Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 553

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 find Bexley trees fit OK

So does that mean meermin is going to fix its QC issues if they're trying to spread to USA so aggressively? Can't show great stuff at trunk shows and have subpar stuff when the MTO orders come in

Why can't they? What's different from showing great stuff online then sending subpar stuff?

Well then it's like a bait and switch.

Don't get me wrong; they are capable of great things, its just a shame they're so hit and miss

My sentiment exactly. I very much want to order from them, but it just seems to risky.

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 #8291 of 11022
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.

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
