PG never mentioned anything about JLParis. Can't settle on PR fees?

How Much a shoe, whether a wholecut or a loafer, will almost entirely, in my experience, depend on you :

How much 'step' you enforce into your step

&

How you lay your feet while at rest


If conscience enough, you can reduce creases significantly.

Are those boots comfortable?

 

I have some G & G Burnham and they are my most comfortable footwear.

most of these are "glued" / cemented on, not stitched unfortunately

What about the Playtime sneakers?

 

I am squeamish about paying $3K for shoes that cannot be re-soled.

I have to say I like the look of those shoes and socks with the white robes.

 

I suppose that when you wear robes one of the few ways to stand out is with great shoes. Excuse my ignorance if that is not the case.

I have four pairs of Berluti, 2 Leonard boots (one made as Special Order) purchased from Milan Boutique, a pair of Alessio and a Playtime sneakers both purchased in Faubourg St Honorè boutique.

Speaking about customer service, Berluti Milano is the worst boutique I have ever been. Almost all the SA are awful and especially the manager of the boutique is rude and ignorant.

Paris Faubourg St Honore SA are instead very helpful and kind especially Monsieur Cedric. He is very polite and professional.

Also Paris St Honorè btq has an own proper colorist while Milano btq does not have one (SA themselves makes the patina)...so the differences on the patina made by 2 stores are very noticeable.

Anyway the Customer Service of Berluti in general appears to be so so. After 10 times I wore my boots the zipper has broken and I have to wait almost 3 months to have a new pair! Yes, A NEW PAIR, because Berluti Atelier has broken my boot trying to fixing up it so they have to give me a new pair!

I had unfortunately other bad experiences happened in Milano boutique so I underline once again that is the worst boutique where I have have been.

I just bought my first pair of Berluti shoes on-line.
The soles show size 8 - will they fit my US 9 feet?
UK Size 8?
I could read through all these pages, but prefer quick help!

Thanks!
