Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 365

post #5461 of 11029
Thanks for the hint regarding post #801, I did indeed not know about it.

I am not a fan of overly sleek or chiseled lasts.
New Rey for example seems too narrow and elongated for my liking.
C&J 348 is too chiseled, as is EG 888.

I own a pair of Vass F last and like it, as I did the C&J 337 last when I tried on a pair. C&J 341 too looks very interesting, as do EG 82 and 202.
I am not familiar with the AS and G&G lasts.

JL 7000 seems to be the sweet spot between sleekness and a conservative look.
Would you agree Olfe is it's equivalent and Hiro similiar but slightly wider?

My tassel loafers arrived last week, and I finally got a chance to wear them, as the weather is great today! All in all the whole process took 1,5 months.

The loafers look absolutely amazing, the color and suede are very nice. The construction quality is definitely not what you'd expect from €170 shoes, it's much, much better.

The last is a little narrow, especially in the toebox area. They fit a little snug when I put them on this morning, but they've stretched out a little during the day, and they fit perfectly now. If I sized up half a size they probably would've been too big.

I hope they offer the tassel loafers in navy suede with unifinished welts soon.

I've been eyeing this pair for a while now. Can someone comment on whether the colour is somewhat darker like on the meermin website or as the photo above? Also, any idea of brands- lasts I can try on to get an idea of the fit would be helpful.

 

Thanks in advance

They look really excellent, nice one

Dear gentlemen,

 

Excuse me for interrupting the conversation. I'm considering group MTO the 9 eyes balmoral boots that are same/ similar with EG shannon (i.e. punched captoe, leather+suede or all leather, double leather sole with toe tap, etc.)  I've already gathered 4 or 5 orders. So if anyone's interested, please PM or reply me... I'm hoping we can get this case finished in 2 weeks.

 

(according to Pepe, the more orders we have, the more variation he could do)

 

Cheers

Ian

That color is accurate when in daylight, but they do come off as dark brown like on the website when indoors.

I had a hard time deciding too! I'm sure the leather ones are very nice as well. I live in the EU, so no duties for me, just the standard 21% VAT.

Ok thanks. I think Im gonna get the suede ones. Do you have any shoes on the Hiro last? Kind of wanted a more sleeker shoe than the Hiro.

Hey guys, wanting to order the double monks. However, I'm stuck on sizing. I wear a 9.5 in Allen Edmonds. Should I be getting a 8.5 in the Meermin? Also, I noticed the hiro last an E width, I usually wear a D; will I be okay with these?

Nope, this is my first pair of Meermins. I don't know how the Hiro is, but the loafers are pretty sleek.

Mike, "E" width in the UK is "C width" in the US, generally, and I think Meermin use the UK width measures for reference.  So you might want to go up to a 43, but someone else might be able to tell you from experience with the same size and last.

post #5475 of 11029

Uh, isn't the "E" width in the UK a "D" for US?
