This is spot on?

If 42 is for 10, 41 would be for 9, and if I understand correctly your toes don't reach the toe box. Sounds about right.
I always thought 41 was 8 and 42 was 9?

Buttero is generally sized down one, like on the sneakers and Floyd's. I wear a size 42 Buttero Floyd for a size 10D US foot.

I was saying that for certain models that have a strong taper at the toe like the Quentin, to only go down one half or not size down at all. Seems like what you're saying is confirming my advice (and that of the thread).

Question for the collective wisdom of you Buttero wearers. I wore my Taninos on my walk to work yesterday and ended up with a massive blister on my heel. I love my Taninos— I have three pair-- and always felt I had sized correctly. Now I am doubting. But my toes in front feel fine...they are not jammed. In fact, normally the whole fit feels fantastic, though I admit they are not easy to get in to. So maybe the size is right and there is some other issue? Is it the stiffness of the leather? Thoughts?

Hey gang, after all of the Quentin talk, I brought out my cigar brown suede Quentins to wear again after their winter break, and decided they were too tight.

Size is 42.5, fits a US 10D or even 10E since they're fairly generous in the width.

Wore them twice, for real. Just too tight for me as a 10.5 now.

Let me know if you want them before they go to ebay.

if the only comfort issue is the heel then you probably sized them ok. Could certainly be a leather stiffness issue. try working the leather a little and moisturizing the inside of the heel area. Also make sure that whatever socks you wear with them aren’t wearing thin.
