    So, to be clear, meermin hasn't actually made a shoe on the park last? I've searched as much as I could and all I could find was pictures of the plastic last. There are no photos of a shoe made on the park last yet?

    No park shoe has ever been made. Park is a new last. From what I hear its basically the olfe + chisel toe. BUT I have have no idea for sure

    IF YOU ARE GETTING IT YOU ARE TAKING A RISK WITH AN SHOE THAT HAS NEVER BEEN MADE BEFORE.

    this is mainly the reason that I do not know if I will be taking the park last. I may just play it safe with olfe

    Get in touch with terrorsquad for more up to date park info... Idk what he does be he may work for meermin somehow.

    So it looks all but certain from the votes for some of these options:

    1. Leather Soles
    2. Toe Box will not have a medallion (just a brogued captoe, like the pic) (Sorry p.Henrik [​IMG] )
    3. Copper Suede (reverse calf)

    4. Peaked Heal Counters
    5. Olfe/Park Lasts
    6. Adelaide form factor

    Looking which does look exactly like:
    [​IMG]
    Overall I really like it.

    Anyone else have any other options they can think they want. We have sometime since pepe's response time is so slow.

    Also here are the things that have been asked to pepe:

    1) Will you be willing to do this on the new chisel toe last "park"?
    2) Right now some members want Park, Olfe, and Hiro. Can we still get the group buy discount and get all 3 lasts? Or do we need to choose 2 or less?
    3) If you could list your suede colors that would be helpful. We are currently thinking about copper suede.
    4) If you various suede qualities could you let us know what they are? We would like to have the highest quality suede for this MTO.
    5) What will the pricing be? regular LM? 260EUR + Shipping?
    6) Some folks also are interested in an matching suede belt. Would you be interested in making this?

    If you feel anything else should be asked tell me ASAP. His responces are slow.

    Pepe sent first reply.

    Thanks for your interest & sorry for not having got back to you before.

    I confirm the reception of your MTOP group request.

    On Monday I’ll send you all the requested info.

    Thanks again for your interest.

    Leetpuma, Thanks again for organizing this. Just 2 more details I was thinking: 1). Metal tap toes (I find it much cheaper and cleaner to do it straight w/ Meermin the 1st time 2). Initial on the bottom sole - I've seen meermin do it w/ other MTOs Of course more than happy to pay extra for those I will pm you my email address separately Thanks again

    Quote:
    1) These can be done with ANY MTO But they upcharge 20 euro for the service. They will be flush with the sole.
    -- You will get to request this later in the ordering process
    http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2825

    2) These are done with free with every MTO. When the MTO goes through you will be asked for more info on this.
    -- On a related note you will also get to write an small thing on the window on the interior shoe lining.
