My 3-yr-old daughter is demanding, I poop you not, that I watch "Cinderella" w/ her. So the commentary on these magic slippers will have to wait til later.

Based on my 9.5UK size in AS last 87, C&J 337, etc. Mr. Albaladejo suggested I go w/ 9.5, & I did. The length is pretty close to perfect, but the width is a little too narrow. The curve of the shoe matches the ball of my foot & instep, but it's a little tight in the vamp along the top ridge of my foot that parallels the instep. After about 15 hours of wear over 2 days the shoes are stretching, & I hope that they'll keep stretching. If not, I'll have a cobbler stretch them a little & add another hole in the buckle-strap closer to the toe (there's only 1 position!). I asked via email whether I should've ordered a 10 or wider fit, here's the reply I got from Mr. Albaladejo:

 

 

Well, currently we are producing standard wide for our lasts  (Each last its width; The New Rey is one of the narrower lasts, we have other lasts which are wider) but as a MTO we can make the a wider New Rey.
In my opinion I think is better to have a wider MTO New Rey instead of taking a 10, if the length is the right one.
 
More later on finish.

Here is how my GF's Linea Maestros look like after one week:

Yes, she is rough on 'em, but even that can't explain the split in the sole... ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif


Question for the experts: what is the cause of the split, and will it get worse?

Edit: sorry for the crappy pics but I couldn't be bothered to take nicer pics of that!

 

HI Mr.Invariant,

 

Sorry to hear about that, please email us at: info@meermin.es and we will replace the pair, because this is not usual.

 

Thank you very much.

 

Best regards,

I fit the 9.5D on the Alden Barrie last very well. What size does that make me in Meermin?

Why would anyone take a Barrie last as a guidepost to wearing a EURO shoe?facepalm.gif

Its the only reference I have... other than a 10E in Aberdeen or a 44 in Vass New Peter. I'm seeking size guidance for a new maker in which little is available. No need to be a dick. nod[1].gif

Vass would have been a better reference point. Barrie = blobbiest of the blobs.
