    I just pruchased a pair of Buttero Tanino, Overall they look fine until you closely at the leather which is very wrinkled in a couple of place. Maybe a characteristic of calf leather?

    have a pair of black butteri high top sneakers / leather is still in great condition / however / the soles stiching has come undone in the toe box area / cant say its butteros fault / so watever

    have only had them for two years btw
    but I would still recommend them
    took a long time to break in
    but they r dam comfortable now
    and look way better than a two yr old vans would
    so to each their own

    Ehh but they will sooner or later be like that anyway. That's what leather does

    +1. The wrinkly areas on your Butteros, @ike_hiking_boots, look exactly like the leather of my CP Achilles after a few weeks of wear.

    I am a little shocked though at all the bad experience people here have had with Buttero. I guess it's not so bad then the pair I was watching on Yoox sold out a few days ago. So far I only have a pair of woven-leather slip-ons, but haven't worn them a lot so too early to say.

    Does Buttero still make Dior Homme these days? I have a pair of DH formal derbies the soles of which have been wearing faster than I would like for what DH charges.

    There's a difference between creasing the leather through wear and leather with creasing already in.

    My Feit lows, highs and bio trainers the leather is ALL perfect - not a crease to be seen.

    I have CP Achilles and they don't have creases like the Buttero - after a few weeks of wear!

    The grain on Butteros is not the best, ime. I typically buy their suede boots, which don't have the same issue. I just like suede more.

    Comparing them to Common Projects is not really and apples to apples comparison. Butteros are unlined and use a thick calf or cow leather. Common Projects use a thin corrected grain leather and are lined.

    I have 2 pairs of Buttero and not really had a problem with them so far. However, the rubber sole seems to be pretty soft and doesn't withstand a lot?

    Does someone have both Buttero Taninos and CP's who could tell me how those 2 shoes' soles compare?

    The soles are both margom serena soles. They are identical if they are the same color.

    I understand that better now. It makes sense for business but I guess it's definitely different when it's personal.

    Update:

    I took my Buttero sneakers to a local shoe repair business. They did a wonderful job repairing my sneakers. The owner was able to patch in a piece of leather to shore up the weak areas. I'm 100% satisfied and my sneakers actually fit better. I'll post photos when I can.

    Anyone have experience with Buttero Tanino half sizes?

    I ordered a 43 and a 43.5 and I can't see any difference between them - they even both use the same size 43 insole.

    Maybe the half size option is just a marketing thing?

    The new shoes are perfect BTW, no wrinkles.
