    Meermin Announcement

    Idk if this has been discussed before, but I just got this email from Meermin:



    Looks like with the arrival of their New York store, they’re going to allow customers who buy their shoes online to save some cash on returns by sending their shoes back to New York instead.

    Has anyone been to the NYC store yet? Maybe someone can report on a visit there.

    I stopped by on Saturday. It's a very simple (yet elegant) setup on the second floor of the building immediately behind the Apple Store in Soho. There's no signage apart from the buzzer, so you need to know where you're going. It's more of a pop-up than a flagship, but typical for newer companies in an expensive part of town and it's wise for them to start slowly.





    The staff was very attentive and seemed knowledgeable. As I don't own any of their shoes, I can't attest to their quality. The price point is very reasonable. The styling is pretty standard, if slightly more sculpted than American lasts.

    It's a welcome addition to the city. If Carmina comes to town, then I'll be in trouble.

    Thanks for the photos and review, they're very helpful. Looks like they have a lot of selection and sizes. I think the eventual free shipping and returns will go a long way towards getting new customers who have been turned off by the hassle of international shipping. Also Carmina has been open in NYC for a few months, they have a very nice location.

    I must say, nice choices for furniture though. I may have to pop in next time I'm in the city for work.

    How are the prices compared to the Website?

    I'm looking at Black Calf shoes that are $175 and the cheapest shipping option is $35 for a total of $210.
