Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 612

post #9166 of 10123

Hey guys,

 

Just received my Meermin Hiros in size UK8. Unfortuantely, they are too small. I can barely get my feet in them, and when walking, it really hurts – the edge of the back is cutting the heel, so to say. It doesn't hurt when I sit still.

 

I wear AE 5-65 in US9D, and Loake Capital in UK8F. 

 

Now I am a bit worried if sizing up half a size is enough. 

 

Is anybody able to give me some advice? Would really appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Freddy

Theres a lot of comparisons of Loake of Meermins in this thread and theres plenty of Australian members who could also provide a comparison in the Aussie thread so I would start with those.  For what its worth im an 8 in the Loake Aldwych and Churchill and whilst I can just squeeze into a Hiro size 8, 8.5 is optimal.

Same thing with the Hiro last for me. I think I went up to a 8.5 and wear a 7.5 in the loake kempton chukka. Feels pretty comfortable now. Had the size 8 in Hiro before and it was horrible in my feet

 

Hmm, I'm a 10 in the Loake Aldwych and want to get a cap toe with the Hiro last. One of you went up half a size, the other a whole size. Not sure if I should go for a 10.5 or 11. Any advice?

So the pain is just from the back of the heel?

Yeah. It's tight around the toes, but not painful. The heel is painful though. Not painful while sitting still though.

sounds like your shoes need breaking in, heel blisters are common with new shoes.

^ I have wide feet FWIW so I sized up 1 whole shoe size

Thanks!

Curious too, never knew there's a "Ram" last in the Meermin line.

FWIW: The Kempton mentioned by @gettoasty is made on Loake's 026 last, not Capital.

Additionally, either the 026 was once available in G, or Herring had the model made in G. If the shoe gettoasty talked about is indeed in G – which seems sensible given his wide feet – , going up one full size for the Hiro would make perfect sense, since people usually go down half a size from the Capital (F) to the 026 (G).

eh... what about a smaller size?

Looking to jump into a group MTO but need some sizing advice...

My current size:
G&G (all lasts): 5.5E
Carmina Rain: 5.5 --although abit tight at first, it stretches to conform. I'm pretty sure I'll hate the Simpson last.


Which last would best fit me: Hiro or Olfe? and in which size?

I'm assuming it'll be the same as my Carmina's: 5.5 but would it be any different if it were a Meermin boot?

Does any one know for MTO orders that have decorative nails in the sole (Usually initials)

 

 

 

Will they also do shapes?  Like:

I am a UK 9G and I have a high instep as well. For example, I cannot tie my lace tight on Herring Knightsbridge (which is an Oxford). Fits me fine otherwise.

 

I was wondering if anyone has tried Meermin shoes and know which lasts will suit an oddity like me.


Thank you.

I'd say Olfe in 5.5. It fits similar to Rain.

No need to repost if you don't get an answer the first time. Odds on nobody knows. Try emailing Meermin?

Indeed, you do know Meermin has an email address? Pepe@meermin.es for MTO questions.
