Are those MTO? They look awesome!

I think those are the new double rubber soled monks.  I ordered the scotch grain option a couple months ago.  Now, hoping they come sooner than later drool.gif

They are from the classic collection. Just drop Pepe a mail and ask about them. They started the production about a month ago, so I guess they will be on the website sooner or later.

I was thinking of picking up a pair of pebble grain wingtips from Meermin as some beater shoes, however, they're on the RUI last. I have a slightly narrow foot, and I already don't like the look of RUI too much. Is this not the right shoe for me?

Was this a typo?

You're size 10Us and 9UK on 348... but ordered a 10UK? Wouldn't that be more like a US11? This seems quite off.




If I'm a slightly narrow 11US, UK 10 on 348, should I order a UK 10 in New Rey? Or is Quadcammer's sizing more accurate? I'm skeptical.

I'm a slightly narrow UK9 and was advised to size up by a half. I went against this advice and went TTS and find the shoes tight across the instep and in the toebox. I would size up but not by a whole size. Depends on your foot shape tho.

Yeah, but I'm not buying from the LM line (or ordering MTO), but from the classic line. I'm a student.

To be honest, I was enamored with the shoes, despite the new rey probably not working for my foot. I have a fairly wide foot. The 10s in US and the 9 in the 348 are tight...probably too much so. to avoid that, I scanned a trace of my foot and sent it to luisa. She recommended the 10. I probably could have gone with the 9.5, but like I said, I just wear slightly thicker socks and used a tongue pad.

Its not ideal, but it works.

The Rui last is very comfortable for a wide foot.  It's wider than the AE 5 last, but I found it fit fairly similar to Andrew Lock's benchgrade captoe.  12US/11UK in all three.

Interesting, as I have both AL's captoe and AE 5 last shoes.

If you had a slightly narrow foot, would you still size up half a size? Should I ask Meermin?

I'd probably go half size up, yes.

Forgot to mention I'm a D width in the AE's.  I went TTS for the Rui last, but probably could have sized down 1/2 size.
