Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 569

post #8521 of 11559

AJV has some sweet shooz there. The PTB looks very nice - a lot nicer than I would have thought.

 

Has anyone done comparison between the different loafer lasts? There seems to be 3 different lasts that Meermin uses for loafers. Would be interested in knowing how they actually differ.

Hi!

 

I'm contemplating buying the dark brown calf Oxfords from the Classic collection. Does anyone have "real-life" pics of them, preferrably in combination with a whole outfit (pants hem + shoe at least)? Judging the pics on the website, the brown does not seem to be too dark actually. I wonder if that's just the combination of pic + my monitor settings or if they are really rather medium brown.

 

Thanks in advance & happy New Year!

The pennys look nice.

If I may chime in, I bought a 7.5 UK in the brown suede tassel loafer on the Ron last and found it way too roomy. I have several other pairs in 7.5 UK in the Hiro last and they fit me perfectly straight away and get better with each wear. I'm a little annoyed because I asked Pepe before ordering the loafers if I should take the same size in the Ron last and he said yes. My experience tells differently. I tried to make the loafer work by having a good local cobbler remove the Meermin insole and replace it with an insert, but they just don't work. In fact, if anyone is interested in them, give me a holler. Aside from the insoles having been removed, they are pristine.

Thanks Konda, when I say perfectly it is with an insole with a reasonable sized arch built in. Unfortunately I'm yet to find a last that fits well without it.

Thanks for the update. I'll give the Meermin the benefit of the doubt as I'm sure they are swamped with orders and trunk shows. Once they can catch up and can at least offer perceived better service then I will look at ordering a pair of shoes from them. Some folks have received shoes from them within a week while others have had to wait a month. For me, I'd rather not take my chances so I'll take my biz elsewhere for now. Let me know you when you have further updates sir.

Smart choice

 

I made my order in early Nov, received a pair of shoes in mid Dec but it was not the one I ordered.  They got back very quickly and told me that they will ship the correct pair but I have not heard back from them since then......

Negative reviews are always louder than positive reviews tongue.gif

I've had a great experience with Meermin by email and phone. They answered all my questions and I put in my first order in early December and just got my shipment details yesterday. Luisa has been great to communicate with. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Is there anyone to date with experience in having an existing last made smaller? For example making a Rui in E-, i.e. in the width of a New Rey.

I emailed Meermin about this but didn't get a great response. Do you buy their belts at your pant waist size or one size higher?

Does anyone have sizing advice going from AE 5 last to New Rey?  I wear a 10D in AE 5 last, which fits snugly in length and width but is a bit tight in the instep.

I sent Meermin an email asking if a shoe is in stock in my size and ready to ship because I've come across in the past that they don't always have an accurate inventory.... now it's the next day, no response (but did receive a response to another question send after), but now the shoes have been removed from their website lol8[1].gif

I think their email responses are hit or miss depending on how busy they are, but regarding the belt, I ordered a size 34 for a true 33.5-34 waist and it just fit the last rung, so I'd go up one size from what your pants actually measure across the waistband.
