Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 139

Hi,

Do Meermin size roughly similar to Loake?

Im an 8 in most Loake lasts (some fitting better than others), but my foot measures 270mm long and 105mm wide: by some of the details provided here I would be a 9 in Meermin, which seems a huge difference.

I have nearly the same measurements. You are size UK 8.5 with the Hiro last.. Probably need to go UK 9 for the New Rey.

I think he mentioned they are officially closed. This time of the year most places in europe kare closed for between 1-4 weeks for summers holidays, as are most of my suppliers. I'm sure he mentioned they would be closing for only 1 week. That said I received an email from him mid week, so they may be only replying to urgent emails (which mine was as my shoes were stuck in Spain for 11 days at TNT).

What is this business with fedex calling me because they are over $250 when I ordered 2 pairs? I have some sort of form to fill out?

Import duties on shoes - sounds like they have flagged your package to me. I believe it will be 18%.

I ask because when Pepe provided measurements for a size 10.5UK and an 11UK both looked smaller than expected:
10.5UK
Length: 320mm
Width: 110mm
11UK
Length: 324mm
Width: 111mm
I typically wear a size 12 shoes and most of my dress shoes (flat welt) measure 330ish x 115mm = 13" x 4.5"
Am i missing something here or am I going to have to size up to a 11.5UK instead of a 11UK?

Width: 110mm
11UK
Length: 324mm

11.5UK
Length: 329-330mm
Width: 111-112mm
My initial understanding of the new rey last was to size down one size. However, once I compared measurements, its clear that New Rey last fits my foot best by sizing down only 1/2 size. 11UK is equivalent to about a US11.5 while the 11.5UK is comparable to US 12.

Im a 11.5 in the G&G wigmore
11 in Carmina INCA
Ordered a 11.5UK in the new rey
based on your sizing pattern, my boot may be too big. heads about to pop from figuring out this last. crazy.gif

OK- I spoke with the lady from fedex on the phone and she actually said I wouldn't be getting charged... I will check it out though. I also emailed Luisa, more out of curiosity than anything, as I had been dealing with her on this order, and she told me Sandro was going to be taking care of it. 

 

 

Meermin customer service FTW again!

post #2081 of 10969
I didn't get charged the same day. They sent me a bill.
post #2082 of 10969

Has anyone else not received any news from them lately?

I ordered two pairs of shoes just over a month ago, one being the 10172 dark brown natucalf - uk 9.5, which arrived 10 days ago, but my other pair - 101273 black calf uk 9 have not arrived yet :( I

've tried emailing them which was a week ago, and no response....so I am not quite sure what to think. I live in Australia so it could be shipping, but as I said, I ordered both pairs at the same time, on the same invoice, and one came almost 2 weeks ago, and I received the shipping details for that one, but havent heard of any news about the black pair......HELP

post #2083 of 10969

^they are most likely closed for their summer vacation. And don't fret over delivery times - many times Meermin builds the pair you order from scratch so the delivery time can be 20 days or 45 days. Most likely your shoes will arrive in a separate shipment with no extra shipping charges to you. Meermin has very, very good (considering it is a Spanish company, I'd say amazingly good) customer service, but at least in my case Sandro, who is taking care of my order, didn't mention my HIRO monks are delayed until I asked her for an update on delivery times. He/she did however offer to send my 1st AMA wholecuts right away and then my monks later free of delivery charges.

 

skeen7908: You asked about size comparison with Loake... I'm still waiting for my HIRO last monks, but for the AMA last I can say, that at least in size UK 11.5 the AMA last would compare to a Capital/Pennine/024/026 in approx UK 11 (I'd love to say 10.75 because this is how I actually feel) in length and in width it falls somewhere around a 026 or a Pennine. The AMA IS wide. Too wide for a UK F last wearer. Then again so many people wear shoes that are too wide in fitting anyway...
