Can't believe I missed the split-toe derby GMTO! Exact color and sole combo I'd been wanting.

@prozach1576 I think if you send Meermin an email you may still be able to join.

Definitely send them an email, you'll likely be able to still join it. I emailed them a few days after a GMTO closed and was still able to get in on it.

Does anyone have any pictures of any (or all) of these balmoral boots in the wild?

 

Thanks!

I passed by the shop today to check some sizing.  Got this pics of LM for you. Hope you like them.

 

 

The toe and apron stiching are quite impressive, following same techniques than the E.G Dover. Beautiful shoe.

 

 

Olfe last is really nice for Oxfords. Its very well balanced. Only last that fits me properly.

Check out Meermin's Facebook or Instagram. They posted them.

Been browsing the forum for a while now and thought I'd contribute what I can!

 

I'm a graduate student from Canada and finding a reasonably priced, good quality dress shoe, in a size 6.5D US can be trying. I really wanted a pair of Meermins, however, the weak $CAD made me hold back (a new pair costs ~$330CAD after shipping+duty). Fortunately I found someone mentioning the ebay store selling Meermin 2nds (thanks whoever first posted that!) and I purchased 2 pairs over the last 8 months:

 

Dark brown suede Linea Maestro:

 

Sized up to a 6UK on the New Rey last here. The defect was "suede hair slightly longer than usual"... I'm sure more discernible eyes can tell, but I don't notice. Either way I love the shoes and they are super comfortable after a break-in period of maybe 3-4 wears.

 

Antique oak / country grain balmoral boot:

 

Went with a 5.5UK and they are comfortably snug (a bit of room around the waist though). Defect is the discoloration in the 2nd photo, which you can't really notice unless you're looking for it. As other posters have mentioned regarding the rubber soles, break-in took A LONG time. Probably 10-15 wears and manually flexing the sole and heel counter several times. By the way, I found the heel counter extends quite far along the quarter, almost halfway to the captoe - which seems to contribute to the roominess around the shoe waist area. Is this normal for the Hiro last, or is it just a thing for their boots? Definitely quite a bit of pain to finally get the shoe and my feet to agree with one another. I'll probably hold back on future boot or rubber soled shoe purchases because of this.

 

Overall I'm pretty impressed with the shoes though, especially considering the price (I paid on average $180CAD all in). I did get hit with duties/taxes, but only on the amount I won the auctions for. For Canadians out there, this is probably one of the only options to get a <$200CAD shoe of decent quality. Hopefully as soon as my student budget changes I can look at getting a pair of those drool worthy shell GMTO's...

Awesome! I'm from Canada too and just bought the exact same pair of the antique oak / country grain balmoral boots off that eBay store few days back. It's a relief to hear the size fits true to size,

Hello everyone,
I was wondering if I can get some help with sizing.
If you wear 8.5 Finsbury, what size Meeermin should I get?
Also, is there a place where you can Meermin shoes in Barcelona?
Thx

Meermin has only one shop in Madrid.  I would recommend you to check last Vs last.  I am afraid I can´t help you here.

Thanks for the suggestion, I was able to join.

I'm attending a wedding in Italy later this year that will come at the end of a 10 day trip from Zurich down to Rome. Lug-soled split-toes should be perfect to do double duty as shoes to kick around in as a tourist while still looking good with a light grey suit at an outdoor wedding.

Good afternoon Guys!

 

Hoping you are great! Just a quick note, that due to Easter holidays, our Factory is closed Today & Monday. Please kindly give us extra time to answer your emails, inquiries & shipments along these days. Thanks for your understanding!

 

On a side note, some new MTO Groups are now live! Many new options for the single monk lovers:

 

 

 

Happy Easter everyone!

I did them one of the time to show the contrast.
This is my first time using the deer bone and I'm very satisfied with the results.

How are they? I have the exact same loafers and they are killing my heels.

I enjoy them. Break-in was rough on my heels, especially since I had a bit of heel slip before adding tongue pads that now push my heel back in place.
