Today Spanish budget brand Meermin premiere a factory seconds sale. On what seem to be planned as an annual event they offer up to 50% discount on lots of different models, with pairs that have failed the quality check and therefore end up as subs. This means that Goodyear welted shoes from €85 are up for grabs.
We now head into sale season for real, with Singles Day behind us and Black Friday next week. So expect some sales alerts the coming weeks. Meermin, with the company based on Mallorca and with factory in China, are one of the biggest brands for welted shoes in the lower price segment. Their main line shoes starts at €160 RRP, and the finer hand welted Linea Maestro goes for €260. Good prices already then obviously, now when they have a sale on their factory seconds prices obviously becomes very low, as mentioned from €80, although most are around €100.
Now with the price point they sell for at regular retail price this is shoes that goes rather quick through the factory and customers often find small stuff on their shoes, so the pairs that have been removed to not meet the quality control standard can have rather large issues in at least some cases, this one should be ready for. Meermin have listed the type of issues one can expect also with example pictures, which is a good and fair thing. Since sales are final, do know your size before ordering, happy hunting (the sale is found here). The sale ends November 21.
Dear Jesper Ingevaldsson!
I loved Meermin’s Factory Seconds Sale! When I followed the link, alas, everything sold out faster than expected! It’s a pity that only once a year! I remember on eBay there was a seller of factory marriage from Miermin. The principle of the auction and prices are at least 2 times cheaper.
the auction ran from Monday to Friday and was updated once a week! Did you know about this seller?
And no in the summer he disappeared. Maybe it’s not just a coincidence that he disappeared and there was a sale on Meermin’s website? He did not answer my letters. Maybe it is not visible due to regional restrictions – it used to be so – it was not shown to those from Russia and the CIS! Maybe he will answer your request – you are a world value! Here is the link to the store
Thanks for the answer!
Ruslan: I think that Ebay seller was Meermin’s own, at least closely affiliated. They stopped selling subs there to do these annual sales of it all instead. Maybe some stuff that doesn’t go this week will go up on Ebay afterwards.
