Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 336

post #5026 of 11794

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?

Thank you OJ for your reply. 

 

On another note; can anyone with experience of the Olfe last give a brief description of how you perceive it?

 

Edit: On a third note; is toe iron installed in a regular purchase (if ordered) and not just in a MTO?

Anyone else interested in the 9 eye austerity brogue bal boot please let me know by pm including last (Olfe or New Rey) rubber or double leather sole and leather choice. Fine details still to be ironed out

I assume this is the StC boot people mentioned



I prefer the more classic approach.

Shame on you! When you selling them?
Nice rhyme BTW! Rey is on the table as the original member involved in this can only wear Rey. Size 13.5 Rey!!!! (Sorry Konda)
