I think a full size down from your US size is a safe bet for medium feet. But if you don't want to gamble too much, you can always try their eBay Store for 2nds at a decent price.

Are you guys ever going to come back to New York @Meermin 

post #15156 of 15731

I just want to share some pictures of my well-worn Meermins along with my new found passion, watches. If my memory serves me correct, the following pairs are the plum museum calf captoes in the Hiro last (LM Line) and the antique oak austerity wingtips in the Elton last (Classic line). My antique oak austerity wingtips are one of the very first pairs offered in the MTO program. I have to say, these are probably one of my favorite shoes in the collection, which consist of Aldens, Carminas, Edward Greens, Vass etc…  Meermin did a fine job with the burnishing (Not EG Dover good, but much better than most in the $200 category) and the construction and finishing is better than what I would expect for a pair of shoes less than $200. Moving along to my other pair, my experience with the plum museum calf was not as pleasant given that the leather forms cracks akin to spider veins after a couple of wears due to dryness or perhaps inferior quality of the treated leather. In addition, the museum effect looks a bit blotchy rather than molted, which I guess is tolerable if the shoes were $200, but the LM line is around $400 (I believe museum calf is a bit more expensive than regular calf in the LM line).  

 

No watch review here, but as a caveat, just be cautious of how much damage a watch can easily do to your wallet! Shoes may or may not be a couple of hundred for a pair, but even starter watches can easily exceed that amount. Just as an example, the price of the Damasko DA34 pictured below can easily purchase 3-5 pairs of Meermins and the aforementioned watch is by no means considered a “luxury” piece, rather it’s more known as a “budget” brand in the watch aficionado circle.

 

I digress from the intent of this thread...but here alas:

Does anyone know where Meermin manufactures their shoes? I read on a German Forum that part if not all of them are made mostly in China.

As comparing them to Carmina, I had a couple Meermins but send them back because the leather just felt very hard.

Any chance they have a shop or a retailer in Mallorca?

They have a shop in Madrid. My understanding is their Classic Line is made in China and their Linea Maestra in Mallorca.

Thanks for the info.

I had a conversation today about Carmina and Meermin. I was told that they are sharing the lasts. As someone posted about the similarity about Rain and some other last, does anyone know which Meermin lasts are similar to Forest and Simpson?

I emailed Meermin. Told them that I'm mostly a 8D in the 65 last from AE. They told me to go with a 7D in their shoes. Just a FYI

Looking to purchase my first pair of double monks from Meermin, but can't seem to decide on a color (dark brown and burgundy calf look nice). My small dress shoe collection consists of dark brown Park Avenues and bourbon Strands. Anyone care to point me in the right direction?

If the Tricker 4497S(Stow) UK8 fits me perfectly, what size should I pick in Meermin lasts, since they have many attractive shoes?

post #15164 of 15731

I am doing my best trying to navigate the different last options that are currently available at the Meermin website. 

 

It seems all of the oxford shoes available are built on either the Hiro or Olfe last, while the blucher shoes uses the Rui last.

 

I have wide feet and while I can fit very snugly into a pair of UK11 Loake shoes built on the Capitol last (which could probably work after a painful brake in), the ball of my foot is squeezed together and would hurt if worn throughout the whole day. I can wear the same shoe in UK11.5 with much more comfort, but with some heel slippage. 

 

Based on this, would you say I would be able to wear a Hiro or Olfe last, or are they way too narrow? Would it mean sizing up to a UK12?

 

Edit: I should also add that I also have a pair of Tricker's Stow boots with a width 5 last which fit me snugly but well at UK11.5, but needed some time to break in and adapt to the width of my feet.

If you already have two dark brown shoes you may want to consider the burgundies. that's what I'd go for anyway.
