This is also appearent on:

http://www.macsamillion.co.uk/crockett-jones-hallam-shoe-in-black-calf/p94.

 

Perhaps it's unavoidable. The brown captoe from Meermin Classic seems to be great value however.

 

Kind regards,

Johan.

I think it's most apparent on the second link -- and any models with the reverse captoe.  I think someone had pictures of that model earlier in the thread, and it looked thicker there as well

3. What's the delivery schedule like? Will they be ready for fall?

 

Thanks!

2. What shoes do you normally wear? Width and size in either UK or US measurements.

3. Yes. Fall is 4 months away. They'll be ready by end August beginning of September.

Thanks! I have no idea what my width is, my shoe collection is not that extensive yet. I usually wear a UK10 for brands such as Santoni, Magnanni and Suitsupply. My feet are 29cm long and 10cm wide, and Luisa advised me to order a UK10 when I was ordering my Meermin loafers, which are on the Ron last.

Thanks for the help. Do you think a UK10 would be fine for these boots?

I'm afraid I have no knowledge of the Ron last but I'm going with my regular size as I find New Rey a little narrow so reckon the little extra width should be perfect. I sized down half for my Rui order tho.
Drop Luisa another email re how Olfe and Ron compare.

sorry long time from the post,

 

I ordered black oxford (hiro last ,classic line) ; I compare them to Church's, Prada, Ferragamo, Gucci's ... etc...

First of all let me tell you I'm Italian so is not some kind of hate vs italian products, but this http://store.prada.com/it/IT/man/footwear/lace-ups/4E2339_OLE_F0C9G IMHO is coplete shit... 

I'd not wear them if they'd give me 10$ everytime! 

They not only look awfull , but are also made really really badly!

 

Taste is indeed a subjective matter (altough one could question those big brands... ) , but price and quality isn't. Church's are around 550 euro in Italy, leather is coming from exactly the same places, goodyear welted both, style well depend on taste (I like better meermin), quality seems pretty similar (I've 2 pair of church's, my dad 10 ) ...

 

only difference is one costs 150 euro the other one 550! 

 

About Prada,gucci etc... 90% of their shoes are not even goodyear, if you'd ever want to resole them(assuming they don't fall apart after 6 month as they do) you can't!

 

I mean is just ridicolous for the amount of money you pay!

Buongiorno :)

 

What a comprehensive and enjoyable answer you delivered. It is comparative knowledge such as this that is useful to beginners who mostly see big marketing ads by big conglomerates such as Prada. I will most definitely take your advice and stick with Meermin.

 

Cordiali saluti,

Johan.
