Hey All,

Can anyone comment on how this Santoni Chelsea would fit? This is a UK 6. I have an EG (Kurt Geiger, Chelsea) UK 6E on the 202 last, AE Byron in 7D, AE Thayer 7D, AE Park Aves 7D

"Santoni

Chelsea Boot

First Super Castagna / 609

Goodyear Construction

Handmade in Italy to the highest standards of craftsmanship

Extraordinary calf leather learns the shape of your foot for a near-custom fit.

Brown Leather

Finest leather upper, lining and goodyear welted sole

SZ.: UK 6 / US 7 to 7.5

Outsole: 12" x 4.5""







Was thinking this would be my winter boot. Most likely to be worn with Jeans and Chinos, maybe wool dress pants.

Outsole: 12" x 4.5" - if that's not a typo, they will fit f-ing huge on you!

Size 6 in Santoni fam =US 8
However, this boot's outsole is way too long , so I expect this boot to fit more like US 8.5

I think you may be on as Santoni's have very elongated lasts. Did you try contacting the seller?

Looks like someone already asked him/her the Question....

"Q: \tAre you sure the measurements that you posted are accurate, 12" X 4.5"? These measuements seem very large, esp. the width, for a 6D Santoni shoe.

A: \tThey do run large"

So I assume the consensus - these will probably fit closer to a much larger size - ie 8/8.5 US?

"Caoutchouc" means "rubber" in French, and perhaps other languages as well. It is referring to the makeup of the sole and is not the name of the model.

Im a UK nine and most of my shoes are around 12" by 4.25" - perhaps the seller got his 9 upside down and these are a widish fitting UK 9 or EU 43.

Uk 9 is 9.5 or 10 US.

Ask for a photo of any text inside the shoe or on the box to clarify.
