Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 600

post #8986 of 11961

Maybe someone can help. I've read that Carmina Simpson is similar to New Rey, which is quite narrow. I own Meermin Olfe lace-up in 7UK and it is a perfect fit. 7UK in Hiro is not the best fit; it's a bit too wide for me and I get heel slip.

 

So with that said, should I get Carmina Simpson 7UK or 7.5UK? I'm looking to get a Chelsea boot from Skoak.

I wouldn't say Simpson is narrow. It has a lower instep though.

But the quality control issues are a different animal altogether.

As I said, after I wore it a couple of hours they actually felt good. Not that a few hours are enough to know that but I can feel them going in that direction.

The one thing I hadn't mentioned was that the tongue of the shoe was seen quite a bit after the laces were fastened.  Thats probably because of the size.

 

Agreed, QC is altogether a different animal but as one would expect, the two lines being sold currently, the one with a higher pricing should have more stringent QC regulations, NO?

Its weird not finding a fault on the classic Line and then a few issues with LM. But as they say "Its all about the Luck". Hope they improve the QC sooner than they are planning to.

Its definitely not a big difference. But I was quite unsure of the last. And the problem I faced with my Carminas (heel and toe off balance).

Perhaps someone can help me here. I want to get these bad boys, http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2712 but I have a problem with the size. I'm a 7.5 in Allen Edmonds, but sometimes I feel the shoe slips a bit, heel area. And On Ferragamos I'm a 7.5 also (US sizing if anyone is wondering) what size should I go for?

 

Thinking in wearing this with blue and black jeans, and grey and navy pants.

My heel slips a bit in my AE size, but fits perfectly in my Meermins. I sized one full size down from AE.

So 6.5 (UK). Thanks for that, how has it been the shoe for you both in terms of quality and comfort?

Can you please try to clarify where the crack is? If it is in the sole, it might just be a normal join that should feature on both shoes. Any chance of a better photo?

Durability is only ok. They don't take the beatings my AEs do (I posted this a little back). Comfort wise they are far more comfortable. The leather is really nice and conforms to my foot well.

 

If I were you I'd buy some 2nd off ebay first, then buy a full retail pair. Doesn't hurt to have a beater sitting around.

I was thinking in perhaps getting a LM one and a cheap one and use the LM one when I have to do serious business, I will have it ship to the US though so the Customs taxes doesn't kill me, the problems of living in a communist country. My Allen Edmonds I love them, I have gone out on them when its pouring, I put shoe trees once I get back home, and bastards dont even have crease yet, they are very uncomfortable though. I have the Neumoks on brown.

How much more narrow is new rey vs hiro? I have a pair of dubs on hiro in an 8.5uk that are slightly too tight and slightly short. Would new rey work if I went up to say a 10uk? I'm interested in a pair of wholecuts. Thanks.

Going up in size to accomodate for width doesn't make any sense. If last doesn't work for you the last doesn't work. Wearing a shoe 1.5 sizes long is not the solution
