Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 613

post #9181 of 10973
Has anyone had any success in getting a response from pepe on MTO request?

I have emailed him maybe 3 times now across a few months apart and still have not received any response

Very nice! I ordered the same shoe in early January. 10.5UK. Would you mind sharing your total turnaround time from ordering to ship date?

 

2 days. I emailed asking whether it was in stock.

I can also confirm, tha Meermin seemingly have improved their logistics considerably:


•01/feb/2014 Order introduced into the system.

•04/feb/2014 Order initiated.

•13/feb/2014 Order paid.

•13/feb/2014 Order finished.

•13/feb/2014 Order send it.

Same deal with me. No firm order from me, just some exploratory questions about leather/style availability three different times, and no response. I chalked up the silence at first to travel/holidays. But now, it's like, I can certainly find other uses for $400+ without chasing him down.

Thx!

What last is the Hiro similar to? I'd rather have it slightly wider than my Rain last... not really a big fan of it.

Your milage of this trick may vary but I too hadn't had any responses from Pepe from a couple of emails last year so emailed luisa and she then got pepe back into the communications quickly.  I have a funny feeling the guy gets a tonne of emails and is very busy, that being said their organisational capacity or unwillingness to hire an admin person to deal with this stuff isn't necessarily a customers concern.

 

I think its too early to say whether they have improved logistics or not the reality is shoes they have in stock have always shipped quite quickly its when they aren't in stock, which is most cases where you should set your expectations to a month.

Another dumb question.
 

Is their any difference between boot versus shoe sizing in meermin?

 

So if I fit very snug/good fit on 7.5 UK olfe shoe

will I also fit 7.5UK olfe on an meermin boot?

I think that would depend on your feet and preference.

 

For me its the same.

 

In other unrelated news, Meermin will be sourcing its museum calf from now on with Tannery Haas.

Thanks terror :)

I will have to try the same then


Also one other question someone may know.

Does shell cordovan expand like calf leather?

For instance I know in my calf-leather shoes started snug but after a week of wear were very comfortable. Will shell cordovan loosen up the same way?

Shell will loosen up, but it will take longer.

Ok good to know. I knew shell had a tighter grain but I wasn't sure if it would expand the same way.

 

I am so excited my first pair of:
1) shell

2) balmoral boots

3) sleek last/no heel slip (unlike AE :P )

From my experience, shell would not stretch, at least not the same as calf.

The hiro fits slightly bigger than the clarks db for the above sizes. I tried the us8 on the hiro for 20 wears but it never got comfortable.

thanks!

 

i'm a little nervous so am going to try on some loake's & see how i go...& maybe come back & do a bit more reading if i'm still not sure

Just an small update. I should have searched before I asked:

 

http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?93024-Alden-Breakin-Will-Cordovan-Stretch.

Looks like most report it does losen to fit over time.

post #9195 of 10973
so... if I were a 5.5 in Carmina's rain last and I wanted to get a Meermin shell in Hiro... would I want to stay the same size or go up half ?

Carmina's Rain last took a few wears to get it to stretch to my comfort.
