Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 314

post #4696 of 11026
Sorry for probably the umpteenth post on this, I couldn't quite figure out a consensus be searching the thread. I want to check my sizing for the double monks (Hiro last). I'm a 10.5D in basically every dress shoe I've ever put on (AE especially). Looks like on the Meermin size chart I want the UK 9.5, but most other size charts say that US 10.5 should be UK 10. Go with the UK 9.5? I really don't want to get the size wrong as returns seem like a huge hassle.

I am almost the same size as you (10.5 E in AE) and have a pair of Meermim bluchers (Ama last) in 9.5, and they're the right size. You can and should consult with them about it, obviously.

Last year I had the same dilemma as you. I wear an 8D AE PA. I kept going back and forth between 7.5UK and 7UK. I used Meermin's whole draw your foot on the paper thing. They told me 7UK. I was still uncertain and asked if 7.5UK would be better. Luisa said yes to the 7.5UK after I mentioned it. So in my mind I was thinking they will just say yes to whatever and won't agonize over sizing like the customer will. I kept thinking abou it more and settled on 7UK. I'd rather the shoe be a little snug than loose.

 

In the end, the length was fine, but the width at the ankle is too wide for me. I get heel slippage with the straps at the tightest setting, but it's not a huge deal for me. I wear them happily. It might just be that the last doesn't work well with my foot.

 

Also as has been mentioned previously, the quality control is not great. My left shoe out of the box didn't lay 100% flat on the floor. When I put both shoes down, the left shoe would wobble ever so slightly back and forth whereas the right one would stay flat. The left shoe is also the one that feels looser and has more heel slippage. My feet are symmetrical and I noticed these problems right out of the box before trying them on.

 

In any case, I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning the shoes (international shipping, extended wait times, etc). I just wear them and I like them.

Definitely 9.5UK. I'm a 9.5D in AE and I find that the Hiro last in 8.5UK to be a bit roomy.

My black calf oxfords on the Rui last arrived yesterday. Whilst it took two months from order to arrival, I'm glad I stuck it out.

I wanted to dip my toes in with the Classic, but now I've confirmed sizing (EEE fittings can be a pain) will take the plunge on a pair of the shell Linea Maestros.

Thanks for the lively discourse/recollections of your experiences, it was the push I needed to place the order.

How did you size in these compared to other brands?  Do they fit like a typical EEE width shoe?

I can only compare it to an AE EEE (can't recall the last, sorry), and both fit acceptably!

I drew an outline of my foot, with measurements, and emailed it to them. They advised which lasts/sizes would be suitable, and were pretty much on the money.

Can anyone comment on the fit and quality of their loafers? I'm afraid of ordering them without being able to try them on. http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1938

Not familiar with AE lasts, but I'm a UK 9.5/US10.5 in Loake 024, 026 and Capital, and Hiro in UK9.5 fits me really well.
Would definitely go for 9.5 and not 10.

I read through the first 100+ pages of this thread looking for info about the loafers. That search turned up a few pics of tassel loafers but nothing else besides questions.

 

My penny loafers (light brown calf, size 9.5) shipped today (ordered Feb 27). I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on the quality of construction, but I would be happy to take some detail pics once they arrive, which could still be some time from now.
