    The sole splitting is certainly not good, but that upper looks like it is 10 years old, and the bigger concern for me.....

    the glue didn't hold up good enough. it will get worse, if you don't have it fixed.

    this happens sometimes.

    Any shoe repair shop can fix that. Or do it yourself with a little Barge cement and a small clamp.

    Where were these purchased?

    To be fair, the photos were taken under very poor lighting and the uppers were pretty scuffed up.
    It's not as bad IRL as it seems from the photo.


    Thank you fritzl. Will try to persuade the GF to take it back to the store.

    Just find out those "Meermin Rubber Top" shoes are from a Japanese brand named "PIDO".
    I'm sorry for all the misunderstanding.

    My 3-yr-old daughter is demanding, I poop you not, that I watch "Cinderella" w/ her. So the commentary on these magic slippers will have to wait til later.

    Based on my 9.5UK size in AS last 87, C&J 337, etc. Mr. Albaladejo suggested I go w/ 9.5, & I did. The length is pretty close to perfect, but the width is a little too narrow. The curve of the shoe matches the ball of my foot & instep, but it's a little tight in the vamp along the top ridge of my foot that parallels the instep. After about 15 hours of wear over 2 days the shoes are stretching, & I hope that they'll keep stretching. If not, I'll have a cobbler stretch them a little & add another hole in the buckle-strap closer to the toe (there's only 1 position!). I asked via email whether I should've ordered a 10 or wider fit, here's the reply I got from Mr. Albaladejo:


    Well, currently we are producing standard wide for our lasts (Each last its width; The New Rey is one of the narrower lasts, we have other lasts which are wider) but as a MTO we can make the a wider New Rey.
    In my opinion I think is better to have a wider MTO New Rey instead of taking a 10, if the length is the right one.


    More later on finish.

    Sorry to hear about that, please email us at: info@meermin.es and we will replace the pair, because this is not usual.

    Thank you very much.

    VERY Excited about ordering a pair or two of these in the near future! Can't wait for the online shop!!

    Approximately what total cost am I looking at to import a "classic line" aka Double Monks minus VAT w/ shipping to the USA???
