    You pay in full when you order.

    I guess the question is whether I'll like the cherry shell color then. It is tempting

    The cherry cordovan looks like a great color. Almost has a museum finish. I have a pair coming this week and i will definitely post some pics but im sure these will sell out quickly. Worse case I'm sure you would be able to sell them and recoup your money if the color is not to your liking. Good luck.

    Cherry boots look tempting but with a delivery date so close to the summer months, the boots won't get much use.

    Can anyone help me with an Allen Edmonds to Meermin size/last conversion?

    I run a 10.5B or C in the AE 5-65 last (PA, strand etc.).

    Imagine I will need something in Meermin's New Rey or Olfe lasts, but I'm worried that even then they won't be narrow enough...

    Cheers

    Happy to receive 3 pairs of new shoes in a day. More happy to receive the Meermin pair with no visual defects upon initial check. This pair can serve as my workhorse!!!

    Just to share. Spent 3 weeks from ordering to receipt.

    Hey everybody,

    Have a Meermin noob question. Do you guys go a half size or full size down from your US size? That is, if you're a 9US, do you order 8UK in Merrmin? Or 8.5?

    For point of reference, I wear 8UK in Carmina simpson and 7.5 UK in C&J.

    Thanks!

    I think just like any other brands it depends on the last. I think generally I'm at least 1.5 down from my U.S. Brannock size. I am typically US 9D in AEs, 8UK in C&J 224 and 325, US 8.5D in Marlow Pennies and Wingtips.

    Here is my experience when they visited NY.

    Ama - UK7.5E heel slip
    Hiro - UK 7.5E, fits well
    Roi - 7.5E loose all over
    New Rey - 7.5E fits good, but too pointy

    I just bought my first pair of meermin dark brown calf oxfords. Im kind of new to dress shoes. Should I immediately get some shoe trees for them? and what about waxes and creams for a dark brown calf?

    Would anyone with a pair of Hiro lasted shoes in size 7.5 or 8 UK be willing to provide outsole and insole measurements? I want to make sure that I am choosing the right size on a purchase- according to Meermin's provided measurements, a pair of shoes on the Hiro last in 8 UK would be 11.7 inch outsole and 11 inch insole, which is approximately equal length to my Carminas on Detroit last in size 7 UK. It doesn't make sense that 7 UK Carmina should equal 8 UK Meermin in length, so I was hoping someone could help shed light on the situation.

    Yes to shoe trees. Saphir for polish and cream. You can get dark brown or neutral

    Wore them today, aside from the sole slipping all over the carpet, no sound at all. Need to break in the sole again, but pretty satisfied.

    Some photos...

    Sole is made in Italy FWIW and the half heel is vibram. Overall, very clean job. The shoes are 1.5 years old.

    (The carpet is really old :hide:)

    I wouldn't really recommend judging a shoe size based on outsole measurements (or insole for that matter), as they very much depend on the last. What I would suggest you do is measure your foot length (stand on a piece of paper, thin/no socks, heel to wall, draw a line at your toes, measure) and compare it to the foot measurements Meermin gave you.

    Hiro:
    L 294 mm shoe outsole 7.5UK
    W 104 mm shoe outsole 7.5UK
    L 276 mm last insole 7.5UK
    W 099 mm last insole 7.5UK
    Foot 25.8 cm 7.5UK

    Shoe length increases about 4 mm per half size so you can go from there.

    Thanks for the advice! I measure almost 26 cm long in dress socks at the end of the day. Do you think that an 8 UK in Hiro is going to be too long? I could fit into 7.5 but I think the width would be problematic, as my foot width is about 96mm and I like the shoe to have a small amount of wiggle room, but 7.5 shows 99mm insole width.

    I'm almost exactly the same size as you and wear a 7.5 UK in Hiro.

    About Hiro: this is a strange last. My longest foot is 27,7cm. I have boots in size 7,5 (which could be a bit longer) and one pair in 8,5. I ordered Hiro boots in 7,5 / 8,5 and 9. All of them were too short.
    So now I exchanged them to size 9,5 which seems ridiculous to me. But I guess the numbers don't matter, only the proper fit.
    So I strongly suggest sizing up with Hiro.
