Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 144

post #2146 of 11017
Nice pics, Kevin.
post #2147 of 11017
As promised (a day late), here are pics of my new MTO Meermins. These are probably the most boring MTO you will see, but they are for my wedding so...

Details: Black Freudenberg Calf, Maroon lining, Olfe Last, sunken toe taps.



The Olfe last has a beautiful waist



Couldn't be happier with the toe taps



Couldn't resist



For those wanting a comparison, this is the Carmina Robert last on the left and Olfe on the right. They are very similar in shape and size. The Olfe comes a bit higher up on the heel which is a good thing for me.

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone could help - I emailed Luisa my measurements earlier today and she replied back saying I probably was a UK8.5. I was just a bit skeptical as the only dress shoes I have are a pair of Canalis, and they're size 40.5, which translate to about UK7.5 I believe.

 

If anyone has a similar shoe size and could let me know, it would be much appreciated!

Great service and delivery was faster than expected.

Love the shoes and the colour. Quality is great and comparable to stuff that costs twice the price. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Wow. Pictures like this really demonstrate how much of a bargain these shoes are. The words "made to order" are straightforward, but when you see the leathers being hand clicked, it really drives home the message. Totally awesome for the price.

If I was you I had bought size 8, of course it depends what last it is.

Do the Linea Maestro shoes come with shoetrees?

Im going to order these shoes: http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1924#

 

Im not really sure which size i should choose though. I have a pair of Loake Aldwych in uk 9,5, should i order size 9,5 or 10 on these? Not really sure which last they are on but im guessing its Olfe? How does that last fit?

Hopefully someone else here can give you an idea, but I'd encourage you to also contact Meermin seeking advice. They seem to be pretty familiar with a wide variety of "good" shoes and can advise you.

Contact them.

 

I'd also go ahead and trace the outline of your foot on a piece of paper while stranding up. (have someone else do it). then measure the length and width, and 

that info will help them determine your size.

I agree mate, don't worry. Just a lot that do a MTO buy (applies to suits too) end up with something "unique" to them that in reality is actually not very wearable, because it stands out too much. As you can see I'm wearing almost the same thing in brown on the other foot, so my shoe tastes are rather conservative.

Would be interested in this also, as I have similar measurements. I'm usually a 8.5D in the AE 5 last- does anyone with AE have experience with the Hiro and Rui lasts? The Rui shell derbys are looking really nice...

As the others advised, I could contact Meermin. But I am afraid the Olfe last might be to slim for you. The Aldwych in 9,5 fits me well in terms of ball width (it's just too high for me because my ball is quite flat) and I wear the Ama last in UK 10 (but I also have a high instep).

 

Best regards
