Up to 50% off at Cultizm.

I picked up a pair of Buttero chukka sneakers. If you want sneakers, and the leather is your focus, you can't do better than Buttero, unless maybe if you go to the Ann Demeulemeester range.

^ very nice. I've been considering grabbing a pair for a while now. How's the fit size wise? Could you compare to the usual suspects.... CP, MMM, Lanvin, Chucks etc.?
post #27499 of 38070
I think the consensus is sizing down one (roughly the equivalent of CP).
post #27500 of 38070

Buttero are on the same sole as CP. Note, it's the same sole as used on the Tournament Low and Achilles, not the Summer Perforated which uses a thinner sole.

 

Also important to note is that they are a very narrow shoe. So while I agree with sizing down on some models, I don't think it is applied across the board if you have a wide foot.

 

As an example for me;

 

Alden 8.5D

Nike 9

CP (Tournament Low Suede) 41 (8)

CP (Chukka) 42 (9) - these are a little long, but any smaller and they would be too narrow

 

I've only ever bought one pair of Achilles and I had to return them. They were a size 41 and tore my heel up. 

 

I put this down to the fact that they are padded considerably and the Tournament Low/Chukka are not padded.

 

 

 

With the referral earlier from LA guy to the Cultizm sale, I just snapped up these in 41.5.

As they're also not padded, I expect they should fit nicely in a half size. Awesome for $170 AUD landed.

the buttero soles have more room in the toe area because it does not taper off as hard a s the cps, you can size down 0.5 from your cp size if you can't find your cp size, but cp size would be fine too

I wear the same size as in CPs, and find Butteros extremely comfortable. That said, by feet are so beat up from decades (holy cow, literally now), of running, both short and long distance, backcountry hiking, and kickboxing, that seriously, unless my toes are actually ramming up against the shoe, or squeezing so hard on my wider than usual forefoot that they actually start to go numb, I find shoes reasonably comfortable.

Is the men's half yearly sale at Nordstrom different from the one they have in July? I was hoping to get some AE Strands on sale this year but I guess they don't have them?

No its the same. The longer it it, bigger the discount. July is when the biggest discounts happen.

Oooh okay thanks! I'm trying to buy some clothes for work like some dress shirts, pants, belts.. does that mean I should wait until July for bigger discounts?

 

Any recommendations for business casual basics? I literally need almost everything from shoes, pants, belts.. I started work recently and I need to build my business wardrobe.. the Nordstrom sales list is HUGE.

 

There seems to be a lot of sales going on everywhere in general..

Nope.

The half yearly sale going on now is when the past season stuff is marked down. This is when you're much more likely to find SF Approved items. Believe it or not, some Nordstroms carry RO, Lanvin, Marni, Michael Bastian, APC, etc.

The July sale is the yearly anniversary sale when new season stuff goes on sale. Most of the new stuff is kinda crappy store label items or brand like North Face, etc. But if you're looking for non closeout Allen Edmonds it's worth looking. They do pre-sale for things. I forgot the exact date, but I think an SA told me pre-sale starts July 5th.

It is true however that stuff from the half yearly sale will still be around during the Anniversary sale and will be reaching its lowest price before being shipped off to the Rack where it oddly seems to cost more.
