One of the reasons I don't think my. Buttero make a good sizing reference is that they are unlined with no padding which makes them feel larger than they really are. Their USP is the thick veg tan leather that they personally source or are involved in the tanning process.

I am taking the SF-01 in my Pantofola Doro sizing, at least the made in Italy Pdos, the Portugal ones feel a size smaller.

I agree with the assessment that made in Italy does not guarantee quality. Golden goose shoes didn't last me more than a year.
That is crazy had no idea pdo made some product in.Portugal

I'm trying to buy a pair of white-white, but just noticed the price gap, 148 in USD and 139 GBP? i would assume something like 119 GBP maybe? For the record, I'm in China
Hi, I think China is localized if I'm not wrong? The price gap works in favour of the US as they have different taxes Anda lower de-minimas value. If you like you can check out from the hong Kong site and request customer service to route your shipment

I just went to the site directly thru your link which led me to US, and when i checked out, it led me to UK site with GBP currency. And i just tried the HK site, it still led me to UK site when i checked out. Where do you ship out the shoes despite the different country site?

Hi sorry I didn't complete my message to you, what I have suggested is a hack as any non-localized country (in this case China) incurs substantially higher costs of delivery, we use the UK price as the base and it all evens out (we have different deals for shipping, etc for different countries, the US is our biggest market so obviously we have best terms when it comes to logistics, etc there).

The trick is if you fill up all the address as normal and leave country as Hong Kong, then email customer service and let them know. This is something I shouldn't be advising but what the heck.

Thank you for prompt feedback. Now i see the trick, and let's keep it between us. LOL

Literally just saw this on the front page and ordered the White Sole w/ White Kangaroo Upper. Crazy because I was looking for Common Projects and these look like an even better alternative not because of the similarity and price but because of the silhouette but your interaction with the community and the transparency.

Super excited to receive these in April!
