Thanks.

For what it's worth, I also took part in a GMTO scheduled to ship in April (snuff suede chelseas), and when I emailed Meermin asking about it, they responding saying they expect to ship out the shoes next week.

Yes, same here. The site might have been compromised so I would refrain from making any purchase for now.

I don't think it was compromised, their certificate expired on Thursday.  It is working fine for me now, try clearing your cache.

Does anyone have experience with both the Hiro last and the Allen Edmonds 65 last? I'm looking to get some oxfords and some balmoral boots on the hiro last, however due to recent postings about the volume of the hiro last I'm concerned about the hiro fitting me with my somewhat high insteps. Can anyone speak to whether the hiro is better (especially when it comes to v gap) than the AE 65 last for those with high insteps?

Many thanks.  I think I'll e-mail them.

Im planning to pull a trigger for Snuff Rapello Suede Loafers with Ron last. Just wondering the size... I own Chelsea boots suede with Hiro last in sz UK5.5 and Cap toe boots with Rui last in sz UK5. Meermin customer service recommends me to take same sz that Hiro last, but what do you guys think? Im worried about width, but there is only 1mm difference between UK5 and UK5.5, how much does suede stretch?

 

Really appreciated all the help I get! Below are the measuurements of Ron last in both size.

 

 

 

L 274mm shoe outsole 5,5UK     

W 095mm shoe outsole 5,5UK     

L 264mm last insole 5,5UK     

W 090mm last insole 5,5UK 

Foot 24,4 cm 5,5UK 

 

 

L 270mm shoe outsole 5UK 

W 094mm shoe outsole 5UK 

L 260mm last insole 5UK 

W 089mm last insole 5UK 

Foot 24 cm 5UK

I sized down 0.5 from Hiro to Ron then treed the loafers until they stretched a little. Same size as Hiro had heel slip.

For me I have Hiro and Ron in the same UK9.5 size. I have small heel slip in Hiro but I don't have any slip in Ron.

Hi guys

 

First time posting here. I already have a pair of Meermin oxfords in Hiro last and I'm ready for a second pair. Looking for a black oxfords and can't decide between these wholecuts https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4630# and these cap toes https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4702

 

Someone help me decide please? I wear them in a business context with suits only, never casual wear. I keep thinking the wholecuts are the way to go then something keeps stopping me...

I'd go with the cap-toe. I'm not a fan of smooth leather wholecut because its plain design makes creases look very prominent.

Wholecut is more formal without any ornamentation. Captoe is standard and just as appropriate for business wear, some might say more so. Both will work for your purposes so it comes down to which you like better.

Longwings in grain and cognac shell cordovan (shortly after some conditioning).

Hi there, thanks for checking out my review! I actually have tried on the monk straps, and I wear them all the time. Size 9 fits me just right (same as all my other dress shoes), and I am indeed able to slip them on without unbuckling them. Maybe I just have skinny feet...

Anyway, I appreciate the feedback! Thanks!

Has anybody pulled a trigger on the copper antique calf yet? Want to know the shade of them in real life whether its an orangish or reddish brown? What color does 'copper' suppose to be anyway, i have no idea.
post #14819 of 15497

Im interested as well!

post #14820 of 15497

Can anyone tell me if these shoes are the chestnut antique color or something different? In a lot of their listings on ebay they just list "light brown" or "tan brown" or something generic for the color http://www.ebay.com/itm/252369791785?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
