The Berluti shoe thread - Page 23

post #331 of 357
Looking for guidance about Berluti shoe last fit, more than UK/US conversion.

Help a brother out??

UK8 work for a typical US9D?
post #332 of 357
I would be careful.i don't own berluti but I am usually 10UK and when I tried the Alessandro at their store in Dubai I was a 13 (not sure if it US or UK). Kind of like Corthay where I am 12.5 (Corthay go by US)

I could read through all these pages, but prefer quick help!

Thanks!




Congratulations, I recognize this pair from TRR, good deal after promo code with credits.

 

Berluti's shoe size corresponds to UK size in length, some are tricky in width but not this model.

If you are regular US size 9, this pair will fit well.

Thanks for the help, yes with the discount they were $260
kinda hard to pass up, though Berluti NYC tells me it would
cost $380 for resole...but includes a "free" shoe shine!

The previous owner may have been harder on the toes.

Depending on how you walk, it costs less than $100 for them to replace just the heel.

 

My impression is that Berluti offers free servicing on all leather pieces regardless of where they are bought.

This has been the case for me since last year and I bring mine in all the time.

I go to Berluti CM and doubt their service differs among US locations.

 

If you walk in with your pair in their trees, they should give you a free shoe shine.

I would expect them to offer free dust bags and maybe a shoe box as well.

That's great to know. I'm not a fan of using inexpensive resole or heels on fine shoes and boots.
The $100 heel seems like a great worthwhile investment on these. They arrive Tuesday so we'll
see. Look great and pretty wearable even here in the midwest

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

 

Of course, in the end I brought some Playtimes....

You used to get a free second patina but never free soles.

 

I left half a dozen pairs for new soles when I was in Paris. Had to pay for them (a couple of hundred or so).

 

BTW whilst on the subject Gaziano & Girling charge 350 pounds for a new sole. Seems a  bit steep but they must take the whole bottom of the shoe off and start again.

Are any of your pairs in venezia with custom patina?

If so, would you mind sharing some pictures?

Mine are all "off the rack".

 

Though I do have a pair of Andy Loafers that were apparently a limited edition.

Ok. If it's not raining I will wear them tomorrow and put a photo up.

 

BTW, Aussies may be interested to know that Harrolds are meeting with Berluti to maybe bring them out here. I am in two minds. On the one hand it will make life easier if I want them. On the other, they won't be as uncommon here.

 

I agree more photos are needed. Come on everyone!

Anyone here have a positive experience with shoe stretching?
My UK8 are more like a US8.5 than US9....
