Bexley trees go. They are simply the best standard trees for all shoes.

Just to clarify the Punched Cap Oxford in burgundy is actually second from the right, not the far right one.

The far right one is a sample that they made and is not in the production line.

Are they selling actual shoes in NY right now? Would be great if I could snag a pair of lighter color tassels without paying $40 for shipping.
post #8285 of 11564
yes they are selling. if you go could you post a contact number for the less fortunate unable to attend?!

Tell them to put those burgundy captoes on the website.

Tell then to put more colors on the website. Right now it's basically brown, black, and a few cognac.

So, after about what seems like 2 months total of receiving my first pair, returning to Meermin, and just today picking up the new pair, I can say I am pretty happy seeing how the latter fits my feet. I am a Hiro size UK 8. redface.gif

I do not see anything wrong with the pair i.e. cosmetic flaws. My big toe and pinky toe are not pinching. Fits snug but not tight, so, I imagine they will stretch out just enough upon multiple wears.

Question, what shoe trees did you guys find best? I inserted some old cedar shoe trees I picked up from random shops and it did not fit the last that well. Appreciate any suggestions.

Will give these about 2 weeks wear (rotating in between) before deciding whether I want to go MTO, or another classic pair. The Hiro shape I find quite nice. The next narrower last, Olfe, I may need to size up 2 from my usual UK 7.5,

I purchased the Meermin ones. I have to say that they fill out the shoe very well!

They must've changed them then! I have them and they don't even fill my New Reys

thanks for the suggestions

after a day of wear my right foot is getting some pinching around the side of my pinky toe. bearable, i hope it stretches enough. feels fine when im talking or standing up.

I had a chance to meet Pepe and Luisa (I believe). Pepe is a truly genuine, nice man

It was great to try on different lasts and see some of the great shoes in person. Picked up something for me and the missus, I may grab another pair tomorrow, when I head to the trunk show.

I grabbed these
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

Wife got these, in a dark brown, with leather sole
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

And may grab these, they are great looking, in person.

How did your wife size? True to size with her normal shoes?
post #8293 of 11564
No, she wears a 6UK in their Lan last. She wears 9-9.5 in Louboutin, 39 in Valentino and Prada, 8 in Toms, 5.5 women's Converse.
