Not sure why you'd be messing with meermin if you could afford C&J. Unless strictly for beaters. Meermin lasts make me very happy indeed, for the money. But I prefer the quality of my British made shoes and certainly wouldn't have more than a pair or two if C&J was the right price to be able to have 5 pairs to rotate.

My question was exactly that, directed to those, who own CJ and other premium brands yet actually bother buying Meermin as well.

Maybe it's not a bad idea to have some Meermins for really shitty weather or something similar.

Meermin are very nice shoes, until you put them next to brands like the one you mentioned, which are obviously superior.
But this is the same for Loake and all the mid-tier brands.

My experience is that the finish and exterior look is nice and refined (for example the welt finish is clean and nicer than many english brands)
The problem is "inside" the shoes, insole and toe and heel counters are very very stiff and make them unconfortable after a couple of hours.

I would buy only loafers and monks from them anyway, I simply hate their laced styles with a mile of spacing between eyelets, very cheap looking IMO.

I own only the tassel loafers (friends own the double monks and other tassels) worn as daily beaters during spring summer months, after years of use and abuse they're still in great strong condition.
I would definitely recommend them.

Last year I make a Meermin VS C&J comparision, maybe it could help, see here:

Fellow Torontonian here. I have paid $78 and eighty something CAD for the two orders shipped with FedEx. For my last order, I emailed and asked them to send it with the national Spanish post service. I received them after three weeks but didn't have to pay anything for tax and duty. Hope this helps.

I have the same foot measurements- did the uk9 Hiro work out for you in the end? I ordered an 8.5 Hiro but they were too tight so now I am awaiting an exchange to uk9.

This is my first Meermin pair so I can't compare to the Hiro last. In terms of fit, they are great. Very comfortable but snug at the heel like a loafer should be.

Gents,

I recently picked up a pair of the black patent leather wholecuts based on the Olfe last. I typically wear a 13D in the Allen Edmonds 5 last and although the Olfe was a bit snug around the toes, I found the shoes to be comfortable during a long day.

To follow up, I purchased a pair of cap toes in the Hiro last. Unfortunately, the heel area is so tight on one shoe that I developed a major blister on my inner heel within a few minutes of wear; skin actually came off and I could barely walk without wincing. Will this get better as the shoes break in or am I doomed?

Can't find an answer, sorry.

Rui would be a bit wider.

 

to quote my previous post "I usually wear a 7uk, ordered the 7.5 on HIRO, fit well on the front half but with high instep and heel slip, got to remedy with a  tongue pad and break in and now it fits quite well. Then got the RUI in 7uk, good fit all around with slight heel slip thats starting to go away (only wore it twice, Meermin tends to have quite stiff leather out of the box).  -- both these sizings came from hours of studying this forum haha hope this helps!"

 

Cheers
