Chogall is one I have read and respect. I have been on this site since '08 but posted and read regularly since '10. He is right, and proved right on Vass. Only thing I have disagreed with others on is the import levy, tax. EMS is the preferred mailing option, but as previously stated, my purchases and other's who have ordered from Miami, have never been charged- and I know a fed Ex air delivery agent who has said it is simply an arbitrary decision. Bottom line, Miami is an aberration. Quit moaning and build 10% into the purchase

'12 for posting I think.

I have only 1 pair on New Rey. I went TTS UK (9.5 vs. 10.5US/10E AE/10 Barrie) on Pepe's advice, & they're too narrow. I'd go up .5 if I wanted any more on the New Rey.

I went against advice to size up 0.5 and stayed with my own size. Too narrow but I can live with them and I'm sure they'll stretch a little. I would be worried about sizing up and having clown shoes

If you are in the US, it doesn't seem too bad at $20-60 a pair. Still pretty cheap total for a pair of shoes

 

The last measurements Meermin sent me have the Olfe last 0.4 inches slimmer than Hiro and 0.8 inches longer.  That's for an 11UK.

Can anyone give me a cheat sheet on how the Rui compares to the olfe or hiro?

So I attempted to place an order for a pair of
Monks last week and have yet to receive y invoice to pay for them.

I have reached out to Pepe and luisa and have yet to hear back.

Could someone please advise if
I am doing something incorrectly or if they are just slow.
Thanks

It's xmas time and they are incredibly busy, I don't think many people realise how busy they actually are. MTO buys are out to 5 months I think I read. I wouldn't be surprised if they stop accepting orders for a month or so again to try and catch up. I'd like another pair of Meermin MTO sometime next year but being honest if there is a 5 month wait on them i'll likely buy another pair of Carmina instead.

Closed the order already today.Ill need the whole day to compile all the orders today.For those who have submitted some questions to Pepe, I hope to get all your answers soon. i will only submit the order once I receive your answers from Pepe.

I'm also trying to think what to add to this MTO to make it even more special apart from lasted shoe tress, special laces...any suggestions?smile.gif
post #3715 of 11986

lasted trees would be awesome.  as for laces, there's always shoelaceexpress.com.

post #3716 of 11986
5 months, lasted trees shouldn't be a problem.
post #3717 of 11986

Anything out of the scrap Radica.

Leather key chains ala Ghurka chains. Small oval scraps of Ilcea Radica fashioned into the key chain, signifying that you are a small " band of brothers", a secret society of paratrooping, anti Lobb infiltrators, and proud members of what might be the greatest group buy ever.
You had your shoes fashioned by a master maker, enabling you to march into the London Financial District without detection. My God, this does have a shoe making parallel to the British commandos, only you are using a Free Spanish shoe undergound to avoid City Centre detection. A fraternity of your own, laces and other flourishes pale in comparison to the "Meermin- Lobb" operation, the key chain as your identifier. Initials and shoe number will be part of a great, hyperbolic fabrication when the shoes are passed on to your descendants. "Granddad, did you serve on the front? No child, I was of the SF resistance, Pepe was our leader, Terrorsquad, our handler" The stories will be rich

Problem is I do not think the Chinese outworkers are adequately trained to make sized/lasted trees by hand (or the outworker fab has last copying machine).  But if it would be awesome if it can be done.

Great idea!  Key fobs, bracelets, belts (???), dog tags, business card holder/wallets (??), leather buttons?
