    Looking good guys, I got mine too. Park looks great! Next time.. :p Olfe seems wider in the forefoot than I thought it would be, but they're not unwearable. Bit of a gamble I guess, but with the soles/nails and everything we got I'm very happy with them.

    If there is no heel slip you can always get a rubber insole to thighten things up.

    and if there is heal slip you can get a tounge pad to push your foot back towards the heel

    I am always of the opinion that if there is something off just fix it. I litterally went and bought an lenght of wool and made traces of my foot with it and made my own stacked wool insole that I stuck into my wolveriene 1000 mile boots. (They are as roomy as they come)

    I think they're fine as-is. Just not as snug as my Ron or Hiro shoes. Maybe I'll try Park for my next Meermin purchase.

    Took delivery today, very pleased with the shoes and the belt. My shoes is lacking the initials on the sole which I ordered. Not a big deal really, would just have been cool to have them there. Did You other guys got it..?

    Hey nice shoes guys, sorry to intrude on your thread but I placed an order for a copper suede belt and I was how much you guys were charged for your belts and how did sizing work out? Thank you kindly.

    Does anyone that got a belt know how to size it correctly for Ironist?

    Ironist: I use trousers with a inner waist around the belt line of 78-80 cm, real measurement and not a vanity size stated by the maker. Meermin belts in size 32"/80cm fits me perfect and I use the middle hole out of the 5 punched in the belt. If the trousers have a thicker fabric I sometimes need to let it out one hole to the second from the end. My usual belt size from other makers is also the same so I think the Meermin belts is quite "true" to size. Hopes this helps :)

    Always better to buy longer / bigger - and either cut or punch more holes.
