    so i went on the japanese yahoo shopping area and found a bunch of butteros but all sizes 43 and below, i happen to be a 43.5 in buttero,

    what gives, do the japanese have small feet so they dont order anything in 43+?

    is there anyway to order one of the cool japanese butteros through any other site?

    I guess you are referring to the Buttero shoe brand (which is in fact Italian, although quite popular in Japan).

    Buttero runs big, I'm a 40 in most cases but had to pick a 39 when it came to this brand.

    To answer your question: the only shop that carries the brand online, as far as I know, is Por Vocacao: https://www.porvocacao.com/shop/brands/buttero/

    There's probably a good chance they don't have 43.5 over here, it's a 'big size' - not that there aren't Japanese dudes who dont take a 435, but its not common enough to sell. I can check and proxy the boots for you if you want.

    wow thank you, if you are looking for yourself and happen to see something that would be really cool. I assume you are in Japan? I visited tokyo a few years ago and loved it, would probably live there if i could

    Yeah I am here. What style boot are you looking for, if there is one in particular?

    yes i am interested primarily in the B2904/B2964 in black, 43.5, but may take the B1101 if those arent available.

    please dont go out of your way for me but if you happen to shop for yourself and notice something then cool :D

    Depends on shoe, but in Japan it's hard to find shoe sizes bigger than 43 or 44 depending on the shoe of your choice...

    Didn't call today, was a bit busy, but I will call Buttero Tokyo soon. Anybody else want an item check while I'm at it? You guys interested in the Japanese Butteros should look into Premiatas too, similar scenario as Buttero I think. They seem to have a lot of models here whereas Premiata doesn't really enjoy a lot of success in the US because nobody has the line.
