This is.

Measure level across. If you are just 105 at the widest point then I would get an 8uk (olfe/hiro)

I'm a 9.5D in 5-last and 9.0D in 1-last since it's wider.

In my experience, AE's 5 is slightly more narrow than the Hiro and Olfe. I typically take a medium width in all shoes, but the 5 is just a hair too narrow to be comfortable. On the other hand, I've found the width of the AE 1, Hiro, and Olfe to fit me about the same (10.5D in AE and 9.5 UK in Hiro and Olfe).

My AE 5 last shoes and my Olfe shoes both fit great and comfortably. My Hiro shoes (double monks) don't fit as well - I get some heel slip so it seems a bit wide but at the same time the toes are snug because the shoe comes to a point at the end.

Here's a pic I took of the cognac classic line oxfords at the Trunk Show in November. I have a few more here.

My wife and I were in Madrid in December and they didn't have the cognac/walnut whole cuts in here size so Sandro put in the order for them to be made and I also put in an order for the brown tassel loafers in the Ron last

 

 

The channel isn't closed on the goodyear welt on the women's pairs.

I was wondering if any one was interested in a MTO with Leaf Green Shell Cordovan.

 

In maybe a Olfe Last with a reverse stitch balmoral or regular balmoral or wholecut or something else, even a boot.

 

The leather color would be like:

 

 

And an example of reverse stitch is:

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

This was the first time I had seen reverse stitching and thought it was cool IDK if it as structurally as strong as a regular stitch. But it did look interesting. But it definitely hides the stitches at the expense of looking a bit more mushroomy.

 

If anyone is familiar with reverse stitching and knows any pros/cons for it I would like to know.

 

I also thought as you wear this it would get some pretty sick patina on that green leather. Depending on your shoe crème regimen. 

 

Some other green Shell cordovan pics I found (not Meermin):

Absolutely interested in Leaf Green Shell Cordovan!
Suggesting style: triple monk boots
Suggesting last: new chiseled last (similar to Olfe but more chiseled)
The boots will be something like the picture below but in different color...

FYI

I asked meermin if they had a midnight blue (like the eg/g&g) color, and they said no.
