People above are saying they sized down 1 and it fits them perfectly, instead of .5 (which is what I did).

What problems are caused by using shoe trees? puzzled.gif

It's not using trees in general, it's importing them from Europe to the US that is the problem. Wood falls under some category for US customs that requires more paperwork and likely fees. Maybe because it's considered an agricultural product? That's why people in the US are avoiding ordering the trees.

Also, better err on the big side than ordering shoes that might be too small.

My bad. I meant they cause problems with customs. Edited my original post to clarify.

I'm 9.5D in the 5 last without insole and I get heal slippage with the Hiro dub monks in 8.5UK.

They usually advise sizing down 1 for the classic line but a half size for the Linea Maestro. Of course, that's because of the lasts they use, but that also means you might get lucky. The half size down you chose could work out well for you. I'm a size 7D on AE's 5-last, and I ordered a whole size down for the classic line double monks. If I receive them before your order is finalized, I'll try to leave some feedback on here as to the fit, and that may help you make a final choice.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind when ordering.

 

Going to Barcelona in the end of may and checking out the Carmina store, so if I choose to get dubmonks from their store in Barca I probably won't buy dub monks from Meermin.

Agreed, go for 9.5. I'm UK 9.5 on both lasts (026 and Hiro), and I couldn't have sized down.

Can any of you guys guess what last this is made in?

I found it on their Tumblr site. It's an MTO completed early December.

My parents arent too happy. hahaha

 

I'm in Toronto as well and was wondering if you could let me know how much (as well as duties and taxes) your shoes came out to.

They look awesome and I'm itching to order a couple of pairs.

Thanks!

Sounds great, do you have any shoes on the Rui last? Considering a pair of derbys and/or chukkas but they are on the Rui last and not the Hiro (which I think I'm a UK9.5 in).

 

Checked out the picture of the different lasts, but the difference doesn't seem significant. (E width and EE width)

No, unfortunately not. Talk to "Herr Brun" back at Diskusjon though, he has shoes on both Rui and Hiro.

Are you looking at the karangrain longwings from the classic collection by chance? I'm close to pulling the trigger on them myself.
