    Sorry I'm sort of new to non-sneaker shoes, but I'm wondering how would you wear these new MMMs?

    I quite fancy them.

    Hey Eck, what is the usual retail at Atelier for Augusta Backzips?

    Also, if Im at 47 in Guidi, is that just a straight 45 in Augusta?

    What is your US shoe size? Augusta sizing is either TTS or size down 1 depending on the last/toe box. Prices at Atelier are 2000-2250 usd depending on the euro.

    Quality is supposed to be really good- on sale now at Antonioli and Luisaviaroma too.


    I think the largest size offered by most JP stores in Buttero is going to be a 43 (not sure). The 43 is probably closer to a 44 or 44.5 anyways as Buttero runs big.

    ^^

    No- I'm saying most Japanese stores don't order anything larger than a Buttero 43 (some don't even order half sizes). Barneys in the USA buys a much larger range of sizes but only in a few boots. Sizing is the same for JP or USA.

    Do you know what boot you want? Maybe ask a proxy to look into it for you?

    I just saw this- I really don't recommend proxy Buttero in from JP unless they are a grail piece to you- you are going to end paying 70-80k yen and it that piece you are much better going though SZ's and Sufu's classifieds for used Guidi, Augusta, etc....
