    I'm actually wearing my AE FA with a thin insole right now, and they are noticeably larger than my Meermins. I would advise you to inly drop down .5 size if the 5 last fits snug.

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking. Meermin recommended wearing the same size, but looking at the measurements provided, the width on the Hiro/Olfe lasts seem narrower than my 5 last shoes (which are as narrow as I can go). Length seems comparable, yes?

    I had a picture some pages back, but after what I remember the length is about the same.

    As someone still on the fence about their next shoe, this was a huge help. Even though they didn't work out for you, you were pleased with their customer service. That's huge to me. Admittedly, I was/am concerned with QC issues, but hearing how responsive and willing they were is awesome.

    From what I've read, all the issues seem to be with the classic line. Might be worth just spending a little more for the LM line.

    I just placed an order for the following LM model and can't wait for it to arrive.

    I'm very pleased with their customer service indeed. Their goal isn't just to make money, their goal is to get satisfied customers, and even though I didn't get shoes, I'm still happy that I tried them. And I actually still got a belt from them, so it wasn't all for nothing after all.

    I haven't dug through all of the QC posts, but that's helpful considering I'm looking at the linea maestro line almost exclusively. I figure if I'm going to step out of my AE/Alden lineup, I may as well give Meermin a chance to wow me with their LM offerings. Either that or I've gotta step into Carmina, which is still very possible. Thanks for that.

    I'll add a nod to their outstanding customer service.
    I sent them a pic of the issue with my LM cordovan NSTs and they responded right away asking me to ship them back.

    A replacement isn't currently in stock so they offered to have me wait 30 days for a replacement (and send me a pair of shoe trees for my trouble), to exchange them for another model, or to be issued a refund.

    Jose and Sandro have shown nothing but exemplary customer service.

    I'm also very happy with the LM suede monks I've ordered as well.

    I can see myself being a customer of theirs for a long while.

    Now after walking a bit longer in my MTOs (the blue pair on Ama last, size 9 UK) I must say that even though they're not as roomy as my C&J Drummonds (9 E), they're definitely bigger than my near perfectly fitting Barkers (8.5 G). I have to wear the Meermins with an insole so I really should have gotten a size smaller. Based on that, I'd say that if C&J 348 is just a tad roomy for you, Meermin in same size on Ama last should be pretty good. I'd even go as far as say that the Ama last is better looking than the 348.

    Hi,

    Do Meermin size roughly similar to Loake?

    Im an 8 in most Loake lasts (some fitting better than others), but my foot measures 270mm long and 105mm wide: by some of the details provided here I would be a 9 in Meermin, which seems a huge difference.

    I have nearly the same measurements. You are size UK 8.5 with the Hiro last.. Probably need to go UK 9 for the New Rey.

    I think he mentioned they are officially closed. This time of the year most places in europe kare closed for between 1-4 weeks for summers holidays, as are most of my suppliers. I'm sure he mentioned they would be closing for only 1 week. That said I received an email from him mid week, so they may be only replying to urgent emails (which mine was as my shoes were stuck in Spain for 11 days at TNT).

    What is this business with fedex calling me because they are over $250 when I ordered 2 pairs? I have some sort of form to fill out?

    Import duties on shoes - sounds like they have flagged your package to me. I believe it will be 18%.

    OK- I spoke with the lady from fedex on the phone and she actually said I wouldn't be getting charged... I will check it out though. I also emailed Luisa, more out of curiosity than anything, as I had been dealing with her on this order, and she told me Sandro was going to be taking care of it.


    Meermin customer service FTW again!

    I didn't get charged the same day. They sent me a bill.
