Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 970

post #14536 of 15488
What trousers will you wear them with @gettoasty? I just got some dark brown suede Meermins and I'm kind of wishing I'd gone for snuff. Feels like too much contrast with light colored trousers...since they don't reflect light like calf they just feel so dark.

I have a pair of the dark brown suede, go well with grey or navy trousers. On the other hand find the copper ones hard to pair for the contrast reason.

Gray, navy, brown (taupe), white or off white.

I primarily bought them tow ear with gray and navy. I do prefer brown calf to brown color pants.

I am also concerned about not being able to try it on and the sizing being different. Does anyone here have a 9.5D foot and have a Meermin? If so, what size did you get?
To be honest I'm not sure the reviewer you linked has much experience with suede. I have a pair of suede chukkas and they are perfectly fine. The heel issue he mentioned happens from the plastic sticks they put in shoes before shipping.

Sizing by 9.5D is that what you wear in a certain brand? Brannock sizing? Meermin tends to run true to Brannock, maybe a little narrower for some.

I'm very new to this type of shoe, so I am wary of ordering a shoe online in regard to fit. I have 4 pairs of 9.5 D right now, all low-mid line brands though. I have no idea of the relationship between brands and fit.

Hey Guys,

 

Anyone here wear a pair of 10.5 UK Hiros, and have ron loafers as well? What size did you guys get for the loafers?

I too am interested in the answer to this question. In particular to me, I'm a 10.5EE in general, with a mediumly high instep. I have 2 chukkas and a LM double monk boot on hiro in 10UK, which fit well enough for me to continue to buy them.

that being said, no closure system on loafers means they may not be tight enough on my foot if I stay at 10UK, but could be too tight in the toes if I go down to 9.5UK.

So after that long and rambling thought, how does the Ron last fit?

I won't size down, the Ron last is verry tight at the toe box.

I have both Hiro and Ron. By Heel to ball of foot you should size down ½ a size from Hiro to Ron.

You will want Ron to be a bit tight as to not have heelslip.

Hello there, I have another sizing question... I'm starting to be really desperate since I don't have any decent shoe shops nearby and I need to order online as many of you here.

 

However, here are my measurements:

 

Length: 284mm

Width: 103mm

 

What size should I choose in Hiro? Length of Hiro in UK8,5 is 284mm - is this enough or 284mm is from tip to the heel and I need to add extra space (if yes how much or which size do you recommend)? Or is there any better last for my feet dimensions?

I'd suggest you email them with your foot size, as its highly likely you'll nee a bigger size, maybe around a 10. Someone will respond with the measurements for the last you're interested in.

 

Here's what they sent me when I enquired (although this is for the OLFE), note the intended foot size of a 8.5UK shoe - 26.8 cm. From what I've read you should have at least 10mm allowance. For what it's worth my foot is around 260mm and I went with an 8UK, which has an insole measurement of 280mm.  

 

L 308 mm shoe outsole 8.5UK

W 107 mm shoe outsole 8.5UK

L 288 mm last insole 8.5UK

W 102 mm last insole 8.5UK

Foot 26.8 cm 8.5UK

Is it me or does the Hiro last look like a French mini baguette? A bit more waste suppression needed IMO.

considering my first pair of Meermin

how are their PTB and what about sizing? 11d on brannock.
