To introduce this more elegant type of monkstrap is probably one of the smarter moves from Meermin to pull. Unfortunately, they had to come up with two styles with medallion. I'd contemplate purchase if one style was with medallion and one without.

It may sound like whine but it's a preference of mine. I'd contemplate purchase if one style was with medallion and one without.

Helps me keeping my cash in my pocket, though

Heh educated guess. Many times the disgust for double monks goes hand in hand with disgust for split toes - they are both aesthetically challenging. But like I said, worry not! You'll soon find yourself owning plenty of both. I speak from experience.

Noooooooooooo! A newfound obsession with checked sports coats and MOP buttons us bad enough! I'll content myself with many pairs of dandyesque balmoral boots!!

They're not mutually inclusive; I love my double monks but can't stand split toes, and I'm a Norwegian as well!

And strangely I have no problem with Norwegian camel toe!

I take an E shoe and prefer a bit of extra width in the toe box. Do you think Hiro last is going to be the best fit for me? I am going to put in a first trial order from the classic collection. Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

If you like a bit more room, you might try something using the Ama last then see how that feels.  At the worst you have a roomy shoe instead of a pair that's too tight.

+1. Love monks, hate split toes, but am only half Norwegian.

Has Meermin removed the option of purchasing shoe trees? I can't seem to find them in the accessory department.

Last time I asked them they were out of stock and guessing they still must be - even when I ordered back in Feb they weren't on the accessories page.

Burgundy single monk with brogue

Dark brown suede and leather SM with brogue

 

It's good to see they're working hard on increasing the offerings but it's gonna play Hell on my finances.

Those are both gorgeous.

 

I can't afford so many shoes. How much do these run? I keep buying Carminas. Need to try some of these.

Agreed. Four months ago I was looking for suede single monks under $400 and thought that was a budgetary stretch and a style stretch.

 

Now I have Carmina Double Monks with toe taps installed. Outside the budget and outside the comfort zone. But the shoes are gorgeous. They let me get rid of my Macy's house brand square toed slip ons.

Were there last week! But the women's section is completely empty so maybe they have no stock

Does anyone have any thoughts about oxfords (any brand) that would fit well if a size 8.5 shoe on the Rui last is about the narrowest width and lowest instep that's wearable? My best fitting pair of shoes are 9.5 (US) Santoni Jensens, but they're too long (the toe cap is creased).

 

Am I basically looking at wide Aldens or Allen Edmonds or what?
