I posted quite a few last comparisons in this thread already.  Ben is a slim last.

Seems like the welt finishing still has quality control problems with visible remains of plastic cover (or dust), and the lasting is not tight enough.  Still a great pair of shoes regardless!

I received the classic brown oxford I ordered in December today. I noticed on of the left shoe, there is a "air pocket" between the inside lining and the leather. The right shoe does not have this issue. Both shoe looks fine from the outside.

Is this a problem?

Yes, I think you're right but they were overshadowed by the heel crack :-)

Finally (!) got my meermins today! They are so beautiful! Dark brown DM on the hiro and snuff suede chukkas on the rui, both classic line. Both in the same size. The DMs fit perfectly, the chukkas a bit roomy but not too much. Not sending them back, but might try extra insoles. Might try 10.5UK (these are 11UK) if I order a pair of those gorgeous LWBs.

I'm in a search for a pair of double monks and the meermin db in hiro lasts interest me: http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2338
My pair of CJ hallams(348) fits me perfectly in US size 9E. Would I be correct in assuming a 8(UK) for these would fit me well?
Also, how would you say the quality for their classic line is compared to Allen edmonds? I'm also looking the AE neumoras as a choice, which one would you get?
Thanks.

The Dms look awesome. I'm looking at the same pair. How much did it turn out to be total? What was the process of ordering like and how long did it take?
Thanks!

I spent 355€ including shoe trees and shipping, excluded VAT. I'll probably have to pay Norwegian VAT as well, bringing the total up above 400€. Well worth it in my opinion. 

 

The process took forever, I ordered at a real bad time, just a couple of weeks after they launched the web shop functionality, and just before christmas. They were out of stock. Took exactly two months between placing the order and getting the shoes at my door. 

 

Ordering was really easy, though.

Herr Brun, what photo of chukkas is closer to real color? Much lighter than at there website and less saturated.

And what do you think about toe box shape? I will be very grateful if you take a photo of them upside down (maybe on your foot).

The photo of them upside down will have to wait, but the darker photo is MUCH closer to the actual color. And even that one looks a bit on the light side. The color is quite dark. 

 

The shape was not quite what I expected, they are a bit less round than I thought. They are sleeker before the toes start, and a bit wider in the toe box. If you understand what I mean.

 Just based on the shape, stay away from the neumoras. They're horribly squared at the toe. The meermins have a much cleaner look IMO

Thank you, but I definitely cannot realize what photo is darker, the first or the second? smile.gif

 

To all

Is Meermin's suede on par with one that is used by Carmina or C&J?

Did anyone that is a true "D" width have any luck with the New Rey last?

post #4169 of 11764

I'm confident I'm a D width (so UK E) and I have a pair of Adelaide oxfords on the New Rey. Jose sent me a UK 7 instead of the UK 6.5 wholecuts on the Ama that I ordered prior to that, and they fit quite well. Only thing is after a long day with plenty of walking, my smallest toe starts to hurt.

 

So I wouldn't say it's that bad, but it's not an ideal fit like what I can from Vass' U last.

To you veterans on the forum. If I have 10F in the MH71 last from G&G, 10F in Edward Green 888 last and 10E in Crockett & Jones 335 last. Do you think the Olfe last will be to tight fitting and maby need some adjustment to the width if i make a MTO order?

I am bit worried because of the width, when i saw that Olfe last was only E in width. My feet are a little wider than normal, therefore I must have 10F in Edward Green and G&G. But both these companies are doing quite tight shoes. In C&J, I have​​10E and it fits well.

Is there anyone here who has 10F (UK) and ordered the Olfe last?
