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

You would think people would learn that by now...

 

Shoe too short/long? Change the length size! 

 

Shoe too narrow/wide? Change the width?

 

Still doesn't work? Try a different last

 

It's almost like it's logical.

Does anyone have any shoes in the following last? I want to see the toe box shape in person on someone's foot.

-Ama
-Ben

I hope this image can help.. The crack is definitely not on the sole..

Quick question: I've got insoles in one of my meermins, but they squeak like hell. I've had a cobbler glue them, but they still squeak just as much. Is there any way to fix this?

post #9012 of 11068

I thought I will just post a pic of my newest Meermins. Very happy again.

post #9013 of 11068
^^^ Very nice! That's exactly the colour I am after. What last are those on?

Thank you Roger! These are made on Hiro last. You can find them here: http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2749

 

The colour in the photo looks exactly like in the reality. Although may very depending on your screen settings. It is kind of shade that goes better with lighter colours (like light grey) rather than charcoal or dark grey imo.

^^^ Thanks for the info. I have ordered a pair of wholecuts on the Ama last (at least I think I have - placed it a few days ago and have heard nothing further and paid no $$) in that shade and also ordered a pair for my wife. Looking forward to my (our) first Meermins.
