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

I have similar foot measurements (slightly wider than you though) and went with an 8UK for the Rui last and 8.5 UK for the New Rey so it depends on which model you're looking at getting. The fit was fine in terms of length and width for both shoes but for the Rui last, my ankle bone keeps rubbing up against the shoe causing quite a bit of discomfort but that's a function of my foot specifically

I don't why the Classic line were allegedly made in shanghai or china. My DB monk says Made in Spain.
post #2163 of 10953
does it specifically say "made in spain" or does it just reference meermin as a spanish brand?
post #2164 of 10953
mine says 'made in spain' stamped on the insole

Am not saying that Meermin shoes are not made in Spain, but what I'm saying is that the shoes don't have to be entirely made in Spain to bear those three words.

Yes. Stamped Made in Spain.

I'm interested in this model: http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2328.

If I remember correctly no one has posted a picture of those in this thread. I'd be grateful if anyone who has bought this model would share some pictures and/or experiences.

Thanks!

I just bought the semi brogue version of this on the olfe and I love it.

found this MTO on their website:



I like them.

Edit: I am also curious as to whether in this price (skill?) level, having a non-wholecut chelsea, with the pattern cut in the above sort of manner would actually help achieving a more curvaceous/ less blobby look?

If you're talking about the suede pair above your post, could you comment on sizing?

Size down 1 from US sizes. Olfe last is slightly narrow, but I like it a lot. If I were to do MTO, that would be the last. New Rey is very similar in width, but felt too long on me. People who recommend sizing up on New Rey sound insane to me, as someone who is hard on toes - the last thing I'd need is more length out of the New Rey.

I got a 7.5 UK, which is a .5 size up in the new rey that I purchased (hasn't arrived yet). Should I not have sized up?

 

Based on my measurements, that's what Luisa suggested ordering, even though I have never purchased an 8.5 US dress shoes as they tend to be big.
