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.

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.

 

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.

Seriously, some people... facepalm.gif

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 #6037 of 11642

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.

For reference, here are the measurements of the rui last in size UK7 and UK7.5 given to me by Luisa.

 

> RUI
> L 294mm shoe sole 7UK - L 298mm shoe sole 7,5UK.
> W 105mm shoe sole 7UK - W 106mm shoe sole 7,5UK.
> L 276mm last(insole)7UK - L 280mm last(insole)7,5UK.
> W 098mm last(insole)7UK - W 099mm last(insole)7,5UK.
> Foot 25,6 cm 7UK - Foot 26 cm 7,5UK.

 

My feet are 26cm x 9,6cm or thereabouts. I just placed an order on the country boot in UK7.5, which is what Luisa recommended. I did specify that I want to be able to wear somewhat thick wool socks in them, though. If it was for a regular shoe I probably would've gone with UK7, but my feet aren't that wide anyway. Just hope the sizing works out! smile.gif

Thanks very helpful. Looks like Rui in UK7 is for me. I'll send of my trace and confirm with Luisa.

I think Meermin might be sending out shoes that can be considered seconds to their customers. I just received my order today in the mail and both items have blemishes on the leather. The calf leather has some discoloration on both shoes and the suede nap on the chukka boots is damaged on both shoes and very rough looking similar to the suede double monks a few posts ago.

Thanks for sharing this.  I've just canceled my order for pair of LM suede derbies.  For me, it is just not worth waiting weeks or months for RTW shoes, given what I perceive as a relatively high probability that there will be quality issues that would warrant returning them.  I'd rather pay more and receive something that would pass a simple QC check.

I am receiving my first pair in a couple weeks. For the price, I thought it was worth a shot. Hope I don't face the same issues. I can live with lesser quality but not different colors.
