I'm a 10US/9UK and I took a 9.5 on the hiro last.
Any restocks coming in either the benchgrade or handgrade lines? Thanks in advance.
Hi All,   Besides Carmina, any other decent mens shoe boutiques/shops in Barcelona? My wife and I are here visiting for the next 3 nights thanks!
I just arrived in Barcelona like 3 hours ago LoL. The wife and I will pay a visit there tomorrow. The Madrid store already drained me but hopefully I can scrounge up some of my remaining spending money on another pair of shoes. Will report back to you shortly.
  Stopped by Meermin in Madrid while here on vacation. On the right is the 101341 Rapello Verde on the Hiro last UK9.5. Rather than going a full size down from my normal US10 size I only went down a HALF size. Quality is good for a 160 euro shoe before the VAT deduction but it does look like they sanded down the suede a bit too far in some areas of the shoe.

I know Meermin used to source from Ilcea Radica but last I checked they haven't mentioned where their latest museum calf was being sourced from. To be fair John Lobb and even Kent Wang mentions in their shoe descriptions where they source.

Pretty much it has to come from Horween LoL
