I'm 9.5D in the 5 last without insole and I get heal slippage with the Hiro dub monks in 8.5UK.
They usually advise sizing down 1 for the classic line but a half size for the Linea Maestro. Of course, that's because of the lasts they use, but that also means you might get lucky. The half size down you chose could work out well for you. I'm a size 7D on AE's 5-last, and I ordered a whole size down for the classic line double monks. If I receive them before your order is finalized, I'll try to leave some feedback on here as to the fit, and that may help you make a final choice.
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind when ordering.
Going to Barcelona in the end of may and checking out the Carmina store, so if I choose to get dubmonks from their store in Barca I probably won't buy dub monks from Meermin.
Agreed, go for 9.5. I'm UK 9.5 on both lasts (026 and Hiro), and I couldn't have sized down.
Can any of you guys guess what last this is made in?
I found it on their Tumblr site. It's an MTO completed early December.
I'm in Toronto as well and was wondering if you could let me know how much (as well as duties and taxes) your shoes came out to.
They look awesome and I'm itching to order a couple of pairs.
Sorry about the double post...
Sounds great, do you have any shoes on the Rui last? Considering a pair of derbys and/or chukkas but they are on the Rui last and not the Hiro (which I think I'm a UK9.5 in).
Checked out the picture of the different lasts, but the difference doesn't seem significant. (E width and EE width)
No, unfortunately not. Talk to "Herr Brun" back at Diskusjon though, he has shoes on both Rui and Hiro.
Are you looking at the karangrain longwings from the classic collection by chance? I'm close to pulling the trigger on them myself.
Just ordered the snuff suede double monks from the classic line. This will be my second pair of Meermins. Hope they get shipped soon!
Just thinking out loud here, but has anyone ever simply gone to Meermin and said, I'm a size "x", what do you have in stock? I imagine this would save time but it'd be a luck of the draw. Just curious.
I've asked. They will tell you. Whatever they have in stock can ship immediately.
The navy naturcalfs look interesting but im struggling to imagine what colours/pants would actually go with the navy
Thanks for the tip, I will.
I was thinking of getting these http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1947, as they are quite cheap, rubber soled and looks quite decent.
Sweet. Getting the same but in an MTO New Rey.
