How did you sand edge of plate so it aligns with shoe sole? 

I didn't sand it. I took a thin strip of the sole out to embed the plate in the sole.

I actually wonder if Meermin has a record of shipping out MTO orders earlier than planned. I managed to get in the MTO for their latest pair of shell cordovan and expected ship date was July. Any chance I can expect a June shipment?

I'm afraid of getting a pair and gradually dying it the colour of the wax I'll use, making the pattern disappear. I've never had shoes with much of a patina so this is new to me. I've "converted" a light brown pair to cognac with ample application of Saphir and was surprised at how fast it happens. Do you use transparent products to avoid the problem? 

Good afternoon Sir! We recommend neutral cream and wax for the museum calf, this way you´ll not hide the pattern. Just let us know if you need further assistance.

I meant if the shape of plate is exactly the same as the shape of sole...? Or you had to sand the plate shape so it aligns with sole shape?

The one shell double monk I participated in through GMTO was supposed to arrive in may, and I received it on 12th May.

Does anyone know how Meermin compares to Allen Edmond's 8 last? I have a pair of AE Hales in 9.5D that fits me pretty much perfectly. Wonder what that is to Meermin? I also have a pair of Meermin's Hiro in size 8.5 that fits pretty well, but not as snug as the Hales. I'm a little hesitant to size down on the Meermin because of how hard the leather was (and still a little after wearing them weekly for 6 months now), but would love to try to get the same snug fit as the Hales.

If you mainly brush your shoes, you will have no problem using once a year any wax: light, neutral or even black.  I use darker colours  and then brush. I do not use neutral creams/waxes ever.

Is the Elton last just the hiro last with a chiseled toe or am I remembering this wrong?

Hi.

 

I have bought the Meermin double monks and are experiencing some wrinkling with the leather as illustrated on the pictures:

 

Is this normal or is it bad leather quality for the meermin shoes? It seems like the leather is lifting itself. I have not experienced this with C&J, Church's or Alfred Sargent shoes that I also have. However, those are not monk shoes.

Personally I'd use some Saphir cream on them, but to be honest Meermin aren't C&J,Church's or Alfred Sargent

Anyone have a solution to leather rubbing against leather and causing squeaks?

The pair of suede oxfords I picked up and posted about earlier creates squeaks around the upper lacing where the tongue is tied down. The suede is rubbing against the leather lining. When I flex my ankle upward the sound is quite noticeable especially when going up stairs. Not so much when I am walking though if I am going at a faster pace it is noticeable.

Should I be treating the leather lining with something? Never experienced this before with my other leather and suede shoes.

Sign of cheap leather?!...ha jk...

I had this problem with my double monks and I used fabric tape on the lining above the tongue and problem solved. Not invasive method and easy to revert :).

Hey guys, thinking to buy this Meermin suede Chukka, and they only have either UK size 7/ or 9. Now I am usually size 43 Eur, which is 9 UK. I heard Meermin fit much bigger, so do you think this will not workout for me? I think 7/ will be too small and 9 will be too big, or?

Oh, right! It is very close to the shape of the sole (there are different sizes). The plate is minimally narrower than the sole, but no sanding was needed.
