You're not getting shell though. And I prefer the look of the meermin boot. Any appetite for a group MTO of a burgundy cordovan shell boot? Would suggest olfe last unless ts new chisel last becomes available anytime soon.

Guys, I know there have been plenty of complaints about the MTO boots, but please bear with me. Something strange is happening with the soles after only a couple of wears, and I was wondering whether this is normal? Should I just cut that part off? Thanks!

^This could happen with channeled outsole, it's the lip glued down to cover the stitching, reglue it or cut it, isn't a big problem.

Thanks guys, I was a little worried there for a second! I guess I'll just cut it off.

Anyone gotten a response from meermin lately? I've tried pepe, and the general mailbox, and it's been a week or so

Repost for advice:

 

Hi Guys,
 
I need some sizing help. I am new to the Meermin brand and have not had the time to go thorugh all the pages of the thread, as such, I would appreciate your help.

I wear the following in Allen Edmonds: 8.5E in the 5-last, 9D in the 1-last, 9E in the Daltons, 9E in the 2-last (New Orleans and RL Saunders) and 8.5E in the 3-last (Neumora). And I'm a size 42 in Edetal's standard last if anyone's familiar with that.
What should I get in the 101341 - DARK BROWN CALF (Hiro Last) and the 12154 - SNUFF JANUSCALF SUEDE (Olfie last) as a MTO in Naturacalf Burgundy.
 

Is Linea Maestro generally worth the upcharge from Classica? I'm already quite satisfied with Allen Edmonds' leather, so if the Classica is similar to that then good for me.

Thanks!

The troubling thing is that they respond rather rapidly on Facebook to ask you to email them but then there's a significant delay in getting an email response.

It takes a second to reply via Facebook / Instagram but most emails probably have a bunch of random questions that take time to answer and pile up

On another note, Cognac is a good color for the light brown Austerity MTO.

I asked them that very thing as the welt was coming off anyway. They said it would upset the balance of the shoe. (Toecap would look disproportionately small)
Cognac is exactly what I had in mind! Thanks for doing the guinea pig work!

And for example Loake are known to run larger than many other brands, so to have them as a standard is totally wrong, if anything you should be mad at Loake. Which would be equally stupid.
I see you've learned a couple of things in your life, my little vulgarian. Sorry to inform you that you appear to have managed to do it wrong in each case. My width is medium, which is an F, I think, in Church's. The meermin last is narrower, and these particular shoes are size 7 US, not 7 UK. But I am not going to waste my time arguing with you or anyone else here. It'd be equally stupid, albeit slightly more productive, to teach my cat to speak French. And I will never waste my time trying to ascertaining that in their case, size 7UK is actually size 7US, or 3 1/2 Mongolian, or whatever. I just don't have that much of spare time on my hand. And I don't care about the money that I lost. It's peanuts. So I won't even bother to try to return them. Will donate this award artisanal misconception to the local housing works thrift shop around the corner.

You don't have time, but you write a paragraph saying how you don't have time?

You say the money is peanuts and doesn't matter, but you've posted several times complaining about it.

Also, his ethnicity has nothing to do with it. Don't be rude.
