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 #8299 of 10973
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.

anyone heading to the trunk show willing to proxy a pair of shoes?
post #8301 of 10973

for those experienced with Meermin . . . . what last is equivalent to Carmina simpson ?

post #8302 of 10973
Stopped by and picked up my dark brown suede chukkas and they are great. Naturally I spilled cooking oil on them 2 hours of wearing them. Oh well, I guess it's "patina."

Also, seeing all these shoes in person made me realize how insanely high the standards of people on SF seem to be. Obvious MTO gaffes aside, these are all genuinely nice shoes at a great value. Now that I know my sizing a bit better (tried on a bunch of lasts) I am definitely going to order more Meermin.

Yeah, I don't think anyone has ever said meermin are bad shoes, just that their QC process sucks. Everyone who got the shoes they wanted/ordered (not messed up) was very satisfied.

The New Rey and only the New Rey. Vil is smaller and Olfe is larger. Olfe not a lot larger but enough if one has narrow feet. Wearing New Rey UK 13.0 and 13.5 and Carmina Simpson UK 12 (snug) and 12.5 i.e. downsizing approx 1 size for the Simpson. Wearing the Olfe in UK 13 and it is a little too wide.

 

Incredibly there seems to be lots of people who fit Benz rims on BMWs i.e. wear a New Rey, a Hiro, a Simpson and a Rain. Incredible and can't be well fitting.

Hiro is a little wide IMO. I wear the same size in both, but with less initial toe pinch on the Hiro.

Does anyone have the olfe last that wears a US 9.5D (maybe share your foot dimensions?)?  Id be curious if the 8.5UK size is what I should order.  I just tried on a 9.5D US Cole Haan shoe today and it seemed to fit me perfectly, so I'm hoping I would be correct in ordering a 8.5UK.

 

I'd appreciate any advise.
