It's not only the dress shoes but also the Feit and Buttero sneakers

Anyway, I'll check on the AE and if it's not a US 9/9.5 bug you again. Thank you!

27.2 cm is a firm 42, in fact you have quite the way to go to reach the 43 from a measurement standpoint.

I am just really thrown off as all the other dress shoes are coming in at 43/43.5 so yes the AE would provide a lot more clarity.
If it is an AllenEdmonds US 9/9.5 I would be convinced on the 42.
AE 9.5 is Archibald 42? My self-measurement of 10.25 inches seems to indicate 43.

I only have funds for one pair.
Torn between the grey roo and all black......

BTW i only have Aldens to give as an example.
I wear a US8 with E-width.
I have wide n flat Asian feet with high instep.
Haven't gone around to buying a tape to measure my feet yet.

To add to the confusion: just checked my Allen Edmonds: they are a 10 after all...

Haha I really should do the size advice privately as one person's might confuse another. Either way every order will go through a size check.

Self measurement is more important so please follow that, 10.25 inches is 26.003cm which the size guide would call an Archibald 40.... Was there a typo in your post?

Allen Edmonds (or Church's) US 9/9.5 is an Allen Edmonds (or Church's) UK 8/8.5 which is generally an Archibald 42 for sneakers.

So happy to move this to private messages... I think best thing to do is to measure both feet again whilst standing up and having someone else do the marking carefully.

We will get there. I know it's frustrating.

I have just seen the Buttero sneakers use a margom sole and look like they have quite thin uppers. If your size is a 43 there then everything (including the Allen Edmonds US 10) points towards a 43 aside from the measurement.

Aldens US 8 is an Aldens UK 7 which is an Archibald 41 for sneakers. The width should be accommodated.

However please do find a way to measure to confirm.

I will look into having a printable scale uploaded onto the website

A printable scale would be, stupid as it may sound, very reassuring! :p Thanks

Hello everyone... couple of updates:

In just a few minutes we will have pictures available for the SF-01 custom option. 1 view of every colour so you don't have to imagine it and can simply eyeball what it looks like more or less.

We are then completing the printable size guide and will be testing it so that will go up when ready.


P.S Black and Gum, White and Black, Anticato Tan and Blue, Anticato Blue and Gum, Anticato Green and Black, Anticato Green and Gum (@EgoCamisas), Anticato Bordeaux and Gum, all the suedes and Gum :bounce2:
