I just wish they would up the variety of tan/lighter shoes with spring/summer right around the corner.

Anyhow...I had the oxford 101273 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1925 and believe me, they look way better on real than on pic! they are AMAZING! I'm used to church's that not later than a year ago I thought be the best shoes you can find around , well those are on another planet as look and general quality feeling, for 1\3 of the price! 

 

I simply love the Hiro last, is bit more pointy than in pics but are a beauty... also the double monks are amazing btw, they look like the william 2 lobb (as shape :p) ,I'll never have the money to buy them so dunno about the quality biggrin.gif

 

anyhow, now I can say it , it doesn't get any better than meermin if you're 20\30\40 years old and you cant' spend more than 2\300 euro for a pair of shoes! Loake,Allen Edmonds  may be same\better quality but they don't look even remotely as nice! Will buy all my shoes from them from now on ,found my Graalicon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif

That's the pair that I've gotten so far and you're right, the look in person is amazing.  It's refined and professional without being agressive.  I had ordered the regular stitched oxford, but because of QC issues they weren't going to be able to ship it in time for a trip I was taking.  Instead, Luisa offered to express ship the reverse stitched in their place and I'm very glad it worked out that way.  I now have the dark brown double monks and the black wholecuts from the classic line on order as well as the burgundy side stiched oxford from the maestro.  I'm definitely a fan.

 

Anyway, good luck on the next order.

I cannot find any information about their MTO program on the website (contact, process etc.) I sent an email via the "contact" section but had no answer.

Have I just missed something or is the program cancelled/ currently on hold due to the huge order volumes?

I took these pictures when I received my pair in the fall, along with a few other goodies.
I would say that they are pretty sleek, but a bit on the conservative side compared to some of the more narrow lasts they offer.
There was a pair of Burgundy wholecuts that were uploaded to Meermin's tumblr recently. They should give you a better idea of how they will look.

I wanted to go Maestro too on the beginning but honestly in my work environment I'll be the one with the nicest looking shoes also with the Classic line, so I rather save 100 euro and buy my self 2 handmade shirts smile.gif (I got a guy who makes them totally mto for 55 euro,they still forever and fit like a glove) .

 

I also wanted the stiched ones, but dunno the stichless kind of grew on me while I was choosing so I went for the feeling! Did the right thing they look awesome! 

 

I really believe if you can't go for C&J Lobb or EG , Meermin are the nicest looking shoes around (I really don't like Vass style and Carmina is bit more "old" looking to me..)

dunno Meermin is elegant but modern, I guess everyone has his own idea in those matters thoughsatisfied.gif not really something you can say one is right or wrong!

I only sized down 0.5 from my AE 5 last.

The New Rey last used in most of the Linea Maestro line is very narrow. Reminds me a bit of the AE 2 last. The standard fit in New Rey is 'E' width. Just looking at the Meermin last chart, I made a judgement call that I was not going to fit into a standard New Rey last at my normal size. The choice was either to go up in width or go up in size (length+width). I went with going up in just width (8.5E --> 8.5EE) for my MTO.

Here's a visual comparison of my AE Strand 9D (5 last), Meermin Classic 8.5 (Hiro last), Meermin Linea Maestro MTO 8.5EE (New Rey last)






Incidentally, I just received the Meermin Classic shoe in Hiro last. Took about 5 weeks from date of order. Including time to install the metal toe taps.

Thanks for those pictures. Very helpful.
post #4585 of 10973
Sorry for the complete noob question, but I have read through a bunch of the pages and I can't figure out what size would be best for me. I wear a 10.5 D in AE and Alden on the Tremont last.

The shoes I am looking at are on the New Rey last, so what should I be looking for size wise? Thanks for the help
post #4586 of 10973
My guess would be 10.5 on the New Rey, which is a very slim last and usually requires a half size up (but they use UK sizing which means a regular last like the Hiro will use half a size down).

FYI if you email them a sketch of your foot they will recommend a size for you.

I personally find the Hiro last to be a bit chunky and I'm not a huge fan of it for dress shoes. Put it on a more casual offering like the grain double monks, and it's a whole different story.

For me the Hiro rests in a sweet spot between the clunky, agressive AE and the sleek, but exaggerated, Magnanni.  I can definitely understand, however, if your tastes differ.  What I see as clunky, many see as solid, and my exaggerated is considered by others to be bold.

No. The New Rey is E- which is very equivalent to a UK D or a US B. The New Rey is also extremely good for a low instep foot unlike the HIRO or the AMA.

If Hiro last is chunky, there's no sleek lasts in all major brands.
