Can't really see how the heel slipping would stop after a break in period. I mean if the shoe is top tight then of course the leather will adapt, but that was not the problem in this case. Maybe I'm wrong...

I wore my Church's Sahara out of the store in London went I first bought them. Had them on for a few hours walking around in London. They were killing me and I got huge blisters on both my heels, after a few wears the slippage is almost gone and they are super comfortable.

I mean I never even had a worse fitting of any kind of shoe, any price range, and my experience is that the comfort goes up when you buy any kind of higher quality shoe. But maybe meermin just does not fit in to that equation? And it is pretty wierd that their "comfortable last" rui is this uncomfortable. But maybe that is just me.

You are correct that I too have heels capable of blistering. That is exactly why I don't go for long walks in brand new dress shoes.

So not complaining or screaming "defect", but rather pointing out...Have worn my austerity MTO boots for 3 or 4 times. For the past week the shoes have sat in the dressing room in Bexley's shoe trees. This seems to be the first part where signs of wear appear. Still consider the shoes awesome and really have no complaints.

Your foot flexes when you walk, and it takes time for the stiff leather sole to loosen up and do the same. It's not just the upper that breaks in.

I have exactly the same. I guess we should chalk it up to character.

Spring loaded shoe trees x heel stiffener.

Does anyone have a fit pic of the tassel loafer? I'm trying to figure out how long the vamp is. Thanks!

I'd say plastic heel stiffener x high shaft.

Loake 1880, Meermin etc and below=everyone use plastic heel- and toe stiffeners. In the mid price range with brands like C&J, Carmina, Church's and so on it's also very common, just in some cases that they use leather heel stiffener, still plastic for the toe though. Actually, even the finest RTW brands like Edward Green use plastic toe stiffeners as well, but leather for the heel (since the possibility to adjust shape better to the foot is more important there, one tend to take the extra cost of using leather at least there). But for example John Lobb Paris use plastic both for heel- and toe stiffener.
