    This is the most interesting part:

    "This is partly because Meermin has a segment of its production in Shanghai. While some people wrongly characterize all Chinese production as being low quality, the fact is that some factories there have considerably improved. Though luxury-end production still remains nascent, mid-tier production such as this can be fairly decent."

    I think that helps explain the price point. Based on the pictures and comments I've seen on this thread, I don't think it would put me off, given the price.

    I put in a somewhat specific MTO request - will see what their reply is and if they're willing to take it on and at what price. Excited.

    You can ask but I wouldn't rely on since it's illegal.

    Just got a picture of the chukkas in mid-brown. Payment was sent about 30 seconds after seeing the photo.

    Can anyone advise if the dark brown nantes grain monks are as dark as they look online?
    If anyone has a picture of theirs, it would be greatly appreciated

    No, these are the "cuero", mid-light-brown. If you look at the picture you can see that they don't have a grainy leather.

    Does look great Christian!

    Is this a RTW shoe, i.e. is it availble for orders in various sizes?
    Standard configuration except for the leather (rubber sole, classic construction)?

    This is a RTW shoes but not listed on their site, if you send them an e-mail about it they can get it for you. If I were to make this an MTO I would use light-brown shell on the Ama last. :drool:

    Very handsome boots, congrats on getting them! Do they come with a leather or rubber/faux danite sole?
    (Looks very much like a danite sole from the photo).

    The photo is a tiny bit dark, but this should be the same calf cureo color as the longwing is availible in (confirmed in a mail from Sandro this morning):

    Other then the chukka Christian bought and the longwing above, this captoe oxford is also availible in cuero calf:

    Thanks. Sandro, one of the Meermin guys, informed me that it should be identical to the boots on their site, so I'm hoping they have rubber soles.
