    As PhiPsi32 said, these are unlined, so they give quite a bit. Perhaps it's aesthetically undesirable for my feet to stick out slightly, but I can assure you they're comfortable. If I went with a larger size, I guarantee I'd have heel slip. They're the same size as my AE Strands and PAs on the same last (both lined), and both of those are comfortable and not constricting (though they admittedly fit slightly different than the Neumoks).

    Yes it is. Appears to be more than fair quality for the price.

    ^^ I've read that they run a half size big than strands and fifth avenue's. I'm a 8 in the strand and fifth avenue, and I'm 99% sure I"m going to pick up these bad boys just don't about the sizing

    Awesome! I love these and the belt to match. Do they fit TTS?

    Thank's. I think they do fit TTS. Used them for the evening yesterday with quite a bit of walking and standing involved (was at a concert with the 80'ies dinousars Whitesnake...) and they were very comfortable. I am typically a "small" 8UK (mening that I have some roomy boots such as AS last 87 on 7.5), but with a high instep. Wear 8 in C&J 337, AS 109 and Carmina Rain comfortably. 8.5US in Alden Barrie (a bit roomy) and Plaza lasts.

    The value proposition is incredible. Shoes are €160 and belt €45, VAT included.

    Trying to decide between Alden's Tan Suede Longwing and Snuff Suede Longwing.

    Thoughts either way?

    Personally I would go with the tan suede. I got lots of compliments on those when I had them (had to sell since they were too big).

    How does one go about getting the VAT back from Meermin? I understand they're not in the habit of deducting it at purchase for those not in the EU?

    Wouldn't know. I am within the EU.

    My best understanding is that the VAT refund must be processed before the product leaves the country.

    Just wanted to subscribe to this thread and say good work guys.

    eta: Does anyone else have as much suede as they do non-suede? I'm 2-2 and I have another suede and another calf pre-ordered so it will be 3-3 in a few months.

    My collection is 3 non suede (2 calf, 1 shell) and 3 suede at the moment. I like suede, but will be focusing on expanding my shell collection in the future.
