konda, would you mind sharing more details on that info?

I have a low instep and, like you said, found New Ray to fit fine, despite my feet being pretty wide. 

AMA didn't fit me at all so I agree with you here as well.

 

I kind of fancied ordering one of the HIRO dub monks, but wanted to have some idea of how it would fit.

Do you think it's a bad idea?

Thanks!

So you guys are saying if one is a 7.5D in AE Park Ave, a 7 UK will suffice?

Finally going to have my shoes in hand on Thursday. Anxiousness is taking over.

I went a full size up for Meermin's Hiro last versus AE so I don't know where the 1/2 size difference comes in unless you're speaking specifically of the New Rey last, which is very narrow.  As I told someone else in this thread the other day, contact Meermin and ask them what they think as they are in the best position to give you proper information.

Thanks for taking the pic.

Wow, perhaps my monitor is off, but this looks like a totally different color than Meermin's stock photo for the light brown calf.http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1950

Once you get the shoes in-hand, could you please post another photo as well as your impression of the color?

Thanks.

Has anyone received an email response from Sandro between Thursday and today?

Yes, I said the same thing. I thought maybe it was the lighting, but it could be they screwed up my order (but that color looks amazing aswell). My father is actually partly color blind so his word insn't the best ! haha. I will post a picture on Thursday, no worries!

Hm..you may be right. Either way, I think both look beautiful so I am not terribly upset.

Kenjias:
For starters about the width of the New Rey. It says E- on the Meermin webpage. Also having tried various AE A, B and C lasts I find the New Rey to match an AE B width.

Then about the instep. I think you could survive a Hiro last but would definitely need to correct your instep with tongue pads. A good idea is to try on a pair of AE Neumora double monks if possible. If you can manage those with tongue pads, then the Hiro should be fine. Just my 2 C tho.

Is here anyone who ordered since the start of the year? What is the state of your order?

 

It's been 6 weeks since my last updated ("order initiated").

 

 

Now, I understand there can be delays. However, when I asked Louisa on what is the state of my order I received the following response:

 

"Dear Sir,

When the shoes will be ready to ship we advise you."

 

 

Honestly, it's not the delay that pissed me off, it's this response. I thought they pride themselves on customer service, this, to me, is anything but. Especially, since in her last response (2 weeks before, same questions), she responded by reminding me the waiting time is 30 days.

Will depend on last. I'm a 9.5D in AE Fifth Ave, and a 8.5UK in the Olfe last is a perfect fit (I'd even say it's a tiny bit wider in the toe box than the 9.5D). An 8.5UK in the Hiro last (double monks) gives me a bit of heel slippage and a noticeably more room in the toe box.

There are two colours of the snuff suede, dark brown and light brown. Which one looks better?

Sorry in advance for another sizing question.

 

For people going up a half size from their standard UK length to fit the New Rey last (alternatively, down 0.5 from US length), would you actually fit lengthwise had your foot been a little narrower? I've asked Meermin but it's tough to say for sure, since complicating matters is that my feet are different lengths.

 

A lot of people in the thread said that the Olfe and Hiro are both around a D, maybe a little wider in some cases. Then the New Rey jumps all the way down to a B, when it's described as only one size down (E-) at Meermin's site.

 

I'm trying to gauge if I would fit at the "correct" length, since my foot is a C width (US). Maybe the shoe will stretch out a little?

Always, always choose a fitting width first and only then the length. When you use a snug last, the size you take can be 0.5 sizes too long and it makes no difference on how the shoe fits. Shoes primarily fit because of a good last width and instep, not because of the length. Length is only a secondary or tertiary concern when choosing shoes.

 

If you have a Brannock measured US C width not borderlining B/C, I'm saying you can forget about the New Rey from this point on. It will not fit your feet. Choose the next width up and compensate with tongue pads, if necessary. If heel slippage will be your only problem in Olfe, Hiro or Ben lasts, you can fix it with tongue pads and insoles.

 

A forcefully stretched shoe will never fit perfectly. Don't even consider that.
