    I've just got into the Madrid's Meermin shop and I've had this baby (well, not yours exactly)in my hands: that's beauty. Congratulations!

    Thanks both, I'm looking forward to their arrival. I have a pair of EG Chelsea in navy calf on the 202 that they will be replacing...

    Navy EG's (for Kurt Geiger) when new...

    Hopefully the Meermin's will look a little sleeker. If they fit well, I think I may be back for more Linea Maestro goodness :)

    The navy looks very unique but what sort of outfit goes with them?

    Received these this week. Left one is the Linea Mastro and the right one is the classic. LM in size 6.5UK and Classic in 6UK. Both don't fit and need to ship them back for an exchange for half a size bigger. Can't get my feet into the LM when laced and barely squeeze into the classic one.



    I wear size 7D on Allen Edmonds 7 and 5 last.

    Ok guys, here is a picture of the new chiseled last. According to Pepe:

    1) similar to the New Rey last but has a different toe box;
    2) a more marked edge along the side;
    3) a higher instep;
    4) a modified heel cup; and
    5) more volume on the area below to enhance the fitting of the sleek last

    This last will be lasted soon and I will provide more pictures. I personally like it and am imagining it as a as sleek chukka in hatchgrain ala G&G [​IMG]

    That sucks mate but is also interesting that you sized down like that and they still didn't fit. Im a 9D in the AE 5 last and a regular 8UK based on loakes so I just ordered an 8UK, fingers crossed.

    Guess the OP could answer but based on the lines and the styles looks like Olfe and Hiro (classic)

    They do look great. But with them being similar to the New rey and from how narrow at the ball area it looks I'm really afraid that they won't work for me :-( I have feet that border to wide, and have a juvenile hallux valgus which makes me unable to wear too tight fitting shoes. And don't want to go up much in size and have super long shoes, that's never good IMO.

    New last looks great. Would love a pair of sleek chukkas. I remember someone mentioning that meermin was consisting a brick and mortar store in nyc. Any developments in that end?

    So, I put in an order for two pairs of RTW shoes and get a confirmation email saying it will take 30 days


    WUT? What happens if I cancel the order on the 15th day, 31st day? I don't get the logistic of it if it is suppose to be RTW.

    Email from Pepe re: Museum Calf Brown Mk. II

    All good, things are on schedule. Museum calf has been secured from Ileca and should be all shipped out by early Nov, as scheduled.

    In the mean time I'll probably end up buying more Meermins! Haha

    From my experience with New Rey an higher instep should be better for me, at the same time I'm curious to see how the modified heel cup comes out.
    Very interesting anyway, please keep us posted!!

    That seems a bit strange, so they are going to get a delivery from a company that doesn't exist anymore?

    The Linea Mastro is on the New Rey last and the classic is on the Hiro last.
