for the bal boot, go with olfe. new rey is a finnicky last, best suited for the narrow footed

 

How would one define a narrow foot? (it's not a retorical question). Is there any part of the foot where NR is especially narrow?

In my experience really only in the toe box but it is quite low too so I found it tight across the vamp.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a sizing question. I am interested in some brown oxfords on the Olfe last.

 

I have a pair of AE Elgins in 8.5D. They fit ok, on the long side but slightly narrow for part of my toes. I measured the length of my foot to be 260mm long by 99mm wide. Which Meermin size would someone recommend? Judging by the size chart, a 7 might be too narrow (97mm) but too long (272mm), and the length only gets worse as you increase width.

 

Am i out of luck for this last?

Today would be the 30-day mark in the order of my double monks, but I received an email this morning saying that production has been delayed another 15 days. At least they updated me on that, but with shipping, I guess that will push my order time towards the higher-end of the 1-2 month estimate. I wish I could say I think about it less often, but that would be a lie. I'm still really looking forward to them.

Which double monks did you order? I'm around 1 month of a wait for the dark brown calf.

I went for the simple snuff suede ones from the classic line (to see how the sizing is on that last).

It's just a standard order with no custom options of any sort.

Just so you know, I haven't been asked for payment yet either.

I contacted Luisa yesterday about getting this model made in the Olfe last instead of Hiro.   She responded, very quickly I might add, and said that this was impossible to do and that they could not do it.  Then she apologized for the inconvenience - seemed like a nice lady.

 

Is this congruent with everybody elses experience with Meermin?  Are they just not doing any last variations currently?  I had thought they did this in the past.

 

Thanks in advance.

They are all nice people. Their selection is however, somewhat limited.

 

Last variations without suffering MTOupcharge? Similar to your enquiry I asked them if they could make http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1982 in brown, as I couldn't seem to find any suitable oxford in brown calf that appealed to me. Unfortunately, I was directed to Pepe and MTO.

 

Kind regards,

Johan.

This surprises me! I had my LM punched whole cuts made in black (to my eternal regret) without suffering the up charge. I had to wait 8 weeks for them tho!

I would think changing lasts is completely different than just changing leather color or soles. They'd have come up with all new patterns for the leather cutting, plus probably modify other parts of the process. It's far different than just substituting a different leather.
