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.

 

pics?

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.

I've been doing my research on Meermin in this thread for a while. So back in late June I decided to pull trigger on these Black captoes MTO on the Ben last. I haven't gotten the chance to wear them out yet but so far I'm very impressed, no defects that I can see. The fit is a little snug on my right big toe but it's no big deal, I figure that they will fit perfectly once they're broken in. Let me know if you guys have any questions.

Does anyone have any experience with Meermin Chelsea boots? how's suede's quality for their boots/shoes?
post #8337 of 11845
The Ben looks nice. Anyone know how it fits in relation to the Hiro or Olfe?
post #8338 of 11845

Those black captoes look great on the ben last - they should produce a few more styles on that last. Nicely chiseled, but not too extreme.

 

My tan country calf double monks just arrived today. Looking forward to see how they hold up over the next six months against the similarly priced Markowski's and Septieme Largeur.

Hey everyone,

 

I'm interested in purchasing my first pair of Meermin and I've settled on the black double monks on the Hiro last from the Classic Collection.

 

My questions are,

 

  • How does the Hiro last compare to the AE 5 last? Provided I wear a US 12D on the 5 last.
  • I saw in this thread that shipping to the US is ~$40? So excluding VAT and including shipping it would be ~$215, does that sound about right? What's the consensus on duty charges? Is it mostly random luck on whether or not you get charged? How much extra would thank be?

 

Thank you for your help.

Left shoe feels great, right shoe has pinching by end of the day close to 8 hours of wear. Funny thing is if I stretch my toes, or walk around a little, it goes away on and off. Anyone experience this and have it go away after tons of wear? Considering getting it stretched a little by the cobbler. It pinches right above my pinky toe bone, right foot.
