Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 591

post #8851 of 11546

I read back the last few pages to see if I missed anything important. The only thing that jumped out at me was people warning that New Rey isn't suitable for a C width, and I think I've read that in the past. New Rey was fine for me, however. YMMV.

I sent Pepe an email re: a new museum calf MTO and he replied that they will be offering a museum calf oxford as part of their regular collection, beginning as early as next week.

 

Does anyone know if this will be classic or LM?  What color?  I would reply back, but I imagine a follow-up email to Pepe is like asking the soup nazi for bread.

Is there any interest out there for a group MTO on an Austerity brogue in navy museum calf on the new chisel last with a single leather sole?

Yes!

Terror, I'm also still interested in that hatchgrain wholecut on the new chiseled last if that ever gets off the ground.

I'd bet they would be LM and brown museum calf

I agree, it makes the most sense. People really wanted it, based on Instagram and Tumblr.

Still no Gray Museum, according to my email from Pepe this morning.

Better than leather, but not by much. I've nearly died a couple times when it's icy with Dainite. Commando sole works really well.

 

I had a pair of Carminas with a vibram sole cover added at the front and a commando heel at the back. Not really noticeable to anyone unless they are really looking closely and works great.

 

Otherwise there is the "NYC option" where knowing your shoes will get ruined in an upcoming situation, like a subway ride or salted ground, you wear something like slip on Merrels and switch out once at your office.

Quick shot of the size 13 New Rey shoes on my feet. I think my feet are a C width up front, low instep, and narrow heels. I might need to use a tongue pad on the right shoe, there's a little gapping.

Ketawa, have you tried the next size down?
post #8859 of 11546

Yes, next size down is a little too small for my left foot.

Does anyone have the measurement stats for the size 9.5UK/10.5US Ron last? These loafers did not fit me correctly...wondering if sizing up a half size would work, or if I should just abandon the Ron last.

Good, I don't care about Museum offerings BUT hopefully this means things like the suede boot and burgundy classic line oxford from the trunkshow are finally going to make their way to the website.  I need those suede boots!!

The way the laces close in the picture kinda proves the shoe is too BIG small  for you(Or exactly the right fit, most folks have some separation or an V shape).

 

I wonder if you can MTO different sizes of shoes.

leetpuma, do you mean too big?

You are correct, sorry I got things all backwards

post #8865 of 11546
Interestingly, the laces also close all the way for both my feet in size 12.5. I must have a very low instep.

I think it might just be something I have to live with when I'm wearing oxfords. I find it hard to believe I'll find something substantially better fitting in my size.
