    That is the second version. The first version is calf, the photos you see are the suede versions Pepe sent to me when I asked if a suede upper could be done. At this time they are both MTO. 12 weeks min.

    I have an email from a couple weeks back that specifically states that Meermin has no plans to introduce the Bals into the main rtw line any time soon. This was on the heels of receiving pics of both the all calf (version 1) and the sued (version 2) Balmorals. The suedes shown are the second version of the boot, not the first. I'll let Meermin post the calf version if they wish, very sharp.

    I was given the option of ordering either version MTO. I tried to skate around the 12 weeks but no dice. I've been asking the folks @ Meermin for Balmorals since July so I am not sure why they'd say the boots are only available MTO if they are in fact going to be mass produced. Perhaps plans have changed (I hope so) but as of 10/29 Bal boots are MTO for the near future.

    For those concerned with the look of the hooks, I do know that meermin is working on making the speed hooks "sleeker".

    Quadcammer, because of the shape. I really like the shape of the last. Hooks ruin any dress boot for me, still waiting to see a similar Meermin pair without the meathooks.

    So is the consensus to size down half a size (i.e. 10 US to 9.5UK) on the olfe last? Or a full size?

    8.5UK

    They're on the Hiro last. Too tight for me, I realize :/

    Have light wear, some scuff marks. I'll get actual pictures soon.

    Does anyone know how the Hiro last compares to Loakes capital last, size-wise? I really want those double monks, and I also need a new pair of captoe oxfords.

    And how is the rui last?

    $48. Still worth it, but frustrating.

    You complain for $48?! [​IMG] How much did you pay for the shoes?
    Where I live, duty + tax amounts to an additional 30%...

    Now (2) weeks since I tried to reach out to Pepe, with no word back.

    13 weeks since I put deposit down. MTO document I was provided stated 12-14 week production time.

    Would appreciate a reply even if it's "we have no started yet".

    This is like dealing with Alden all over again, lol.

    Just got a response from Pepe! That was quick. Pony-hair was delayed with the shell. Thankful for a reply.

    Is there an MTO form you will out that is filled with all the options available or do you need to know exactly what you want and tell them?

    As busy as they are, Meermin reads this thread.

    They will send you a pdf with the options. Not sure if it has been updated in the months since I received, otherwise I could email.
