Let's bring this back around. I'm interested in getting these made.

The EG Olney in Blue or Clove Suede if Meermin can source it.

Any interest? Oh and Terrorsquad, forgot to ask if you can run it!!!

I'm sorry because this has probably been asked somewhere in the 250pgs of this thread, but do the suede tassels fit TTS? I wear a 10.5 in laceups and take 10d in loafers, and I'm considering ordering a pair of suede tassels in uk9. Thanks for any help.

With regard to creases, as previously stated, I don't have a problem with my shoes creasing, I have a problem with them creasing in places they shouldn't and to an excessive degree after one wear! As to them being budget, the museum MTO cost about the same as a pair of C&J, Cheaney or AS. Not everyone considers everything below G&G a budget shoe

I was not talking about your shoes, I was talking about some pics posted earlier from some people who was concerned about a small gap where the two ends of the welt meet, often placed on the inside above the heel.

In that case, my bad! Paranoia is a terrible curse! I agree with you about the welt finish gap, moaning about that is just daft

The heel is uneven with the upper sole, which makes the shoes uncomfortable to walk with.
When stand leaning on the upper sole, only the top portion of the heel touches the ground.
When I lean towards the back, the upper sole is a full half inch above the ground!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This has caused me several slips on pavements, as the soles does not completely grip the ground when I walk.

Contact Sandro. Meermin said they were going to take care of this issue for the people affected.

No worries, I wasn't describing it especially well in the first post.

And I have complained quite a bit about my shoes!
It makes me happy to see the 2 beautiful examples of museum MTO in their lasted tree'd glory then makes me sad to see my poor little ball sac leather ones. Maybe they'll look better after their rebuild

The last is pretty narrow, especially in the toe box. I usually wear a 10UK, so I ordered the loafers in 10 as well. At first they were a little too small for me, but after a week of wearing them they stretched and they fit perfectly now. Bear in mind that they might turn out to be too small for you, so sizing up half a size might not be a bad idea. I'd send meermin your measurements and ask them what they think.

Newly received Meermin 101482 in Tan country calf, Hiro-last made on double Dainite-sole, which I will use on rainy days during spring, summer and fall. A bunch of pics:

I also took some last comparison pics with the Hiro and some more or less similar lasts, since I know people often find it interesting. All in size UK10/EU44.

I haven't heard back from Meermin for 18 days in regards to a pending order (which includes a courtesy follow-up email)... probably not placing any more orders... confused.gif
