Just ordered a pair of snuff suede captoes, matching belt and extra dark brown leather belt. Hoping the Hiro works out a little better than the Olfe.

Have you tried both the Hiro and Olfe? I thought they were very similar sizing wise.

 

** Or did you mean that you just hope the Hiro is more accommodating to your foot?

Nope, just the Olfe. The Hiro is a rounder last and I believe slightly wider. I did mean that I hope the Hiro last is a better shape for my feet. Either way, I decided to experiment and size up a half size. I think it should work out well.

I'm surprised that there aren't more posts/photos of the recent museum calf MTOs (plum + dark brown).

 

I suppose this means that there aren't any major dramas this time around... 

 

How are the people finding their new shoes?

Setup is as shown previous on the poster:

Dark brown (Argentinian) shell brown balmoral boots
Olfe last (let me confirm with Pepe if we can include option for Hiro)
Speed hooks
Double leather sole (again, can check if variations are available)

Should look like this (from their Instagram):

Early interest (pls confirm you are still in):
p.henrik (yes)
Osiris (I assume yes)
Laufer

Yeah mate I'm still in... where was all this interest in the boot last year before the aussie dollar dropped against the euro!!!

Hey guys I was curious to the quality of the suff rapello suede on the classic line. I head this this is split grain suede and not reverse calf suede. 

 

(Split grain is when hide is cut into thin slices and each is used for suede).

(While reverse calf is where the hide is not cut and the suede you see is just the inside part of the animal.)

 

I was curious to know how your suede has been holding up. And if anyone know how much nicer the LM/Linea Mastero suede is? (It is listed as reverse calf)

Hi Guys, I just recieved a pair of Linea Maestro Black Freudenberg Calf delivered today. The uppers of the shoes were with great detail and fine quality. However, the bottom of the shoe sole I noticed that there is a crack line which seems as if they have not line it together properly. Is this normal or should I send them back to be replaced.

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Mine have not arrived yet, but my brother got his the Friday after christmas. They look stunning and appear to have no major flaws.
I could post pics if you like.

Ordered two pairs, one for me and one for my brother about a month ago. 
Took a few weeks for the shoes to be made, but once they were ready to ship, they only took four days to get from Spain to California. 

 

My pair is perfect, but the pair for my brother is a half size too big.

Returning is probably out of the question, since it will be at least $100 in shipping both ways. 

 

So... I have the cognac punched cap toe oxford (http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=4142) in 9UK. He wears a 9.5E in AE last 5 but has a wider foot, so Luisa suggested the size up from the 8.5.

 

Any suggestions on the fit or does anyone want to buy these or trade for the same shoe in 8.5UK or an AE McAllister, Strand, or Fifth Avenue in 9.5E?

I take a half size bigger in Olfe versus the Hiro. But I appear to be an exception.

It would be great if you could post some photos, particularly if they are the plum museum plain-toe Adelaide as I have yet to see these anywhere.

 

I'm still waiting on mine too, but I thought most others had received them by now.

I think that would not jeopardize the shoe. I would keep them.

That and heels are less than $50 to replace which is less than shipping them back. So you should probably keep them.

Will meermin take returns on MTO items if they do not fit you? (I know I would have to pay return shipping.)

post #8625 of 10191

JHC. Of course they don't. You don't order a car and then return it for a refund just because you ordered the wrong color.
