1) similar to the New Rey last but has a different toe box;

4) a modified heel cup; and 
5) more volume on the area below to enhance the fitting of the sleek last

This last will be lasted soon and I will provide more pictures. I personally like it and am imagining it as a as sleek chukka in hatchgrain ala G&G icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif




Any new news about this?

From the Meermin tumblr - new cognac calf for the classic collection. Looks awesome.

 

Do you like the eyelet distance? It looks too wide for me.

Aside this, the shoes are really nice — and their other last additions as well.

Paid up for austerity MTO! Looking forward to getting them! Any chance you can politely remind them to use the proper customs code so we don't get hammered with fees like others in the past?

This is what turns me off almost all the Meermin lace up models. The width between the eyelets looks silly to me and makes an otherwise beautifully elegant shoe look a bit odd..

I recently returned a pair of shoes which I instructed Meermin to consolidate together with my newly purchased shoe. I even followed Luisa's instructions to put a reminder regarding the return pair in my new order's comments section.

Turns out they shipped my new shoes WITHOUT the exchange pair. Luisa realised that she did not read my comments in the order form and sent it seperately few days after. Sadly it's been 3 weeks now and I've yet to see any signs of my exchange pair.

Has anybody experienced slow shipping for exchange/replacement pairs? New orders usually arrive to me within 4 days! baldy[1].gif

I've been sending them emails every other day regarding the update of the exchange pair and it looks like I have been ignored.

Yep very much agree with what cbfn said.  The Hiro is slightly more narrow than the capital last.  So if the capital last fits you spot on I would consider going up half a size, if you have a bit of room in the capital last then maybe get the same size in the Hiro, it does wear in well.

 

Thanks for cbfn and Osiris2012 commnet.

 

Is Olfe more narrow than Hiro last?

Meermin no longer responding to emails, poor form.

If the Euro continues to rise I forecast a big fall in sales.

Can anybody vouch for the long term quality of this boot 101487 - TAN COUNTRY CALF http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=4080 ?

 

Can it take the beating of slush, long city walks in rain and occasional country outings with mud and pebbles as surface?

 

Secondly

 

Regarding sizing I am normally a UK 10 G or a US 11 E or  EU 45 (or more precisely 44 2/3) - however Meermin size conversion is a bit different. Which size do you reckon I should pick for the Rui last?

 

Bump

 

Does no one have experience with the quality of this boot or sizing for the Rui last?

I doubt anyone could vouch for long term quality as the longest anyone will have had them is about 2 months. I cancelled my order unfortunately frown.gif

My only guess is that your return package that you sent back to Meermin for an exchange is still being held at customs.

 

Like you I sent back the shoes I ordered for an exchange. I'm not sure all the carries use the same customs office, but I used USPS to ship the shoes back instead of Fedex, since Fedex is almost $150+ to ship to Spain for some reason while USPS cost me $54. After it arrived in Spain it's retained at the Customs office. Been there since Sep 4 for me and is still there. I read online of some horrible stories people of shipping things to Spain, where it gets held at the customs for weeks to months even if the proper paperwork is done before they release it.

 

Luckily Sandro was nice enough to ship out new pairs for me since I need them in a few weeks before they received it back.

 

Another note, I was billed for about $30 of custom duty from Fedex for the two pairs of shoes 2 weeks after I received them, so I fear I will probably be bill for another $30 when I received the exchanges. Sadly the costs really creeps up if you don't get the right sizes. Chances of paying 2 times the custom duties and shipping back will be around $100 - $120 on top of your order cost.
