-thicker than horween

I've mostly avoided meermin due to many people indicating their lasts are narrow. Carmina lists Rain as EE width. Width that I need. Would it be more apt to characterize it closer to Simpson last? If the width is the same, I'd majorly reconsider taking the plunge.

I think most demand is for drak brown (instagram pic).

Ian, didn't you try to get a balmoral group going before (unless it was different Ian)? Anyone from that group wants to jump on this?

Do we do Olfe? I know and like that last, and would think a cap toe would be difficult to screw up. Laufer, are you in if we do Olfe?

So we are talking:
Balmoral boot with speed hooks
Dark brown shell
Double leather sole (embedded toe caps up to each member)
Purple lining (?)

Btw, has anyone tried having a spectator done by Meermin?

We could go for this, but with dark brown and white buckskin (probably difficult to source) or white suede.

And while I'm at it - what's the latest on the chiselled last, TS?

Yeah, also any update on the plum museum calf MTO?

^^ I'm down with those specs - I prefer the purple lining too.

Probably a different ian? I don't recall doing anything of the sort...but then again I don't come here often, maybe I have in the past...

I'm not familiar at all with the Meermin lasts... all I know is I fit in Carmina's Rain last and G&G's MH71 both in 5.5UK.

The Rain last is abit snug on the toe box (pinky toe is hurting) but I've only worn it a few times in the past 2 weeks... seems like it'll loosen and stretch to be more comfortable.

Sounds good HP.  Think the purple will go well with the dark brown too.  Would prefer to keep it simple and stick to the Hiro but im still in for the Olfe.  Either way lets get this happening, sooner we can order sooner we can wait 3+ months :p

Yes I am Hiro or Olfe but please no purple lining. How about green lining it looks so much better than purple lining.

Different Ian then - checked PMs and it was Ian L, will check if he has any members lined up.

Laufer, happy to go with green, don't care much either way regarding lining.

So we're 4 down - any more takers?

Ugh shoe does not fit. I need a 8 in Hiro at least. If anyone wants to take 7.5 Hiro in dark brown cap toe off my hands let me know. Located in CA will sell at cost, free S&H.

If I'm a size 7us on the 5-65 allen edmonds last what size should I take on the hiro? Thanks.

I would say 6. But you can always email them to be sure

post #8083 of 12107
^I am not sure about that now. I emailed and was told a size UK7.5 after all the information I gave them. Ended up not fitting. I can get my foot in the shoe but the vamp was really tight. I do not have a high in-step as well (about zero arch). I am hesitant to try the next size up but will go with their suggestion and my intuitions.

You guys think another half size up will make that much of a difference, or should I go full size up? This would mean my US8.5 = UK8.5 in Meermin Hiro last ..


$50 to ship shoe back for an exchange. Not sure if that is relatively cheap to ship back, but USPS covers insurance and tracking via priority mail. UPS wanted $190 foo.gif

Just thought I'd share for those who are curious about returns. I'm also using a corporate account though if that makes a difference.

Wear this today....dark brown cap toe in the classic line...no complaint on its quality given its reasonable price😊
post #8085 of 12107

I would say you should switch last in this case.
