Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 995

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.

I've had a similar experience, although not as pronounced as the pair you've pictured. You can see some slight wrinkling on the inside part of the strap on my pair here, these are about 2 years old worn roughly once a week. I've used a light layer of cream/polish and the wrinkles tend to bother me less, but I think at Meermin's price point, this issue is relatively normal and acceptable.

Either way, it doesn't look bad. As long as the wrinkles don't turn into cracks, they give shoes character.

I am thinking to buy Meermin loafers for business casual wear in summer, and in general get as much versatility as possible. Which one of them you think is most versatile: https://www.meermin.es/catalogo.php?idFamilia4=4&idFamilia3=1

 

I am leaning towards these:

 

 

or maybe it's better not suede? Then these also looks nice:

Does meermin does MTO for a single pair of shoes? Thought of getting a pair in EE or EEE width.

no

I found Meermin shoes on the Ebay and guy says he only wore them 3 times.

 

You think it can be true based on the pic or it's impossible to say from this picture? I see some clear signs of bent leather which shows he used them, but I am not sure how much.

pictures of the damages of the sole are much easier to see how much it was worn

Dear sir, could you to clarify about Hiro fitting? Is a Hiro last 9UK (for example) = 9 UK G (wide) fitting with Loake/AS/Church etc. ? Rui last is the same G fit? And which lasts have a F (standart) fit then?

post #14920 of 15491

I would say a Hiro is E/F, Rui F/G

The normal Hiro is definitely not G! The MTO group I linked in my previous post is a special version of the Hiro that is wider than normal

Can anyone advise me on sizing with respect to Meermin Elton's and Carmina Rain's? I own two pairs of Rains in a 7.5 UK that are snug and fit perfectly. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Elton and Carmina last are very similar to each other. My Elton's fit me just as well as my Rain last shoes. Go with the same size.

My first Meermin shoes, and my first oxfords in general. Found on 2nd hand site a guy was selling, said he used them only 3 times. This is 101198 - DARK BROWN CALF (Hiro last), size UK9 and fits me almost perfectly. I don't know how tight shoes should be, but these are really snug, they don't hurt me, but quite tight all over my feet.

 

Paid 80€ and quality seems great, can't find anything wrong, the only bad thing is that he said he has them for 4 month and did not use shoe trees.

If I purchase Meermin shoes (or any other shoes from out of the country), and I pay DHL or UPS the duties, shouldn't I be able to get it back if I send back the shoes?
