Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 556

Also, I thought that this might be helpful - Olfe on the left, Hiro on the right. Both size 8 UK. I can't promise that my feet are perfectly lined up, but it should give you an idea of their shape. I think I might prefer the Hiro, but both are very attractive.

Classic line oxfords - burgundy, cognac, black



Very nice. I was looking for the Classic Captoe in Burgundy. Don't see it on the website, but I guess, I can request it over email.

I think they're coming soon, but I agree that you could probably track them down via email.

Hi guys, do you have to pay for any import duty when order a Meermin and have it shipped from Spain to the US?

Got the Meermin split toe cordovans today. Fit very well (10E in Park Avenue, 9UK for the Meermin). The finishing/polishing (whatever you call it, I'm not a shoe guy) is alright, a little uneven. The construction seems solid. The only really minor issue I have is that the stitching at the split is a bit off center on one of them (maybe 10 degrees). Still, I'm pleased (would have been more pleased if I didn't have to pay an extra hundred in customs duties).

 

They are darker than they appear in the picture, as well as possessing richer color depth. I'm pleased on both counts.

wish someone had a picture of the swatches (each color, so we could see what all the options were, I can't tell from the side pic)

They both are beautiful. In your opinion, how much narrower is the olfie in the forefoot and heel. Also, how does the instep compare?

 

I had the opportunity to try on the Hiro, but not the Olfie.... and have my eyes set on a pair of Linea Maestro in the Olfie!

Interested in the instep questions too. Which last is better for low insteps?

So Olfie is better for a low instep?

No. Olfe is for a regular instep. New Rey is for a low instep.

Olfe is workable but there is quite some extra on the vamp of my Olfes. A compromise buy for someone with a low instep. Consider twice.
