We work very hard to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on Meermin website. However, since leather is a natural material, the tone may slightly vary from one pair to another.

Aside from that we cannot guarantee that any monitor will display colours in a completely accurate way.

Our core idea is to eliminate the retailer mark up and transfer the savings to you.

This is a concept that is only possible if we do sell our products exclusively directly to you, through our own Stores.

Traditionally Meermin used to sell at the best High End department Stores in Japan, where the prices were 4 times the ones we are selling today, and the shoes were the same ones. This was just due to the retailer & distributor mark up.

We are not confident in supporting this way of operating, since it is not good for the customer and neither for the brand, so we have decided to move our strategy towards the retailer-less model.

This way the production volume is lower, so we can focus more in improving our products quality.

Our products can be purchased in our online store and in our physical locations in NYC & Madrid. Please find the details below:

Meermin Shell Cordovan shoes are made using Shell Cordovan, made by a family owned tannery in the heart of Japan, following ancient methods. Full vegetable tanned made following a 10 month process where every shell is pit tanned, naturally air dried & glazed by hand in order to have a very transparent & characteristic finish. That is a quite long process but the result its totally worth it!

Shoes made with this beautiful leather are made to last & get more confortable over the time. Shoes with this precious leather will develop a deep patina over the time, that will add its very own special character.
