Does someone here have a pair unlined loafers for sale on Grailed? Trying to purchase them but grailed is being stupid.

Much smaller selection on the US site, too.
Yes, I'm not so bothered by pricing differences - after all, that's pretty common across brands and can take into account inventory management, taxes and various other factors (as well as profit, of course!). The thing that irritates me is the way that the same model will be in stock on one Meermin site, but out of stock on another Meermin site.

As an example, the brown shell blucher mentioned above is in stock on the US website, but when I change to the International website and select Australia, it's out of stock. That's not the first time that has happened, either, as I've seen it a few times with different pairs.

I'm looking to buy a pair of unlined loafers on the RON last. I have a pair of oxfords from meermin in the ROIS last size 9UK, which are a little tight in the toe area but fit very nicely otherwise. How does the RON last compare to the ROIS last?

My experience is that Ron is a narrow last, even with the flexibility of the unlined loafer.

I have a pair of the brown soft calf unlined loafers in the RON last. The last is definitely a narrow last. I find my foot, which is a US D width, to be just on the brink of too narrow. I would normally go 0.5 size down to accommodate a loafer, with these I definitely could not otherwise it wouldn't fit in width for me.

Does somebody has experience with the NOD last?
I have.

Have the loafers model 114409 in EU 8-42. Mostly I’m somewhere around these size with 27,2(3) feet’s length. Would say quite comfortable after I fought with the brake in plus my foot found a proper position (but I also have small orthopedic element supporting my arch inserted). Have to say, I use to have trouble with the fit. Often I do stretch or go with this orthopedic inserts. Overall, I would say these are good shoes. Have them in light suede and dark brown.

Already sold out I'm afraid. I came back a bit later for a 10 UK and it was gone. :(

I only hope these aren't discounted factory defects, or "returns" (the eBay store has been offline for a while).

Fyi, I don't think they have advertised this before, but these Cigar shell bluchers are readily available as part of the "Linea Maestro" line:
I am afraid you might be right about these possibly second hand shoes since a lot of shoes are former MTO. I tried my chance with 3 pairs with 2 cordovan...

If I take a 7.5 in Hiro and Ron, what should I take in the Jim? I was considering going up .5, because they are laced and not loafers.

Thank you for the replies, but it seems like they are already out of stock in the sizes that I would consider.

Nice! I was thinking to go with 9UK since according to Meermin is a narrow last. The chukkas I have are on the Hiro, I went 9UK they feel good and don't know if I could go with 8.5UK. The length of your feet, is it measured with drawing the outline with a pencil?

I think that according to Meermin that is a very very narrow last, I think you'll need to size up at least half a size.
Thank you for your reply . My concern is that if i size up a half size the length maybe is too big because me feet is about 27-27.2 cm .
