Santoni Sizing - Shoes vs Boots

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I know there's a lot of info about Santoni sizing on here and I've long been aware that they tend to fit large, but I'm not sure how the boots compare to the shoes.

I would say that I'm a UK 9.5 - 10. I own shoes in both sizes which fit perfectly.

I own a pair of Santoni boots - fatte a mano range - in a size 9/43 and even these require thick socks to fit properly.

So my question: If I bought a pair of fatte a mano shoes in an 8.5/42.5 do you think they would fit or do the boots run even larger than the shoes?


These are the boots I own; currently on Yoox: http://cdn.yoox.biz/44/533/44420533te_14_f.jpg

I paid about £100 less and love 'em. I think they're worth the full Yoox price.

Thanks to anyone who can offer assistance!

Important additional info: would the same sizing advice follow for the Goodyear Santoni range?

I have a pair of Santoni FAM double monks
I am a 10.5-11uk generally (dependent on the last in question)

These for some reason are a 9.5 and they fit fine, maybe a bit narrower than I would have ideally liked, but have a fair bit of "wiggle" room in the toe box.

Thanks. This does suggest that I'd be fine with size 8.5. Crazy sizing.

Does anyone know of the 'Goodyear' fit like the FAM?

I bought these shoes from German ebay:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280951895784&ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:GB:3160

269 Euro plus 9.90 shipping. Approximately $350.

They appear to be the exact same pair which are $759 at Shop The Finest, with a claimed retail price of $1,900. How accurate that price is I don't know and if anyone can confirm I'd appreciate it.

I've had my eye on those for a while. Now I only hope they fit!

For what its worth, my FAM size 8.5 also measure 31,5 cm on the outersole, so exactly the same as these Goodyear. The FAM tends to be a bit more narrow though, especially at the toe box. In any case € 269 seems like a good deal to me. Goodyear welted Santoni's tend to start at around € 700 and up depending on the leather used and patina.

Thanks Wicky.

I imagine this would be a lower priced Goodyear shoe as it's suede. $1,900 seems way off.

I see you're normally a UK 9. I hope mine fit! The measurements suggest that they will.

Have seen the same line (not exact style) for full retail of 500-650 euro, not at all near the Shop the Finest retail claim.
