I just received my first order from Meermin.  I have a mixed first impression.  I ordered both a pair of black NST bluchers (http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1946) and a pair of snuff chukkahs (http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2200).  The bluchers are on the Rui but are significantly narrower than the chukkahs in the same size.  They would fit a 8.5D well, but do not accommodate my 8.5E feet--I would hate to see how narrow the New Rey must be.  I'll put these up for sale if someone wants them before sending them back to Spain.  As a plus, I cannot find any irregularities or defects with them.  They look great, but just don't fit.  The chukkahs fit much better, similarly do no have any real irregularities or defects so I'll likely keep them.  I also ordered a snuff belt, which is at least two inches shorter than the size I ordered.  Oh well...  By comparison, they compare favorably to calf AEs (the leather quality appears to be about the same, though the finishing on the Meermins is slightly better), though are certainly a step below calf Aldens.

Classic Collection PTB

 

 

I ordered these at the beginning of February and received today.  First impressions are good.  There are a couple minor issues (tiny nick in the leather at the top of one shoe and the ends of the welt could have been joined more smoothly) that aren't worth sending them back for.  The website ( http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2341 ) says they have switched suppliers for the leather on this model but I'm not sure if this is the new or old.  It's certainly brighter and has more contrast than what is shown on the website.

For people who have experience of both Meermin (Classic & LM) and Crockett & Jones (BG & HG), which brand do you perceive gives the most value? And by how much? 

 

Kind regards,
Johan.

Gutted! Got the punched whole cut Norwegian in black and really wish I'd gone with the antic burgundy. Those are nice!

I've got two pairs that I'll be putting on the bay for sale if no interest here in UK6.5

They're unfortunately slightly too tight width wise for me hence selling (only received 2 weeks ago)

Worn the DM once only, the other are brand new unworn. I want 160EUR for the oxford lace and 130EUR

Will sort out photos when I can, please PM me if interested

Okay so the Rui in 6.5 UK fits me very good, but Hiro in 6.5 UK is very tight width wise. So for my next orders, do you think I should purchase 6.5 UK and stretch them, or go up to 7 UK?
post #5141 of 10145

Wait... a HIRO 6.5 is good in length but tight in width... and you're considering taking a bigger size of 7? Clearly the last is too snug for you. Why would you even consider buying a shoe that doesn't fit? Based on what you are writing your feet are too wide for HIRO and this is something you just need to live with and use Ruis and, if it is not too snug, Amas.

Are they really tight? My New Reys were really uncomfortable for the first couple of wears but are great now. I'd give the pair you've worn another day or two wear before selling, don't imagine it affecting resale value too much

They were ok when I first put them on but after a few hours it was getting abit painful. The last is definitely smaller than I'm used to - I'll give it another go before reselling though not sure it will make the difference I'm after if that makes sense..

For those that have classic collection calf and suede models, how much did each stretch after several wearings?

Has anyone with meermin captoes reflected on that the captoe itself is very prominent for lack of a better word? I don't yet own a pair (waiting eagerly for the museum calf MTO). On their website pics, it really looks like a think extra piece of leather has been sewn on the toe (which I know it has, but it looks so thick and obvious compared to other captoe), which puts me off.

And I really wish they would stop using Hiro and New Ray as their standard lasts. Ben or Olfe would be OK, but why not make a real chisel toe like TG73 or EG888? I would buy at least 4 pairs in a heart beat.
