to all who have ordered or intend to order, what colors did you choose? There are so many great choices that I’m having trouble deciding!
Ordered, Anticato w/gum sole, Gray Kangaroo w/gum sole. Contemplating ordering the green, and adding the gum sole, but not sure if the size I’ve taken on the first two is correct, so....torn as to whether I want to take a chance on a special makeup.

Seeing "Anticato" mentioned a few times throughout the thread without a specific color. Did Anticato use to refer to one of the specific colors or is that just an oversight?

Anticato is what we call the hand-done colours. So you have anticato bordeaux, blue, green, sienna and tan.
For most of the anticato colours, you start with a crust calfskin (what you see named sand) and colour it using a special dye. Pulling from the site, to achieve the anticato effect, the leather is hand-coloured and polished for a period of 75 minutes by a master.

I think in each mention, users are talking about their choice of anticato colour or referencing the Anticato Siennna with Gum soles or Anticato Tan with Gum Soles

Mentioned earlier, but I order all black calf & anticato bordeaux. I am considering switching the all black to black calf w/ white sole. 🤔

All black is a classic. I tried avoiding them as I have it in the Ghirlandina but decided they really do fit with just about any work or evening wear.

I know this sounds weird but I was thinking of a black with gum sole as another option.
Black with white also very nice although I think I would prefer that on the v5 Ghirlandina.

My thoughts exactly when I ordered the all black - its classic. Black with gum or dark navy would be great too..how dark is the anticato blue?

If SF-02 comes out in all black might have to kop that too.

I apologize for bringing up sizing again, but I'm still somewhat confused. According to the conversion table I would be a 42 based on my measurement. I haven't work a 42 since my feet "grew up" a long time ago. I'm usually a 43 or 44, for example in Butteros. How do Butteros compare? Thanks?

PS I know there's free returns, but of course I would rather avoid that even ifthe savings don't benefit me.

PPS: What about exchanges for the custom
