My interest was tentative as though I am intrigued by the choice of leather, and like the style of shoe, I am unsure as to this new last. Looks awfully narrow.

A plum or gbrown on the olfe would be more to my liking.

Hi, what size US are you? so what do you recommend the true size of the meermins are?

 

Do you suggest that we size .5 up or down?

 

thank you very much!

Here are some photos of an austerity by SkoAB. Made in Carmina Simpson. This gives some idea what it will look like. I think this is fine but definitely more dressier than when in the Olfe.

 

 

I think for maximal versatility I would go with suede. The museum calf is awesome but I think buying them would be more of a decision to buy porn looking shoes as opposed to buying suede would be buying shoes I can wear with pretty much everyting except my black tie suit.

Struggling to understand the "porn" reference.  I can't say the term ever enters my head when I strap on my Vass museum gold.

Heh yeah was the only word I could come up with trying to picture A-class "shoe porn" looking shoes. I think one should have these in both museum calf and suede if wife, money and shoe rack permit.

Why do you think new rey is a no go for an austerity?

post #8978 of 11081

Just can't picture it in as an austerity. I have two pairs and when I look at them, I can't visualize them looking good as austerity brogues. Someone should Photoshop a New Rey lasted shoe into an austerity brogue.

Does meermin not do wide widths anymore? Thought they told me they could do one for an upcharge.

What size US do you usually wear? and is 8.5 smaller or bigger than your usual size? thanks!

FYR - Gold Museum, calf MTO, minimum 25 orders are required to pull that off.

I finally got my pair of Meermins. First, I feel more sad than happy, only because of the duty I had to pay. I got a basic but very important captoe oxford from LM line in Olfe. I was too skeptical about the Hiro last and the only thing from RTW suiting my requirement was this. I must say I am somewhat unsure about the quality of the make. I have some kind of a CRACK near the heel of the left shoe. I dont know if I should be expecting something like this. And the sole feels like a boat, as in its bulging towards the ground. I am not even sure how to explain it. I am just satisfying myself thinking it'll flatten out after a few wears. Also the fit feels snug, a little too much in my opinion but that might be because of the size. Also there feels to be a gap too much towards the toe. Looks like the welt stitch is causing that. I am hoping this pair makes me happy with the way it fits after a few wears more than what I feel right now. Till then, I am not looking to buy another pair of Meermins till I happen to be in Spain.

Best thing to do would be to sell/return the shoes if you're not happy about them. Carmina captoes aren't that much more expensive than Meermin LM, and they should be a little better.
