Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 677

post #10141 of 11070
FWIW I have a pair of dark brown Hiro cap toe oxford. Typically a UK 7.5 but had to size up to a UK 8. After 6+ hours on foot, my right pinky toe gets squeezed and a little crushed. It is normal for feet to swell throughout the day, right? Anyways, I have a low in-step and essentially flat footed, minimal arch. YMMV

By the sounds of it, Olfe in the same size would fit better since it is more of a gradual taper versus Hiro. So, @crstov you may consider the Olfe if you are worried about fit in the vamp / toe box.

I extend my appreciation to all the knowledgeable people on here who have already been a great source of assistance.

 

I am looking to purchase a pair of the Hiro last dark brown calf double monks (and possibly a second pair in black).

 

My foot measurement is 272mm in socks and Meermin has suggested an 8.5UK.  Today I tried on a pair of C&J 348 double monks in 8.5E which felt okay, but the 8E was a better fit (assuming they would naturally stretch a little bit).

 

I've seen another user on here say he wears 8.5UK Meermins and his foot measurement is 270mm.

 

Do you guys have any advice for me?  Anyone with experience between C&J 348 and the Meermin Hiro?


I like snug fits and I perfer 8.0uk for my 270mm foot. (but It is possible for my 270mm foot to fit into 7.5UK as well.)

 

8.5 or 8.0 UK will be correct for you. Likely but which is an crapshoot. If you like snug and start with 8.0UK

 

(All advice above is for the OLFE last. Which is an sexy hiro last :) )

the CM calf shoes, at least the ones I ordered, stretches a bit. So even if it's a bit snug, the shoe should fit nicely after a few wears.

Selling my Tan Country Calf double monks as I just haven't found the time to wear them and want some Carmina MTO's really.

I wear a snug 8D for my Park Avenues on last 5. I'm looking at buying a shoe with the hiro last, and was wondering if I should go 7UK or 7.5UK?. Meermin suggested 7UK, but I'm leaning more towards the 7.5UK as I'm worried the 7UK might be slightly small. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Usually:
AE5 Size -1 = meermin size (Olfe /Hiro)

 

AE5 Size 8 = OLFE/HIRO 7UK

This is the best guess 35/40 people agree that that fits them - From a poll previous posts I did a long ass time ago.

 

Most of the People that did not fit were D+/E width.

Instead of C/D width.

^ +1.  I sized down 1 whole size and it was a good fit.  I bought their classic line as my first Meermin shoe to try to get my size down - that way if it wasn't a good fit, I wasn't out a whole lot of money.  Might try their LM line next

Hey,

A google search for "pebble grain double monk" brought me to this thread. I'm wondering if Mermin is still making these from a few years back. A true beauty.

There no longer on the website. If not here who should I reach out to for an answer?

Thanks!

Suffice to say they had an instant sale.

Hiro in 8UK is more roomy than 5-last in 9UD.

Are there any non-suede group MTOs for Meermin at the moment?

post #10151 of 11070
Yes

There is a museum calf austerity going at the moment. I believe it's dark brown museum calf in either the olfe or park last.

Thanks!  Is there a separate thread, or someone in charge of this?

post #10153 of 11070
I believe sarteaga is running it, but there' no separate thread for it. He will give us an update when Pepe replies.
post #10154 of 11070

Thanks a lot - I saw a thread a about a blue museum austerity brogue but guessed that was stillborn!  Gold or brown I'm down for...

post #10155 of 11070
Thanks for the advice guys. I might go 8.5uk to be safe. I'm located in Australia so exchanges would probably cost me the value of the shoe in postage.

Edit: and I will definitely pay more attention to Olfe!
