Just fill them out like they ask. Didn't get dinged for anything extra ($40ish I think bill was )

I plan to order a few LMs, but i really think the quality of these shoes is not quite up to par.

I have 3 pairs of Meermin's, all shell and so far they are, in my opinion top quality shoes.  I have had the opportunity to wear my Burgundy shell PTB's on a number of occasions and while the shell was a bit stiff at first after wearing them, a little Saphir and a bit of brushing they are getting softer all the time.  Very very comfortable out of the box and actually are more comfortable than my AE and Alden PTB's.  

 

Burgundy PTBs, Cuero NSTs, what are the third pair?

I totally agree!

Cuero Longwings... I had to order as MTO.  when I ordered them I was so excited that I forgot to request a different color lining which would have been cool but they they are great they way they turned out.

Any chance of pictures? I have a pair of cuero longwings on the way, single leather sole though vs double.

Cheers. That said, probably won't be close to mine with the current change in shell colours. 

 

Oh I never got an answer, are the PTBs rubber or leather sole?

Sorry for all the questions Cali. Thanks for the pictures, nice looking shoes. Mine are still a month out : /, but should be here just in time for summer in upside-down land! (Australia)

Does anyone have experience of Meermin tassel loafer last Ron and Forest or Uetam last from Carmina? How do they compare widthwise?
post #2711 of 11564
for those who have purchase the Meermin tree, how do they fit? do they fill out the entire toe box and vamp area?

Yep they fit perfectly for my 'ama' last shoes; btw how much wider is the 'rui' last compared to ama (thinking of getting the non-shell, leather soled longwings :)

Apparently most people wear the same size in Hiro and Rui, so I'd hazard a guess at no more than 1-2mm.

the Ama is wider than the Ron by a bit. I have shoes in both, and the Ron fits and the Ama is too wide. I think that the Rui is a hair wider than the ron but likely by about the same amount as the Ama (see below, that's why they are for sale!) I love the Ron tassel loafers, actually wearing them right now!
