Anybody order a shell MTO boot yet? Trying to see if I want bal boot or a derby boot.

Don't want a shoe to crease?

 

Don't wear it.

 

Seriously, some people... facepalm.gif

Creasing is as expected, however I will say that I think they had done something different with the throat/opening of the shoe, where your foot goes in, as this is a

a lot sloppier than on my previous par of Meermin's.

I am getting some heel slip, however my bigger concern is the bellowing/flexing of the side leather, shouldn't cause any major aesthetic problems, just a bit of

weird feeling when walking.

 

I actually find having to loosen up all the laces and use a shoe horn (not a must, but it helps) to slip my feet in. I get a nice, snug fit once I've managed to do so, however. With the other three pairs of Meermins I have (New Rey and Ama), I don't really need to use a shoe horn.

 

I don't experience any heel slippage with these museums.

I've got a MTO cap toe with broguing + medallion a month or less away, got sent photos of it ready to be lasted last week. Pretty excited to see how it turns out. I got it on the rui last because I wanted a rounded and more country type feel to it.

Wow, lots of discussion on MTO and QC at the moment. Hoping some folks can provide a second opinion on Meermin sizing for wide feet.

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.

Thanks looking forward to seeing photos. Thinking green shell but not sure about details yet so trying to get some ideas.

Let me know if you have a good experience, ordering the right size. I'm usually US7.5 and my foot measures 25.5cm x 10.6cm, so I'm my feet are even wider than yours. Luisa also told me to go with UK7.5, but I don't just quite trust this. I'm trying to understand how the wider lasts fits for other people. I'm eliminating all shoes with their narrow last, especially with the recent posts about abnormal creasing, which is probably due to longer lasts on people with wider feet.

I believe my brannock measurement was an 8e, but I had to go wider on the two pairs that I have now since they run narrow. my approximate foot measurement is 26cm by 10.2cm

Do Meermin do green shell? I was under the impression they only did light/dark brown, burgundy and black. Red, green, blue, etc would be welcome options.

Try the Rui last in your normal Uk size (US -1). It's a surprisingly roomy last, with a nice amount of height in the toebox and through the instep. Can't say I'd be trying to fit in anything Meermin makes if I was more than an American EE or maybe E, though, unless you special order a wider fitting.

Good idea. I will send them an outline as well. But I'm probably a RUI last as well given the feedback here.

I drew an outline of my foot, with measurements, and emailed it to them. They advised which lasts/sizes would be suitable, and were pretty much on the money.

Thanks.

Why the 'tude? Shoes crease, no problem but a new shoe that looks like an elephants ball sack after a couple of hours wear? Not so good. This is surely the very place to raise such issues
post #6043 of 10973

And they shouldn't ever crease on the side.  Or have mis-aligned toecaps or different coloured uppers for either foot!

I am 26cm long and 10.5 wide and found a 7.5uk in hiro dub monk to be too tight. Preference is part of the fit as some like a looser shoe than others. I tried to reorder an 8 but told it would be approx 40 days so went with some markowski dub monks instead. Wait and see how they compare in terms of quality and fit.

I would suggest getting a shoe in another last.  Getting a longer version of the same shoe in order to make it wide enough, might well lead to some of the problems above.
