Any idea how long Meermin normally take to reply to emails? Sent a couple of emails (via their contact page) in the past 5 days and have not heard back from them. Does anyone have a proper email address for them?

Thanks. Oddly enough they replied about 5 minutes after you posting this.

Where's the cheapest place to get some red wing chukka's for a UK11?

I don't mind paying full price, but wondered if anyone had seen some red wings on sale anywhere.

I've had my eye on Meermins for a while but don't like the idea of not being able to return easily if they don't fit…

I'd go with .5; NDC sizing can vary a bit though

I'm after a leather slip on shoe, like vans but better quality. Any suggestions?

Anyone know how Margiela shoes (derbies) fit? Sneakers fit true, but not sure on regular footwear.

I have just put a pair of Alden cordovan longwings in burgundy on hold at Selfridges in the sale. They are selling them for £340 and i am wondering is this a good deal? Also does anyone who has a pair find them bulky. this is the pair http://tres-bien.com/brand/alden/longwing-cordovan-burgundy

I have those Aldens, as Duff said it's a great price.

And to answer your question, yes I find them to be particularly bulky. Wore some much lighter weight NDC's with my suit recently and they felt much more appropriate.

Depends what you want from them.

On a slightly different note I need to have mine resoled after wearing them twice, stashed them away in the shoe bags when they were wet and completely forgot all about them and they have cracked severely. That will learn me Sad
