This shows the creasing on the shoes after about 4 hours wear with the left being far more pronounced. I feel they fit a tiny bit long but nothing serious

holy shitballs!

 

I'm wearing mine for the first time tomorrow, I pray to whoever is up there that they come out looking better than yours.

Hoping to grab a museum calf belt in the latest MTO.

Guys, you're fuckin killing me here! Emailed Pepe the pictures. Let's see what he says

What are you expecting to get out of this? A new pair?

post #5975 of 11326
Not at all! But if they've been badly made I'd expect something done about it even if that extends to a remake

I can 99% say that the last is too long for you, possibly even by 1cm can make this difference. I know because I had it on a pair of Grensons before I knew to only buy lasts I know that fit me.

What's happening is where it's creasing is where a certain part of your foot/big toe should be filling out that part of the shoe. But because it's not, when you walk it's collapsing and you are getting these creases, which are much deeper than regular creases. It's also probably worth remembering that leather is designed to crease, for obvious comfort reasons. But it relies on your foot being in the right place to crease in the right spots. I feel sorry for you because they are beautiful shoes.

I totally accept that hypothesis but why only one shoe? My big toe is actually further into the toecap on the left than the right. Gonna end up beaters which, after the wait and how they look is a fkn tragedy!

I'm sure Pepe would try his best to fix this for you.

My Museum MTO has splitting soles again! frown.gif
It seems that I'm the only one have problems with this split soles issues.
The welt area was coming loose and I could see the white threads stitching binding the leather and soles together. I took a picture and sent it to Pepe. He was quick to reply and told me that it doesn't look right and wanted me to send the shoes back for him to take a look. He offered to have it resoled.

I've shipped the shoes back and will have to wait a month for it again :/

Even bespoke shoes have creases, albeit significantly less than RTW, or one that has been sized properly. Always found that using shoe trees were helpful in reducing the creases post-wear.

These creases started pre-wear! During the first try on where I didn't even walk in them

OK so as previously suspected Pepe is a prince among men! His conclusion is that the shoes are in fact too big. Mea culpa. As I have two other pairs on MTO order in the same last he's offered to send me a pair in a smaller size to confirm fit. He's also providing insoles to correct the fit, despite me saying I don't expect him to correct my error! He says "I just want you to enjoy your shoes." Superstar!!

WIDE FEET SIZING.

Looking for second opinion before I order from Meermin. I usually wear US7.5, but can vary between US7 to US8. I've measured my width to be around EE. My actual measurements with socks is 255mm x 106mm. However my first toe is longer than my big toe, so if I measure my length to my big toe it's about 250mm. Though the balls and middle of my foot are wide, I don't believe my heels are extra wide.

Luisa from Meermin recommends I try UK7.5, but I've never had success with European shoes even in UK7 where I've found to have heel lift. Anything small and I can't fit my foot in the shoe since most are too narrow. Others here have spoken to Pepe directly so maybe I should request his advice?

I assume at this point the narrow lasts are out. But how about the Mos last used in their loafers and the Ama lasts used in their bluchers?

Your experiences are very much welcome.

Ozzy, glad that Pepe sorted that out for you. I agree, he is fantastic guy to deal with icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Ok, guys, for the plum museum calf MTO I have decided that we should do 2 styles for the adelaide:

 

 

Adelaide 1 (with brogueing on the toe cap)

 

 

 

 

 

Adelaide 2 (plain with no brogueing ala Carmina )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 but will be made similar to this one:

 

 

 

Also, I am thinking of having the soles painted dark red (similar to the plum museum colour) .

 

So let the orders begin. Please send me the following:

 

1) Full Name

2) Email

3) Shoe preference (adelaide (1), adelaide (2) or single monk ala JL Vale).

 

to this email address:

 

meerminmto@yahoo.com

 

I am working with Pepe on certain additional details that will make this MTO even more special compared to the last one but I will update all the participants via email. All the details of the shoe (including insole lining colour etc) will also be informed via email.

 

So far, based on the pre-orders I have, the response have been very encouraging icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
