Santoni fit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me how true-to-size Santoni shoes fit? My cousin in New York has a beautiful pair of loafers in size 10.5D, but I don't know whether they're going to be too small. I don't want to waste the cost of shipping if they're not going to work. This has been my experience in sizing (obviously, even across the same brand, fit varies by last model): Sutor Mantellassi: 10.5 is too small Gucci: 10.5 is consistently perfect Bally: 10.5 is a hair too small, but far better than 11 Fratelli Rossetti: 10.5 is huge A. Testoni: 10.5 is about right Ferragamo: 10.5 is usually too small, 11 is usually right Mezlan: 10.5 is a touch too small, 11 is a touch too big Bruno Magli: 11 is too big, huge in a loafer Any sense of how likely it is that a 10.5 Santoni loafer will fit me?

I would think a Mantellassi would be like a Testoni and is certainly larger than a Bally. They are grest shoes, so grab them if you can.

Santoni, just like everyone else, uses a lot of different lasts, and each of those lasts will fit differently. Which model loafer are you looking at?

It's a double-monk strap - therefore either the Alfred or the Dunham. I'm not sure which. Does that help?

Mantellassi runs small. Santoni is pretty true to size (meaning they don't run really small or large compared to other brands.)

Santoni fit also depends on the "quality" of the shoe. If it is the tan "Andrea Santoni fatte a mano" in script going around the heel, then I agree with Andrew. But if it is the orange socked version, then that fits a touch smaller. But then again it depends on the last. Btw: I never heard a monk strap being referred to as a loafer, i.e: Originally posted by Mike F:

I've tried Alfred on before. It's true to size, although it has a low toe box that may be problematic if your big toe is kind of upturned like mine is. Don't know about the Dunham.

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

I know, I'm strange - I guess it stems from my perception that the strap is all but useless (like a horsebit&#33 on most monkstraps.
