    Ah, I can't wait to figure out the sizing on these Meermins. Don't think my dubmunks have shipped yet *sigh*

    Edit: I also think the makeup you mentioned above is good - which rubber sole are you going with? The 'dainite' looking one?

    I'd be going with their take on the dainite sole. I'm ashamed to admit that I have more shoes with dainite soles than I do leather ones :embar:, but that is a consequence of geography.

    I hope that your dubmonks will ship soon. :)

    No need for that at all. :) The weather up here in the north is far from ideal with regards to leather soles. I only have leather soles on shoes I use in formal events, the rest I have topyed or already have dainite soles. I just ordered the black oxford cap toes to get a feeling for the Hiro last before - BOOM - shell shortwing bluchers with dainite. :slayer:

    I just got a notification that my MTO shoes shipped and will arrive Monday. :D

    Below are the specs; I'll post pics when they arrive.

    - PTBs
    - Rui last -- modified (from wide to medium + narrow in the heel)
    - Dark brown shell
    - Double leather sole
    - Regular/formal welt (i.e., not storm)

    I have the loudest creaking coming from my double monks today on their maiden outing.

    Furthermore what appears to be slight separation of the sole from the welt.

    Has anyone else had these issues?

    On my suede wholecut the outsole was also seperated from the welt. I contacted Meermin and they told me they probably hadn't gotten enough time to dry and were sent too early. They arranged a TNT collection, and they're on their way to Meermin. I also needed a bigger size, and the belt was also a bit too long, and wasn't in the same colour as the shoes, so it wasn't really a problem to me since I had to exchange them anyway.

    I will email them.

    I already had to send the first pair back because I was sent the wrong colour.

    I wear a 9.5d in AE Park Aves- can anyone recommend a comparable last/size
    or should I contact Meermin with a trace like I've seen mentioned?

    Looks like $200 shipped? is that accurate?

    The consensus here is about US size - 1, which will equal 8.5. This is the Hiro last which are one of the more used by others here.

    Double monks too? Pending my review , I have my eye on the 10164 Goodyear welts (light natural)
    Ditto, I am hoping the product is as good as the service. Looks promising

    I'm looking forward to the photos of that chukka! On the site they didn't look that great, but we all know those photos don't give a good representation of the shoes.

    Oh, no. I've got a pair of brown double monks already. Checking out the dark brown cap toes, fills a hole in the collection and will allow me to gauge the last for my upcoming custom order.
