Emailed Meermin asking if they could offer a non-shearling version as a GMTO, fingers crossed. I love all the boot options being released but none are just right for me to make my first meermin purchase. Dainite soles across the board would help. Who makes the bal boot that @table21 pictured?

I own two RON loafers, one in the same size as my HIRO - this one is a tad narrow in the toe box but too wide in ankle and heel area, so no good fit. The other one I sized down .5 , it is too short and uncomfortable in the toe box, soe again no good fit.
That's what I meant above, I'm not a fan of sizing up or down to compensate for non-ideal lasts in relation to one's specific foot shape, but rather choose a different last (e.g. UETAM by Carmina for loafers, in my case)
So you do not recommend going the same size I use in the UETAM for Meermin shoes? I use 9 UK in the UETAM and was thinking the RON in 9 UK should work.
Working on some new rubber soled balmoral boots for our RTW & MTO Groups.
We are expecting a shipment of Japanese Shell along this week, we will keep you all updated on it!
Said that, is more & more difficult to get Shells everyday, but we are optimistic that with the new tannery we are working, to see the service improving over the coming months, and be able to widen up our Shell Cordovan offerings.
Thanks for your interest!
I agree, but please answer my query on the shearling boot GMTO!
I also got a shipping notice yesterday, which was a pleasant surprise. As it appears, my Tan Country Calf Oxfords are ready (just a few days short of 2 months). Should be arriving on Tuesday.
