Are Meermin lasts consistent throughout? If I am a size 9.5D in AE park aves, what size should I go with for Meermin?

I would agree the light brown seem to have far fewer issues. Maybe its a dainite thing

That might be true, because my dark brown boots have double leather soles. Pretty happy about that decision.

Just opened mine up today! They look great!

 

I don't have any glaring issues -- I noticed the soles aren't quite lined up with the uppers, but it's not that severe. Nothing anyone other than me would notice. There's some sloppy stitching too, but along the lines of what I expected for the price. Haven't put them on yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

 

Anyone have a suggested lacing syle for an all-eyelet boot? Something that loosens and tightens relatively easily?

I don't have much fuss using "european" bar lacing; provided the laces are long enough, they loosen and tighten fairly easily.

agree.The trees are lasted and cost €35, they are more EG than St.C but decent for the price nonetheless.

For now I'm going with the modified straight bar lacing -- straight bar lacing with one crossover at the bottom. I like the different look. I am looking forward to when these are broken-in a bit as they aren't particular easy to get on! (Albeit my first experience with non-speedhook boots.)

 

Here are a copy photos from inside. I'll try and take some outside in natural light tomorrow. (If you see anything terrible wrong with them, be a doll and keep quiet! Ignorance is bliss :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a comparison photo to my other "nice" shoes:

 

From left to right:

Ralph Lauren Sanderson's in Tan (Made by AE on the 222 last, 10E US)

Meermin Austerity Wingtip Boot in Dark Brown (Olfe last, 9UK)

Carmina 80105 in Marron (Simpson last, 9UK)

 

A couple more photos hidden in the spoiler

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

A not-quite-above last comparison (Carmina Simpson, Meermin Olfe, AE 222)

 

 

The two Mallorcian shoes -- the Simpsion looks quite worn in the photo, but isn't actually so bad in real life (particularly on the side)

Sizing Question

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?

post #7737 of 12107

The boots after a couple of hours of wearing them yesterday, is this normal, i.e. happening to you guys as well? These little wrinkles are all over the boot, with bigger wrinkles near the toecap. None of my other shoes have this, even brogues I've owned for several years and am using as beaters now.

the 1st and third pics don't look very good.

Are you flexing the boot in the first pic?
post #7739 of 12107

Nope, why would I flex the boot for a pic? They're just standing on the floor. Bear in mind, I've worn the boots for 2-3 hours max, walking around the apartment a bit. They're not too big or too small, they fit just right.

I think this normal for the leather Meermin uses. We had this issue with Dark Brown Museum calf MTO, some shoes creased better than the others.
