    Hey everyone,

    I am in the process of trying to figure out which last would be most suitable for me out of the Meermin range.

    I have tried the 348 last in Crockett & Jones (Hallam), with the following noted:
    • 6.5 UK fits slightly narrow, particularly around the little toe area, length is fine; and
    • 7 UK fits slightly loose, especially around the heel of the foot (slippage)

    I emailed Luisa at Meermin regarding sizing and she subsequently provided me with the following response:
    • "In our measures 41EU=7.5UK=25.8cm and 40EU=7UK=25.4cm"

    I've measured my foot and it measures 26.5cm long and 9.6cm wide at the widest point, hence my confusion (as I take 6.5~7UK in C&J).
    Here is the trace of my foot for reference:

    With the information above, would anyone be able to recommend me a suitable last to try?
    Thanks in advance for any advice

    mind showing me a picture of them? What leather did they use? I assume the price would differ a lot from the kind used.

    Does anyone happen to know how often Meermin updates their website with their latest styles that are carried? I am looking for one of the styles they have in a different color but do not want to pay for the LM line. I am hoping the next batch of styles they release will have it available.
