    I have a problem with Meermin, and would appreciate some advice.

    I have placed my first order approximately 45 days ago. I received the confirmation, and waited for the invoice. 15 days ago I received an e-mail from Meermin stating that the shoes are almost ready, and that I should finalize the payment.

    I paid through PayPal, exactly the amount stated in the invoice (shoes+shipping), and last Friday I received the shipment confirmation from Fedex.

    Yesterday I received an e-mail via PayPal that Meermin would like me to pay the additional sum of 49 Euro, no notice from the seller attached. I have sent two e-mails to Meermin yesterday, asking what is this about, and received no reply.

    Fedex tracking shows that the shipment still has not been picked up from Meermin.

    Anyone had an experience like this?

    Hi everyone! Been browsing SF quite a while, but first time joining and posting. I have a sizing question.

    I fit very snug in in Allen Edmonds 9D (Park Avenue/5 Last), and was wondering what sizing I should go for? I emailed customer service with my measurements and was told to opt for a size 8UK on every last, but a 8.5 on the New Rey.

    Here are my measurements:
    - Width: 104mm
    - Length: 264mm

    After reading through a good 100 pages, I've seen a good amount of debate on which size fits. I'm not too worried about Hiro/Olfe - I'll probably go with a 8UK. BUT, i am worried about New Rey. Is the New Rey last really that more narrow than the Olfe or Hiro? And if I do get a 8.5UK for the New Rey, will the extra length offset the added width? The Linea Maestro model I want only comes in New Rey and I don't want to pay extra for MTO...

    If anyone's interested, here are the shoes I'm looking at:

    http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=3966

    If everything goes well, I'll update when they arrive.

    You should NEVER buy new ray. Unless you really have abnormally thin feet.

    you can only go as this as olfe/hiro if you are an 9D in AE.

    New ray is closer to 9B in AE. (From what I hear)

    You are either an 8.0UK-olfe or an 8.5-UK olfe. (I perfer olfe over hiro its more sleak and euro)
    In a boot both would probably fit. But in an shoe you may want to chance it on the 8UK so you dont have heel slip.

    BTW your measurements look almost the same as mine.

    104X267mm and I bought an 7.5UK my first time. And it was very snug but not bad. I think 8UK in OLFE is right for those numbers.

    I think 8.5UK -OLFE would be too big. And DEFINELTY do not get the new ray.

    The ordering system probably messed up. Just keep emailing them until they reply.

    Ah alright thanks! Do you think it's worth doing an MTO for the Dark Brown LM naturcalfs? Basically, I'll be switching from a New Rey to an Olfe last. I'll probably change some others too, but that's the gist. Price wise, it would probably be upwards to $350, but that's essentially the same retail price as AE's

    Thank you to both of you for your complete and comprehensive responses.

    I have since decided to purchase the Loake Cannons, and I am currently in the process of ordering them.

    Thanks for the feedback! Well, that's what I had expected (and feared, unfortunately).
    I'll follow your advice to contact Luisa, but I will need the shoes in Mid-September, so I suppose it won't work out...

    Quote:the shoes are probably just produced from the factory. do you find it necessary to clean them already? How are the results? I only reno shoes that I suspect have been sitting on shevles for a bit ie., AE seconds.

    That's great. Will it show whether or not the shoes displayed are actually available in stock? Aside from quality control, this seems to be the leading cause of misunderstandings now - people ordering stuff from the website that you don't actually have (my last pair took two months, despite showing as in stock). Please tie your web ordering system to your stock system - nobody minds waiting a few weeks for their shoes, but it's so important to understand whether they are in stock or on order. It's just a simple matter of managing expectations, and will improve your reputation greatly.

    Hi mimo,

    Thank you very much for your comments!

    We understand that, and our goal is to have a completely updated stock displayed online, we still working on it. Currently we are asking 30 days to deliver the shoes since some sizes of the of the styles offered are not in stock, but nowadays, we are delivering most of the orders way before the requested 30 days. Said that, we understand that is not the most common way of operating online, but unfortunately is the one we can offer at the moment, but you can be sure we are working hard to improve it asap!

    Thanks again for your comments, we really appreciate them!

    Habit rather than necessity. For new shoes put a quick coat of reno or cream before I give them a more thorough wax polish.

    You could very easily add a bar coding system to real time track your inventory. Would cost you the price of a pair or two of shoes.
