    Anyone who have had their meermins for a few months notice creaking/squaking sounds when walking?

    Both my hiro captoe and olfe mto squak and lets down my perception of their quality :(

    I had this after a week, they were unwearable it was so loud. They admitted it was a problem and changed the pair. The new ones do it ever so slightly but less noticeable.

    do you guys just compliment anything people up with?

    Sorry gyasih, but those look weird. How you intend to wear them, I have no idea

    The soles aren't finished yet. If that makes a difference to you. I suspect they'll be black? G?

    Not yet but I've only worn mine 4 times. They are still a bit tight on the crease where the leather is still softening up but no creaking so far. All I've been doing is putting a coat of renovateur on after each wear so far. I have a pair of C&J that do this but I suspect it's due to an imperfect fit and that I have to use a thin insole in them.

    understood, but really, what do you wear those with


    the sole treatment ain't the problem here. This doesn't just go for meermin btw. Many of the mto G&Gs are freaking hideous

    I have to check what color I asked for the soles. The shoe is burgundy and brown, so we'll see what the finished product looks like.

    I will wear with trousers and whatever else looks good with them when I get them. If I wanted a plain Oundle, I would have gotten EG. I have enough traditional SF shoes.

    Kev, I really like how yours are coming along. I see we may have our shoe completed at the same time.
