Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 960

post #14386 of 15488
If a cobbler isn't capable of that, you shouldn't be handing over shoes worth any more than 50EUR. They're probably just gluing on soles. It's really easy. Easier than any other repair that can be done to a shoe. If it is just a case of not having the toe taps, I would just buy some, hand them over and save even more money.

I am considering a Hiro last double monk as my first Meermin purchase, can anyone give some sizing advice?

 

Brannock: 8.15-8.25D (left foot on the larger end)

Alden barrie: 7.5D (great with most socks)

Alden van last: 7.5D (sung with dress socks)

AE 5 last: 8D (snug with dress socks)

C&J Lindrick: 8D (good with boot socks)

Sperry: 8.5

OSB loafers: 7.5D

EG 606: 7.5 UK (feels a hair large but not enough to change sizes)

 

 

Would I be off base considering a 7.5UK? I have read the hiro last might be a bit narrow so am a little worried about going down to a 7UK, maybe someone can compared to any of the lasts I mentioned above to help me figure it out.

I wear Alden Barrie/Van 7.5D Aberdeen 8D and i used to own hiro double monk UK7. I found that the toe box area is a bit tight but the heel cup is wide making my heels slip. Even though its not a great fit, going up half size will definitely be too loose in the heel. I recommend the elton last instead, as of now i have changed from hiro to elton, same size, but fit a lot better.

PS. IMO If you are looking for a sleek double monk or even oxford, hiro is not a great choice.

Thanks, I am considering the chestnut country calf pair so don't mind the less sleek last.

Hi all,

Does anyone know when Meermin will produce the Cherry Shell Cordovan again? Or have they stopped making cordovan boots?

https://www.meermin.es/grupoMTO.php?idGrupo=72

Also I am a 7E brannock size, would you know what Hiro size would fit me best? I'm thinking 6UK but not 100% sure

Thanks,

X

1 down from brannock is the general recommendation. Those boots were a GMTO, so they were never carried in stock. They may come back or not... so your best bet is to email Meermin or otherwise contact them directly to ask.

What are your thoughts on their new single monk, I've noticed they only have it in black at the moment, but have a burgundy MTO, I think it would look lovely in chocolate suede...

Hello quick question, would appreciate something to compare against. 

 

What is your feet length & width and what size do you wear in the Elton last?

How do you perceive the fit?

I think those would look pretty killer in suede.

A little fiebings dye and some elbow grease have me these


I love this red/burgundy color ! How did you do ? What product did you use ? 

 

Thanks !

I'm good on suede shoes but I appreciate the sentiment smile.gif

Anyone experience the suede being a bit thinner than calf on the same sole? Curious whether it's enough of a difference to size down half a size. I wear UK8 in Hiro, very content with the shoe overall. Was snug at first and took a while to break in and eventually I ended up having to install some tongue pads. Still wears great to this day, about 2 years now.

Hello Gentlemen!

 

I'm dreaming of ordering a pair of 101540 - black calf oxfords on an Elton last and I really need your size advice.

 

There's not much that I can compare with, due to my location and poor assortment of shoes. But I'm wearing LOAKE UK 8F. I have aldrich and outlaw of there 1880 range. They fit me perfectly. 

 

I wonder if I should order size 8 from Meermin? It's important due to my location, the shipping cost is quite high, so if I miss the size I'd pay another pair of shoes to return them :)

 

I'd be very grateful for you help. Thank you in advance.

 

Here they are

Have you tried emailing Meermin with your query, they will get back to you with measurements of the shoe which you can then compare to your Loake's? They will then recommend a size for you which worked well for me! I am normally a 7 and went for a 7.5 in the Hiro Double Monks and Balmoral Boots.

Thanks,

Nick
