Emailed with José yesterday and he said the New Ray translates perfectly with Carmina's Inca/Rain. Does anyone have real world experience?
As promised, my Meermin double monk review:
Outstanding. Sandro and Pepe were great start to finish, always getting back to me within a few hours of receiving my emails. Fit to received in under a week (Boston).
I have rather narrow feet (average arch). For me, I was true to size after converting to UK sizing. The shoes fit me well; I didn't note any causes of concern when walking around my home. Overall, they are comfortable.
Great looking shoe. Somewhat chunkier than I envisioned, but by nomeans bulky. I generally prefer "sleek" shoes; these are somewhere in the middle.
Right there with Alden and perhaps CJ (maybe slightly below).
I will buy again - get em while you can, tremendous cost vs. value. I mean you can't beat it. No one comes close.
I got the Meermin medallion-toe double monks on the New Rey last a couple of months ago in 9.5, & they were the right length, but VERY tight. A couple of weeks ago I got Carmina's wingtip bluchers in green shell on the Rain last in 9.5, & they fit perfectly. Based on this sample size of 2, I think that the New Rey is narrower. That's my 2-eurocents' worth of input.
