I'll show you a better picture. That's a good point that you raise and something I can use in my correspondence with meermin. 

 

 

 

Sorry about the quality, was taken on my phone.

 

 

That does looks very thin/poor quality though doesn't it?

If you poke at the white spot do you hit plastic?

Maybe try putting some water on it does it discolor like leather? Or does it stay the same color?

 

If you are hitting plastic that is some very thin leather which could be more meermins fault.

 

It does however look like a scratch from you rubbing/scratching your foot against something. Which would really be your fault.

 

In which case buy some leather glue *(barge rubber cement is really good) put just an small ammount on the flap and close it. And do not worry about it. Condition an polish it as usual.

 

Your only hope is if they agree that the leather was way too thin and as a result broke. On the webpage they say leather is 1.3-1.5 mm thick(classic line black). So try measuring it

 

Also to help with knowing how thick different leathers look:

Does anyone have experience working out their size by emailing Meermin measurements? & if so has this worked out ok?

 

I asked them & they sent me an outline of a sole which I've used to measure my foot & have sent them the measurements to get a size recommendation.

 

I'm going to order some but am a little nervous re sizing...

 

FWIW I'm after shoes on the Hiro last & I'm 28cm long & 10cm wide using their guide

you should be fine with sizing when you provide them that.

(Basically I want to know if the Museum calf is also high quality leather(better than classic line) or is it just nicely patina-ed classic line leather? -- by "quality" I mean leather strength.)

(I care more about leather strength than prettyness but I would like both :P )

Better - thicker and suppler than even the linea maestro calf. Looks better too

Thank you !!! good to know for the future.

 

I am an succker for strong leather and am biased by shell codovan because of that. But I may try out the Museum Calf one day then.

If I sized up .5 in the Hiro last, would this be the same for Rui last? Or I can wear TTS since Rui vamp and toe box is roomier, according to photos.
post #9594 of 11616
^ The Rui has lots of volume compared to the Hiro. I'd go TTS or down .5.
post #9595 of 11616
^Thanks for the input. I will stay TTS most likely (UK 7.5) as I still find the UK 8 Hiro a tad tight at times (maybe it's just my feet though as it starts to get sore by end of the day).

I want to get a pair of meermin shoes but not sure about the size... I used to get UK 9 for other brands like magnanni, paul smith, havent really tried others. I tried to google it but got mixed feedback. Sent an email to meermin and they told me UK 9 is equivalent to 296mm 100mm for insole.. I can measure by myself but for sure it may not be accurate.

Really would like to hear your advice for new rey last. Thanks!

Anyone else waiting for their plum museum shoes to get shipped?

I would say this is a special case. They just got it in stock and I assume they are working out supply line kinks.

 

If you are not able to wait you probably dont want meermins in the first place... But if you are able to wait they offer by far the best price on museum calf under the sun.
