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.

Stress testing.

I had a quality problem with some LM black adelaide I ordered back in April. The stitching on the captoe wasn't straight on either shoe, and there were bumps (look like bug bites) on one of the uppers. I returned the shoes, but Meermin said they didn't think anything was wrong with the quality.

looks like the lacing is open too much, forming a "V". Are they comfortable to wear like this?

The lacings do close down after breaking in as all new shoes do.

No, not exactly comfortable after walking several miles at Vegas, but the pain point is not at the vamp but at the pinky toe area. The discomfort is not from the insufficient instep girth but from toe box width.

I had the same pain point on my New Reys. Went away after a couple of wears and the laces closed right down. With hindsight this should have led me to size down in Olfe frown.gif

Not sure if there has already been a lot of pics from the Trunk show Meermin held in Stockholm, however here are few I took myself in case anyone is interested...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




















































Couple of more pics and few words of the trunk through the sig.

I don't actually consider the creases on top bad, I just don't usually get a double crease like this. And the creases on the side aren't normal for me. I'm still happy with the shoes.





Once I read an interview with Chay Cooper of Alfred Sargent. In this interview Chay was asked to describe the difference between AS Handgrades and AS Exclusive. According the Chay the major difference is in the leather used. For AS Handgrades only one pair of shoes can be made from the single piece of skin while for AS Exclusive 2-3 pairs of shoes can be made from the single piece of skins.
Maybe that's why we see this creasing. Maybe we were expecting too much from Meermin especially since we wanted a new pattern. maybe it would have been better if we stuck with existing Meermin patterns. I do not know I am just trowing something new on the plate I guess. There are people more knowledgeable about this. I think Meermin shoes are good value, Unfortunately I did not get my sizing right so Hiro last was just a little bit narrow for me I may join chukka MTO if that's given a green light. I suppose if I order a half a size longer I can wear it with thicker socks.

What does the 'squeezing two to three' shoes out of each hide has to do with the 'creases' on the shoes?

post #6060 of 11032

I got the creases as well, not so much on the left as I got on the right one. I'm not too bothered with it, I did however got me a bit wary to continue order shoes from Meermin. They crease ALOT more then my others in the sam price-range: Loake and Cheaney.

 

I am still on the fence with Meermin from this experience. Too bad. I wonder what they did wrong to get this extra creasing on many of the MTO's.

 

Still a beutiful shoe.. but maybe it is time for me to move on.. I will watch this thread closely to see how other shoes, not neccesiraly MTO,come out. Is it a trend or just something with this particular MTO.
