They used areas of leather not used by say John Lobb in parts of shoe but otherwise a steal for price paid. One metal toe tip slightly off as well.

They probably improved clicking on new models, this is from very first run of museum and have very limited wear on them. My other classic line shoes have held up great

It was an GMTO run, SF actually ordered the same exact GMTO twice. They have a similar one on their website but in Plum Museum.

I say we go for 3!  In fact, they should probably just add that to the LM line permanently :)

Hmmm, I've been on the fence with these for what seems like forever (a year?).

The photos are appreciated, but am I the only one who thinks these look like calf? I'm not saying anyone made a mistake, I'm just saying there isn't that depth of color or even roll to the creases that I'm accustomed to with shell. Is it that they are black, is it the photos, or Is it just me?

I'm new here so apologies if this has been posted beforehand.

 

I have tried Meermin before; I bought the double monks "classic" for 160 euros with the hiro last (its standard right?) and they fit me well. Though, I need to buy a pair of black shoes to match with my navy suit as it is interview-season on campus.

 

Now to the deal; I have tried to email Pepe regarding the Linea Maestro "vil" last on sizes etc. I cannot seem to find the particular shoe on the website as they only have New Rey… I mailed him without getting any reply, so I thought I should try here. I am mainly wonder how much difference there is between Carminas Rain last and Meermins Vil/New Rey last. Which one of Vil or new rey is more similar to the rain last (as it is the only one I have that is particularly narrow)? And why isn't the Vil last available on the website?

 

In Meermins hiro last I wear 8,5. However, I assume that the Vil last needs a size up… or two, maybe?

 

Thank you.

If you fit hiro. You can try olfe.

 

 

You should stay the hell away from VIL or NEW RAY.

Dont size up to make an bad fitting shoe fit your foot. <- this should be common sense...

 

Vil is an discontinued last. New ray took its place for those folks with abnormally thin feet.

Thank you for the information! Is olfe more pointier than hiro?

 

I didn't know it was discontinued! It is not about me having very thin feet, quite the contrary really; it's more that I have started to dislike round lasts and want more narrow lasts like carminas rain or perhaps new rey… What do you think?

Rain is not on the narrow side, it "looks" narrow by its chiseled toe.

Aha! I didn't know that. Just learned the term also. "Chiseled".

 

So, with regards to you understanding Carminas rain last - which of Meermins lasts would you say is most similar to rain?

If Rain Last fits you well, you probably have average - wide feet.

Try Ama for the classic line, olfe for the Line Maesto. (these are average fitting last with soft square / pointy toe box)

Avoid New Rey except you have narrow feet.

Update on the Derby/Galway Shearling lined boot...

 

From my count we have 17, more than enough to get this to run. I will email Pepe with the questions I have collected and see what our options are. If you do not see your name and or want in, please PM me.

 

denbo;  Jokanevad;  Ironist;  groen36;  cynicallysilly; laufer;  quasi-lurker;  tommygoodkin;  p.henrik; griffon_id;  phphl;  budapest12;  Aieyric; davidlane;  SuitingStyle; sarteaga; cbbuff;

 

As soon as I hear back from Pepe, we will get this made up!

Olfe and Hiro are narrow. Again ill say it again. You should be buying shoes with respect to what fits not what all the fancy fashion gurus tell you (Which at the moment means very sleak). If you fit olfe you will not fit new ray. (in almost every case, i want to stop you from an possible costly mistake)

 

New ray is just supper narrow. Like 1-1.5 standard deviations off the average, B width. I bet 1/10 ish people can fit it. And those people do not fit olfe/hiro well. Their is an reason that almost all mto's on this forum exclude New Ray. Olfe an hiro are on the average D/D- width.

 

If you do not want rounded toes any more just buy a chisel toe. Meermin will have a chiseled toe last called park soon.
