Thanks for posting!

Will check with Pepe for updates; he must be super busy since he has not yet replied to my last email to him.

Just received my shoes this morning!

 

2 weeks ago, I made a last minute request for Meermin to change my black wholecuts to a captoe, and told him I'd need them by this weekend. 

 

Here they are!

 

Hiro Double Monks and Hiro Cap Toes. Compared to my Carmina Simpson Cap Toes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a few imperfections on the shoes, and I can see why some SF members would demand an exchange. For me, it just isn't worth the hassle, and the quality of materials used on this line IMO far exceed that of Loake 1887, Barker, Cheaney, and AE, while the finishing is comparable. Also, IMO the Hiro last works much better on the monks than it does on the on the cap toe. 

 

I still very much prefer the aesthetic details of my Carmina cap toes over the Meermin version, but they are over twice the cost. 

 

For 135 Euros afer vat, these are an insane deal. I'm glad I can finally see what all the excitement is about.

Which sole is better for wet to dry conditions (going from wet outdoor to dry, possibly slicker indoor surfaces-York or Dainite?

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.

I skimmed the thread too, but couldn't find much either. Anyway, I'm looking forward to your pictures!

Danite, imo. Full rubber > Combo of rubber/leather.

I want to buy hiro double monk.
When I'm looking at his web side (size chart) I see- 9 UK- witdh 102mm, tall 289mm

Are they size larger than normal ?

Could you tell me 9 UK or 8,5UK will be good for me?

My foot is 27cm long, when I measure like this:

I have 9UK Markowski balmoral shoes, fit me like a glove- almost too small.
My foot looks:

I want another pair as well! But as a second year college student, its tough. I have to actually save money but this damn forum has me addicted. I work for a major airport in advertising and sponsorship (intern for 4 months) and everyone looks at me and says, where did you get [insert article here].

 

My parents arent too happy. hahaha

Just curious if you ordered trees with the shoes?

Got this dark brown oxford last 2 week and wear them few times. I am happy with the leather quality, however there is a disappointment that i found a crack between te welt and outsole along the shoes juz after few wearing , damn horrible with the craftmenship!

I know the price of my shoes is unexpectedly low compared with my other english shoes, but meermin need work harder on QC.
