A tip regarding the single shoe bag - My 9.5UK Hiros fit in the bag if I put them sole to sole with different directions, i.e. the heel of one touches the front part of the sole of the other. This is with shoe trees included.

Do anyone know if it is possible to suggest MTO at Meermin?

 

I would suggest a Dark Brown Shell Cordovan Cap Toe, austerity brogue or Norwegian split toe bluchers in Hiro, Brou, Olfe or Elton last.

Thanks. I wear a UK11. Pretty difficult to get both in. Not a big deal, I'm just wondering the logic behind giving just 1 bag when clearly they recommend 2 bags for the more expensive line. You're right, they might have not taken into account bigger shoe sizes...

Before, yes. Now, i dont think so however you can email them, theres nothing wrong. You will get an email saying thanks for the interest, and they will say your suggestion will be considered. I remember a guy here did that and the MTO really came thorugh so its worth a swing. MTO from meermin now are mainly based on their previous run IMO, and i think they will bring back those that get the most "let me know if these are available again" button.

How do one determine of the shoes fit good or not? I'm new to quality-shoes therefore I don't really know what to look for. 

Got my double monks from meermin a week ago, I'm having trouble getting my left foot into the shoe and the shoe feels quite snug. However, even though the shoe feels snug and my heel is all the way back in the shoe, I still get heel slip. 

 

Is the last a bad fit for my feet? It's the Elton last and I think I do have quite wide feet.

A good fit is when all the air in the shoe goes woosh when you slip your feet in, and you feel the shoe hugging your feet like a glove. It will feel snug, especially at the back of the heel, but the paradox is that you wont feel like you are wearing a shoe at all. Definitely no heel slip.

My birthday's in two weeks and I was thinking of buying myself a pair of the burgundy balmoral boots, but they seem to have disappeared from the website.

Anyone know about this or know if they will ever return?

Shoot them an email, it's possible they may still have it in stock.

Well the air goes swosh, however, I struggle to bring the shoe horn out of the shoe when my feet are in, especially the left one. These shoes must be too short? The pressure from my heel onto the heel inside the shoe makes it so that the shoe harn is almost stuck and I have to use force to remove it. Guess I should sell these?

I'm pretty new to the shoe game (I own a pair of AE's and a pair of Carmina's). Could anyone help me figure out my size in Meermin?

 

I wear a US 9D in Allen Edmonds Park Avenues. My Carmina's are double monks (the Nicolas style made on the Rain last) and they are a size 8.5UK; perhaps a tad roomy length-wise. 

 

Should I go with an 8.5UK or 8UK for oxfords from Meermin? Obviously I want to avoid the shipping hassle of sending them back to Spain. Thanks!

Park avenue is a very generous fitting shoes so you should easily fit a UK8 in most european shoes.

I don't necessarily agree with this.  Park Ave is on the narrow side and doesn't have a generous instep.  

 

I am an 8.5 from heel to toe, but 9 from heel to ball.  My width is D but borderline with E.  I have a moderately high instep.  My TTS is normally a 9D and I am usually left with a little extra room in the toe.  In the Park Ave I tried quite a few sizes, since 9D felt a bit too snug in the width and instep.  However, anything E gave me heel slippage.  Ultimately I went with the 9D, since overall it was the best.  Even now that they're broken in, they still feel quite snug in width and instep.  Not too bad, though, especially since I really like my pair and I can forgive the tightness.  But I would in no way call this a "generous fit".

 

Having said all that, I did go with 8 UK for my Meermin oxfords (Hiro last), and I am very happy with the size.  These fit me better than the PA's, as they are a bit more generous in width (at the ball) and at the instep.  They are narrower up at the toes though. 

 

Hope this helps a bit @mosivy

Pretty much all of Meermin oxford lasts (Hiro, Olfe, Elton) will be fit tighter than Carmina's Rain last width-wise. Length-wise, I would say they're comparable (at least Hiro; have not tried Olfe or Elton). If there's a decent amount of room in the width and instep on Rain last, I'd go with UK8. If you're happy with the width of the Rain double monks, I'd stick to UK8.5. Also take into consideration the fact that oxfords will likely fit tighter than double monks.

Thanks for the insight! But of course the advice is varied, which still leaves me a little confused as to what size to pick.

 

Maybe it'll help if I talk about how my Carmina double monks fit. Also my mistake, they are made on the inca last.  It's an EE width.

The actual shoes: http://www.pediwear.co.uk/carmina/products/8200.php

Carmina's lasts: http://www.carminashoemaker.com/about-last

 

In terms of width, they're fine: a little teeny bit of extra space but comfortable as they are. In terms of length, there is a bit of extra space in the toes, but no heel slippage. In terms of instep, it's complicated. I wear a plastic lift in my left shoe, so it's quite snug in the instep. The right shoe is fine, maybe a tad roomy. 

 

I'm super unsure about which size to pick.

^This advice makes me a think an 8UK will be fine. Especially as my feet are a tad wide (just barely D).

Thanks again for the advice y'all.

Sometimes it takes time to break in shoes. Part of why you might be getting heel slip is because the front of your shoe hasn't developed a crease yet to allow for flex to keep your heel in the shoe.
