yeah i ordered from oki-ni in my usual size (i'm a 10.5-11, thought they were cp sole so i ordered a 43) and they were wearable but just slightly narrow and snug at the toe box in a 43. Made in portugal and identical to the Raf's I got over the summer in size. i'd say leather wise its better than pierre hardy and slightly better or comparable to common projects, but i don't find those to be all that great. I definitely prefer YSL as i feel those are comparable to balenciaga, a hair below quality of lanvin.
Again, they're fine and i think they're a much better and nicer alternative to chucks. I did get a couple of comments on them, people liked the way the leather looked, but the insole and inside of the shoe just felt pretty lackluster. I just don't like the way the leather creases and cracks almost instantly. The buckle is annoying too, but removable through the slit.
