The rubber soles look great. I wish all my "mistakes" turned out to be as nice as this one.

I’m a 9 UK in Hiro & 8.5 UK in Rui & Rois and went with a 8.5 UK in the HOK; great fit! The 9 UK would’ve been too long.
This horse ass feels pretty soft.
Does Meermin send inserts with every boot on the HOK last? If so, that’s really impressive and a good way to increase foot volume, if one missed size or prefers closer fitting boots.
I’m happy to say these fit very well, I did the initial try on with thin socks and could wear them with medium thick socks. Oddly, I don’t think I like the shape of the HOK last.
I’m very happy with my boots and regret not getting another pair in the ridge unicorn. @Meermin

I really enjoy the side profile of these boots. I regret going to the rubber sole option, I tried emailing Meermin about switching to it soles and it was too late.View attachment 1644243View attachment 1644245
A close inspection of the welt, it’s not the cleanest but the welt wasn’t the biggest determinant attribute of getting a pair.View attachment 1644246
This is weird right here, if you look closely you’ll see pen outlining the heel. I thought it was funny.View attachment 1644247
This is as much variation I got on my pair of toscanello booty. Not much marbling/variation like other toscanello hides.View attachment 1644248View attachment 1644244

I think I have asked this before but don't remeber getting an asnwer. How does the NOD last fit?

According to the last description it's low instep... so that makes me think of Carmina's Uetam last and if that's the case I would need 9UK.

Thank you and no, it’s Maryam toscanello borsebutt.
Now that you’ve mentioned it, they are very reminiscent of the Snowdon boots 🧐

I tried them on with the inserts and they’re too snug, but I didn’t like the added layer. I’m not sure if I would size up tho, as there feel just right in length. I’m thinking of using the inserts for other pairs. Didn’t you order 2 pairs? That hatch grain looks great.
I see. I’m very fond of all the horse butt leather pairs in my shoe room, it ages beautifully.

Yes I ordered the Havane hatch grain and marbled green shell, I haven’t received the shell pair yet. I screwed up on my first pair of HOK lasted shoes back in September last year, and ordered my normal UK8.5, they are too big.
On the Havane/Shell pairs I went with UK8, and based on the Havane pair, the fit is absolutely perfect. As I mentioned previously, they are the best fitting pair of RW shoes I have for my widish foot.

Hello, what is the model number for this boot? This stitch down Meermin is very unusual.

Deliveries are being made for the Meermin seconds sale. I got mine delivered today, can't wait to reach home to check my order out.

Just the same here in France : 4 pairs delivered (1 order out of 2). 1 perfect is perfect and 3 have light defects.
what were those defect? I'd love to partecipate in the sales but no photo and no return (illegally) seems a sure way to get scammed. For example I'd get ones with marked soles without thinking twice, but would never buy those with clear deep stains in visible parts.

Yes I can understand. I will take pictures of the faulty parts so that you can figure out. But, again, it's a lottery...

I suppose if more than 1 in 2 is wearable by my standard, it's statistically worth it, ahah. Thanks for the help.

It was a sale on "seconds", with different kind of defects. Each pair is different to the other, so it's quite impossible to have photos on every item. If you decide to buy, you are accepting their terms (no returns, as it is a "seconds" sale), so it's not illegal. If you feel that you are going to get scammed, simple solution, do not buy.

For once, the stitching work and the overall built of the boot seem really good. They seem to be a very nice catch.
The heel pad of the boots have the "Linea Maestro" stamp so this MTO would have cleaner stitchwork and construction than the regular line. Happy with how they turned out!
