    Well their LM lines are hand welted which is more a sentimental upgrade than having any true quality effects (as far as I'm aware though I do believe it results in a sturdier insole. - if I'm wrong please correct me), its really just preferable as its so darn rare nowadays. The Linea Maestro line has much nicer looking sole work and general finishing than the classic range and I believe their leather is sourced from some of the tanneries that supply makers like Alden. I'd say if you have the money to upgrade from the classic collection go for it but from what I've seen so far (with a couple of exceptions) the classic collection is of high enough quality to satisfy you if you're not hugely into footwear... and you'll have a pair of shoes that look better than most men's as you wanted.

    Ps dammit Pepe send me my shoes now!!! *sulk*

    Anyone managed to get a response from Jose or Sandro these few days? I've made my payment on Thursday and thus far not provided any shipping information yet.

    Bloke I ordered on Thursday and received a reply Saturday morning. Meermin then communicated with me several times throughout the day. No word on shipping, so maybe we have to wait until Monday.

    The wait is torturing.


    Sandro and Jose will exchange direct emails with you once you've submitted the contact form.

    Jose estimated that I would receive my boots in 15-20 days. That was in the beginning of June. The wait is torturous

    Which line you ordered? That duration is plausible for MTO orders.

    these were ordered in March with a delivery date of June. Honestly, i think after the SF surge, everything, all the orders including my shell jodhpur from LM line got pushed back. thanks SF!

    I paid for the suede double monks ten days ago and have not heard a peep since. This is despite having been told they would be posted last week, and also despite my having gotten in contact to ask why I haven't heard anything.

    Just take it easy, Meermin is clearly dealing with insufficient staff regarding the sudden jump in demand for their shoes, which is totally understandable. Sure, they can, and probably will hire more, which will end up pushing up the cost and everbody knows what that leads to? Yeah, just calm down, they will arrive.

    With all due respect, given that none of us has their sales records at hand, I wouldn't say that that is clear at all.

    I am not unreasonable and would be fine with waiting patiently if I had heard anything at all.

    I'm sure you'll hear something from them eventually. It just takes a little longer right now. I also had to wait three days for an answer, where I only had to wait a few hours some weeks ago.
    I think they're just very busy at this moment, and that's understandable since they're getting a lot of orders.
    And how we know how much orders they're getting? We can't be sure of course, but if you just look at the order numbers you can see they're getting a lot of orders because that number is increasing rapidly.

    In fact, Meermin's rate of response was exceptionally fast during inquiries before the purchase. It was only after the payment, things started slowing down.

    Looking at their cordovan lineup...

    Beveled fiddle sole on LWBs just seems a bit overdone...

    I hadn't thought of looking at the order numbers, though I've only ordered once so don't know how much use this would be to me in judging the rate of purchases.

    I even wondered whether their store got smashed up in the recent civil unrest in Madrid or something, or, at the height of my desperation, whether it was possible that the shoemakers could be unionists or something.


    This mirrors my experience, precisely.

    Can only agree with the above posters that there seem to be a significant wait time for e-mail replies with Meermin currently, esp when compared to a few weeks ago.

    I recall getting my shoes some 2-3 weeks ago, trying them on and realizing I would need an exchange for smaller size. I sent an e-mail asking about returns and exchange and got an answer within (literally) 7 minutes.

    In stark contrast, the last week or so the response time has been 4-5 days. Maybe partly my own fault as I kept asking about any inventory not displayed on the website...
