Meermin is coming on

It's not that there was anything wrong with the "Hiro" last that Meermin built their previous chelsea boots atop, but for those accustomed to the Italian brands it was hard not to see it as ever so slightly rounded and stubby. For that reason the new "Elton" last boot is particularly welcome—at $220, it brings most of the Ferragamo steez at less than half the price.

American fans of the label who prefer not to make an educated guess on sizing when ordering from Spain are being rewarded this year as Meermin opens its first store in Chelsea, NYC. A new US-based warehouse should speed delivery time and hopefully cut costs.
