Are you serious? You bought a pair of shoes online and are angry as hell when they don't fit you, cause the size is "smaller than advertised"? Well, size UK7 comes in a million different actual sizes, depending on brand and last. This is like the first thing you learn when buying footwear. 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.

^^  Fair point.  I wonder what width fitting you take in Church's, as they are a little narrower than Loake's shoes in my experience.  But what is well documented here is how narrow most of Meermin's lasts are.  It's hardly a crime - you could say the same of John Lobb or Gaziano & Girling.  It takes some trying to see what fits and some just won't be right. Personally, I know I can probably never buy Corthay - it's either too narrow, or going to have a long toe that doesn't look right.  

 

Send them back, size up, and put it down to experience.  Then you only have to worry about the terrible quality control. :)

Are the shoes eligible for returning? Now that the owner has broke them in.

Ah well if he can't return them the guy can join the many of us who have got sizing wrong and have either buried the mistake in our wardrobes or sold them for a fraction of the cost but either way and inexorably chalking it up to experience.

I wonder if Meermin can re-last a half size smaller. My Museum MTO needs to be sized down by a 1/2 size.

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

Bought the black toe cap from the classic range, pictured after about 5 wears. Construction is pretty good, apart from the sole seems to be peeling at the front of the left shoe. I suppose this is a sacrifice for a cheaper shoe though. 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S I don't know how to spoiler! Someone tell me?

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.
