So my shoes are pretty much broken in now. My steps (pun intended) was wearing them 3 days a week. Going for 15 - 20 min walks at lunch time (WFH). It took about 10 wears to break them in.
The first 2-3 wears, the leather was stiff and the shoe was tight (elton last) . But they have softened up and my pinky toe is no longer in discomfort. I did not experience the some of the horror stories that I have read on here and Reddit regarding break in, thankfully. Yes it was tight and uncomfortable but not unbearable to walk in.

In future, I plan to buy more from Meermin. Probably on to boots now as I know my sizing and my new job is very casual to the point where we can wear jeans and sneakers.

Can anyone offer a comparison between Rui and AE 65 in a E wide fitting? I've read a lot of posts about people sizing down in the Rui because of the extra width. But would the Rui fit fairly TTS if you're a AE 65 E?

Also, what's the instep like on Rui? I have my eye on a pair of boots.

Has anybody had experience with 101387 - RUST WAXY COMMANDER?
I'm looking for a boot that I could wear when going hiking or fishing or just with casual outfit on rainy days.
I'm a bit worried about the fit, since I have a rather low instep. I have a pair of double monks on hiro last and I use the last hole in the strap. But maybe it would still be fine considering laces and thicker socks?

Got my shipping notification
Got mine yesterday as well!

Estimated delivery is tomorrow, though I'm not going to hold my breath on that, since as of last night it said label created, unless their warehouse is close to me, or they are doing next day I'm guessing Monday, or Tuesday at the latest. Either way I'm super stoked!

All MTOs across the board are delayed yeah; I'm just hoping I do get a shipping notification instead of just a surprise like last time.
I’ve done a couple of MTOs in the past and don’t recall ever getting a shipping notice. I did get a consolation prize of a wooden shoe horn and polishing brush once for a late delivery.
