Too much Olfe. No more for me
How about Terrorsquad's chiselled last?
I'd see my self wearing that. Why not...? Didn't even think of it.
Can anyone kindly advise on this? I wear a 8E an AE's 5 last. Slightly tight length wise, width can go a little more snug!
Why don't you email Meermin directly? Given my own experiences, you're looking at 7UK
Looking forward to boots shipping this week.
2nd that comment!
For owners of both Meermin and Carmina suede, is there any major difference in the two that is worth the price hike?
Luisa's recommendation is 7.5UK so i'm seeking more opinions!
Same here. 28cm long, 11cm at the widest part. I have the Hiro DMs in 10UK and they fit alright now. (At first, there was a bit of heel slip and I was afraid it was too loose, but nowadays it seems fine) I think a 9.5UK would still be OK, but anything smaller would definitely be too tight.
Don't own any suede pair from either Carmina or Meermin, but Meermin use split suede (cheaper, less refined) for their classic range, and reversed calf (full leather, higher quality, thicker) for their Linea Maestros. Carmina only use reversed calf, and those I've seen in person and looks to be of quite good quality with great luster.
Is it suitable to buy same size on Hiro and Olfe last?
Because Olfe is seem slightly narrow than Hiro.
Can anyone give some opinion, thanks.
Any update on the midnight calf jodhpur boot? How would people feel about a dark grey/charcoal suede version as well?
I'm waiting for prices from Pepe and then we'd need definite in or out comments from people. I'd say Olfe is the last we're aiming for.
I might be interested too. Maybe we could do two versions? One in navy calf and the other in the hatch grain leather. I am interested in Olfe last though.
