I tried researching the RON last with little luck, I took a chance that the RON last would be as my HIRO lasted shoes and found them to be a very similar fit albeit they are a chiselled last rather than the rounded HIRO. So no sizing up or down from my normal size worked for me.Just as an aside I have a pair of RON lasted and BEN lasted shoes from Meermin and they both seem rather more "pointy" in real life than the pictures seem to suggest especially the comparative last...

Anyone any idea how the RAM last fits in relation to the other Meermin Lasts in particular the Hiro & Ben lasts ??

I can understand using "vinegar" solution on glass shiny surfaces subjected to water like windows bathroom surfaces etc as the acid component in the vinegar cleans/reacts with the limescale and thus no streaky windows as that's what the acid is doing removing both the scale within the water and any other cleaning products that may have been used. But to use on leather shoes only subjected to water, road salt and other normal grime I'm afraid mine is a no thanks. Why would...
Cant see what the vinegar brings to the party to be honest ??!! Vinegar is generally 5% solution of Acetic Acid (Ethanoic Acid) so effectively your diluting it down to a 2.5% solution.

Warm/hot water would be a far better solvent to the rock salt effectively therefore cleaning better!!Old wives tale ??? I stand to be corrected........

I, for one, am pleased that DFWII takes the time to enlighten us all sharing his experience and know how even though he is semi retired. I don't feel preached to in the slightest along with many others who have questioned him on various shoe making topics. Long may that continue, his and others valuable experience notably Bengal Chay et al is more than welcome.RogerP .... As others have alluded to your story is now very very tedious!! Your contribution here and in other...
