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.

Thanks for the line up shots. Am very interested in knowing how the Hiro compares to the Loake Capital. It seems the Capital is wider at the ball and toes, would that be right? Which fits more snug?

Also curious. I'm considering some Meermins MTO since none of their normal sizes will fit my fat feet, and would love to get lasted trees if they aren't obscene.

Edit: I see this was answered, I missed it. My fault!

Not even the Ama last? That last is huge (I have a pair of wholecuts) and I think it's listed as E+.

Very nice. Please let us know how they hold up, as I'm interested on that model (and the Dainite sole longwing) too. Need some nice shoes with rubber soles for rainy days, and also for walking long distances (the Hiro last is extremely comfortable for me).

I'd imagine one of their wider lasts would indeed work for me, but so far as I can tell, very little comes in those wider lasts. Basically, just the gunboats.

If their shoes came in wide sizes, I'd buy several of them right now.

Thanks guys!

Yowser: Yes, Capital is a big last, they run a bit large and is wide over the ball. Hiro is both shorter and more snug, I'd say Hiro runs pretty true to size.

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!!!



 

 

Sure, it looks interesting icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif lets discuss the details via email (meerminmto@yahoo.com). I think a navy/blue suede would fit nicely next to my navy French Oxford Vass.

I own the Ama wholecut in UK 10 and they fit surprisingly well, especially considering my rather high instep (as additional info here are my foot dimensions:

Length 281mm, Ball girth 270mm, Ball width 115mm, Heel width 82mm, Instep girth 275mm, Heel girth 373mm; based on measurements for sizeadvisors.com). I wonder if I would also be ok with the Hiro last in UK 10 or even with the Olfe last. But I fear that at least the Olfe last will be too narrow already. Could you help me with that and/or give me insights into the main differences between the lasts?

 

Thank you very much in advance!

 

So sorry man, just noticed this. Can I send you a PM later; would need to type a long reply smile.gif But for a short answer, I personally think you may need to size up for Hiro/Olfe.

I never heard back either. I lost count of the days/weeks. Seems as though there are positives and negatives to Meermin, but they matter less when I can't get a response. Ended up buying Shell Cordovan PTBs from Alden instead and couldn't be happier

Just got a test pair of the regular line in the Hiro last

They suggested I size down to a 9.5.  I wear a 10.5 D in shoes like AE

They seem to be a little snug in the toe box but I have never worn European shoes this shape.  They were not uncomfortable and I am inclined to think a perfect fit but I can walk around in these all day. Is this expected in a narrow chiseled (at least more than I am used to) shoe?  They seem long enough

I should be getting my hands on my own pair soon. I ordered DB monks in black calf a few weeks ago, and they said it would be around 30 days for them to make them. Well, Sandro e-mailed me on the weekend with an paypal invoice, and got a confirmation of payment on Monday. It should take about 7 days for them to send them out, and another week for the parcel to arrive. I must admit I'm a bit worried, when obviously many of you have had problems in this category. Let's hope for the best, and pics are sure to come if they arrive!
