Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 162

post #2416 of 10175
Thanks for the comments about the Blue Suede Double Monks. This was a stock shoe for Meermin and I simply sent an email asking if they had it in stock in my size. They were of the cheaper line. With shipping and shoe trees I think I spent around $250 but don't hold me to that as it's been a few weeks. Shipping was fast and I received the shoes within 14 days of payment. They are on the Hiro last and I sized done a whole size from my US size (i.e. 9.5US to 8.5UK). Happy with them so far. I'm looking to maybe do an MTO with them soon. Check on the Carmina Shoe Porn Thread to see what else I just got in the mail...

My new double monks. A good shoe for the price and amazingly fast shipping. They only took 4 days to get to me.

Definitely Olfe. New Rey is too slim for a boot, and Hiro is a little too round for my taste. I think the Olfe is more to your taste too.

Awesome looking double monks!

Thanks Naka. I agree. I was leaning towards it but your advice helped.

Pepe said they can make a boot similar to the look of the JL William boot. Biggest notice able difference is the shaft, JL is about an inch higher which is what I want.

Burgundy Shell
Double leather

Burgundy sounds nice. Double sole is best sole too, I noticed in the Carmina x Epaulet thread that the single sole boots looked a little anaemic.

Has anyone heard if Meermin does a double to single taper? When done right it looks great, but if Meermin can do it right is still yet to be seen.

Where do I buy the stuff from the meermin.tumblr? I can't find some of the shoes posted on the blog in the webshop.

Mostly Made To Order if I'm not wrong.

Gents,

I just got these:

When I tried them with the buckles undone, left shoe stays on my foot when walking normally, but right shoe keeps slipping and popping out from the shoe as if it's a bit loose. You reckon it's going to be a problem with monks? I cannot lace them harder if I need to and I'm a bit worried they will get loose as the leather stretches. They are a UK8, I can try swapping for UK7.5, but then I think the left shoe will be too tight as it's snug at the moment (my right foot is slightly smaller than my left). I never had monks so I'm not sure what the fit should be like.

Regards,
dsc.
