Pretty limited sizing options, at least for 9.5-10UK. I’m passing up the sale.

I think I jumped to quick on the sale. I bought the Wingtip boots in Rui last size 7.5uk.

I'm a 7uk in Carmina Rain and Inca last. (both are a nice snug fit in the toes)
I'm a 8.5us in Allen Edmonds 65 last. (I have a tiny bit of extra room in the toes)

My brannock size is 8.5us, and recommendation was to go one size down for Rui last in uk. Should I have gone with a 7? There might still be time...

Is something strange going on with Meermins site?

I registered to receive notifications as to when they were rereleasing the cigar shell blucher and just received an email saying it was back in stock.

Went to check site and it’s nowhere to be seen.

I haven’t tried Meermin yet so no idea if this is normal or not.

Size 7 UK RUI seems more logical, though I have not tried that last.

what meermin last have you tried and what size are they? and what size are you in carmina lasts?
I haven't tried Carmina.

10.5D in Allen Edmonds 65, 10 UK Elton, 9.5 UK Hiro (somewhat tight). On second thought, the 7.5 UK RUI is safer for you, IMO.

You might find this chart useful:
View attachment 1149483
I know this is an old post, but these Meermin last charts are off by a mile - unless I've missed something?

I'm a size 10.5E UK. I Have the measurements for the largest last I own. The bottom length (not stick) is 304.57. The bottom width is 97.9 and I would comfortably fit in their size 10.

Based on this chart I'm an Elton 9.0 and Hiro 9.5. I'd be like Cinderella's ugly sisters trying on her glass slipper with these sizes.

why do you think you are different size for shoes and boots in the same last?
I normally take Simpson last shoes with UK7.5 because it’s too narrow for me. Then I bought Suede Chelsea Boots in Simpson last UK7.5. After break in, it became a bit loose for me. Secondly I choose a lama calf Jumper also in Simpson last. But this time I choose UK7 and it fits very well.

Thanks for the insight.

My 7.5uk rui boots are due to arrive Monday. They shipped it out right when I was chatting with customer service. We shall see....

Did anyone here receive the Nov MTO Rapello snuff-e?!

Very disappointed in receiving now two different pairs in 4 months.
Both of doubtable quality and NOT AT ALL on par with product pictures. The second pair furthermore arrived scuffed like a factory second, first pair had military style hooks instead of eyelets and also a couple of scuffs.

View attachment 1365374

Both pairs wrong color (more like chestnut), no beautiful contrast stiching like the pictures, and days of fighting 'customer service' even though I supplied high res photos showing it was a completely different set of boots. I think now more than 40 emails for this one order.

Trustpilot seems to be filled with people who had similar experiences.

But. I'm curious - did ANYONE receive the above order, as it was originally described??
Sorry for your experience.

As has been said in this thread before, the ONLY place you should buy meermins from is their ebay seconds store, because there you can see pictures of the actual shoe you will receive.
