    Quote: Unfortunately I didn't pay attention to their belts, but I'm planning a visit to the store soon to check out the dissected models they have and see if they use gemming or a carved feather (I'm quite sure their classic line uses gemming, but not so sure about Linea Maestro). I could have a look at their belts, too.

    From all the info I've gathered up about Meermin and experience had with Loake's leather, I'm quite sure the Meermins are far more superior in quality.

    Can anyone comment on the sizing of the Hiro last in comparison to the Loake capital last?

    I am also interested to know, as the double monks above are in that last. Can anyone tell me the appropriate size if I wear a US size 10D in Allen Edmonds? Can anyone confirm the total cost, including shipping and less VAT for the Classic line ( such as this double monk) to the United States? Is there also any additional import duties to the US? I am new to ordering from overseas.

    Meermin double monks are €162.12 shipped to N.A. via UPS (€127.12 VAT free + €35 shipping).

    If your are a US10D, you will need a UK9F in the Loake Capital last. Length should be perfect, although I feel the width falls somewhere between a US D and E width based on a previous experience with another shoe made on the Capital last.

    Thanks for this information - I was actually trying to ascertain the correct size for the Meermin monk on the Hiro last. Any knowledge on this?

    I have absolutely no idea, im guessing they are better as someone has already mentioned. I was just in the market for a pair and thought what the heck give it a go. At these prices ?? que sera!! JUst thought i'd give it a whirl and see what the fuss is all about. My Carminas are wonderful and my logic is its the same people .............. lets see. Delivery expected soon so i'll report back as and when.

    Could it be that Meermin supplies soles to other manufacturers?

    Anyways, if they're made in China I couldn't care less. I don't see how a Chinese factory would be different from a Spanish one...
