, im still curious though, does meermin offer Burgandy cordovan as standard for MTO's, eg could I request the standard Shell boot they have on the website but in Burgandy? That plum musuem also looks great would that be a possibility?

    Yeah, I know, sorry man. But you have to agree, the boot looks way nicer than expected. Don't worry about it though, if it's not possible I'm completely fine with dainite.

    Didn't you expect them to look that nice? Glad you're pleasantly surprised!
    I emailed Pepe last night. I'll let you know what he says

    Let's just say I was having my doubts about Meermin for a while.

    Yes, their standard shell colours are Light Brown (cuero), Black and Burgundy. The seem to have sourced blue/green shell from another tannery so there's quite a good chance of some more obscure colours also being available.
