^^Where, mine have creased fine?
post #5942 of 11379
Just from a quick try on one of them has creased just behind the toecap from the welt to about an inch and a half up. Dread to think how it'll progress with actual wear! On a positive note I brushed out the slight transit scuffs and aside from the toes being pretty dark (burnished?) They look amazing. Might also be too big tho. Feck!!

I also got some unusual creasing and odd rippling on one side heal area. I try not to get worked up about it since leather creases. It is a crease pattern I haven't seen before though.

Sadly I could not get the sizing right which means I will stay away from future MTO. My hat goes off to TerrorSquad for organizing all of this. I may still join the chukka order, I figure I can order half a size larger and wear it with thicker socks. Good luck with that plum museum calf I would definitely recommend that you guys avoid perforations and stick with plain toes either Carmina Adelaide or plain toe monk.

I sold my Hiros already so there is a happy ending.

On the facing.  Think its due to pattern cutting/lasting lining.  What do you think?

 

p.s., only on the left, perfect on the right.

I had that on the side of mine even before trying on, think leather wasn't properly stretched out? Kind of hard to see exactly but close to the center



Can't complain for 260 euros

Could be, or it could be the improper parts of the leather hide were used.

 

Not a big deal for the price and it isn't visible from 3 feet away.  But then beyond certain price point or if its a bespoke pair, I would definitely demand a remake.  Yes I do expect perfection.

 

p.s., you can really see how they didn't have enough seam allowance at the end/edge of the toe cap.

p.s.s., the insole dimples are gone for this museum calf MTO; instead there's nail holes.  insole dimples were apparent in my previous MTO from last year about the same timeframe and very apparent in my other hand welted shoes (JLP)

Usually see those creases when they are too long, is the fit ok?

This is the thing.  Sometimes you get odd creasing, especially along the side, if the welting/soling is uneven - often squeaks too.  But creasing like this behind to toe cap looks like a sizing issue.

 

It's funny, I was just reading something on "Put This On" (new to me) about going up a size if a shoe is too narrow, as if that were a good thing.  The problem is usually exactly as above.  Many times we read "size up on the XYZ last as it fits small", and maybe that's the case.  But I think it's often that the last, especially in high-end English brands, and Meermin's Linea Maestro, is just too narrow for your foot.

I haven't walked in them! Tried them , stood up and rocked back and forth in them to see how they felt. They're maybe a tiny bit long but are pretty perfect width wise. I'm really concerned about my MTO boots now as I don't think I could size down in this last

Interesting Ozzy. I will have to look at mine. I have a pair of Vass that have similar creases.

It looks like your toes were burnished.

That's what I thought! No one else's are like that are they?
post #5955 of 11379
Mine were not burnished.

Gyasih, funny that you mentioned it but my Vass U last also has the same creases as well as my C&J Lowndess;i sized up for both shoes too.
