    Yes, it was a sizing question but I had a brain fart.

    I emailed Meermin about this instead http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2309 in burgundy. After a few email exchange with Jose, I reserved a 9.5UK with an ETA of a month.

    I spent the night a girls place, woke up and thought it was a prime time to take photos of the shoes after a night out. Then I got home and put trees in them. Who the hell carries around shoe trees with them? But if it's that necessary maybe I'll carry a manbag out to hold some trees

    I'm a bit unclear on what you mean, especially since you inserted a link into my sentence.

    If you're referring to what I wrote, I just mean they took a few more wears before they broke in. It's not significant, however, and I still think Meermin is the best affordable footwear brand available right now. In the interest of not seeming like a shill, I tried to find at least a few faults I could mention, and that was the best I could do.

    oops, i was wondering about the colour but didn't bother. i hope it wasn't a pron site.

    stiffness is not necessarily a fault, nvm. actually i didn't know that you have experinence with more expensive footwear. you are not posting long enough that i realized that.

    If I have wider feet would I be able to wear the hiro last? I'd like to avoid going MTO if possible.

    hey how long does it usually take after payment of an in-stock item to ship? Paid yesterday, just curious. I'm sure this has been asked but just to save me from searching through it thanks!

    Probably. I have wide feet for my size and both Ama and Hiro lasts fit very comfortably, they are roomy lasts.

    How's the Ama last in comparison with the Hiro? Tighter at the toes? Nice shoes!

    The fit is quite similar. I can't see differences in width, but the instep and the toe area seem to be just a tad tighter with the Ama last.
