The average was 7-10 days for me (if at all). I got better results by e-mailing [email protected]
nope. usually takes at least twice that, longer with a reply with pictures
How does this work exactly? I chose a model that I like, I send a scan of an outline of my foot with dimensions to their email address and they work it from there?
Come on spill the beans !!! What we thinking of having made up "Northern Hairy Nosed Wombat Uppers with Javan Rhino tanned in Wollemi Pine bark Soles on the Vil Last??"
So, no one else has ordered a pair of Jodhpurs except NAMOR?
Hmm. BTW, what did you do with your pair NAMOR?
I´ve also noticed more heel slipage on my dub monks than on my laced up shoes. I think its generic to dub monks, and not specific to Meermin, though my flat feet may contribute to the slipage.
Here´s how I solved the problem:
1) I asked Meermin to punch another hole on the rear strap. (I bought the dub monks at the Madrid store). This tightened up the back fit, limiting slippage.
2) Because I have really flat feet and wear an orthotic, which raises the foot at mid shoe, I had my cobbler gently stretch the mid foot leather, then punch a new -slightly looser - hole on the forward strap.
Worked for me, though of course YMMV.
Where can I buy the Meermin Chukka boots from the 'Classic collection'? I asked them about it, but they don't answer my e-mails, plus that someone here at SF said that they were available at the webshop a few months ago.
Do they make short wingtips in suede leather?
I sized up from UK10 on the Ama last to UK10.5 on the New Rey last. Wish I didn't, as there is a lot of heel slippage. That said, if I didn't size up, I might have experienced pinched toes.
There is no substitute for measuring, beause I noticed heel slippage on the Carmina wholecuts in the Rain last in a UK10.
Thicker socks and inserts to see if I can reduce heel slippage.
They was available on their website some time ago. I have them in regular calf. You need to email them anyway, because they only accept email orders, so the answer is pretty obvious: that you need to send them a follow up email after 3-4 days if they don't respond.
Sandro told me that in a months time, their webshop will get a bigger selection of shoes.
To echo previous posts on this topic....
Communications with Luisa is a breeze. But when it comes to placing the order with Sandro, the communication all of a sudden just grinds to a halt.
As I type, I am still waiting for a them to send me details on payment.
I'm trying to figure out sizing. I wear a 9E US, and I would wear a 8 UK in the AMA last. I'm looking at the Ron last for the tassel loafer, and I don't know if I should just go 8uk also, or if I should size up to 8.5 UK. Any help would be really really really (do I have enough reallys) appreciated. I'm dying to get these but cant figure out my size.
You need to follow up often.
What size should I order on the RUI last? (interested in these: http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1958#)
I wear a 9D on the AE 5 last (though a 9D in the Lasalle bluchers are too big for me, not sure what size I'd be in those).
For AE, my sizes are something like this:
9D - runs a little long, but ok in width, decided to go with these
8.5E - runs just a touch short, ok in width. Probably could get away with these.
Basically, I'm something like an 8.75D
id do an 8 in the rui
