Lucky me, I was a Naked order as well! Classic white. They’re very nice.
They fit very snugly, I’m a bit worried they’re too tight. I’ll wear them around the house today and see how I get onBF1C5D57-E1CC-4D64-BFE2-A473C16302B3.jpeg2B6C11DB-EE38-46E9-9F32-BFF80C0C1CAE.jpeg23E4C4D3-0FB5-4761-85D4-65E53B7EFFF1.jpeg

How long is the naked going to be going on? I want to know when I have to decide by if I want a pair of these shoes, but want to also see in person pics first lol. Mainly eyeing the Anticato Grey, but white also looks nice in Kangaroo with gum sole

so current internal agreement is that Naked closes on the 18th of July.

We will be doing calls with each of our craftspeople to decide whether or not to extend it further, as ultimately, it is for them. We could start moving into a partial Naked where we highlight items made by some particular craftspeople who are struggling or facing more cancellations from bigger brands.

Alright, so I have time to decide then lol. I am only using cheap Club Monaco white leather sneakers which are great, but not the best quality so I want to see some in person pics before I decide. I like the look of the grey anticato, mainly to keep it cleaner looking longer, but may go classic with the white on white

Just got mine as well. White roos. The fit is good, leather is soft, supple, and a nice texture.

A little problem though.... the outside seam to the tongue seems to be cut way too close to the side panel. If I wiggle my toes a little you can peek right through to my foot. Even if I don't - this will bring stress to that part of the shoe.... I just wore it for a few mins now and the its already begun.

@ArchibaldRoh have you seen this stress point on any other material? Might just be a one off issue....

Do you have wider feet by any chance? Or did you disregard the sizing tool?
I don’t have wide feet that I know of, and I used the sizing tool, but I don’t think I’m a great barometer for sizing, I haven’t really got my sizing nailed down since starting to wear better quality shoes. For years I wore 12UK in everything (ie trainers and cheap, non GYW dress shoes for work) but there’s no way I am actually a 12. So I think I’m used to a roomy fit. I was actually between sizes on the sizing tool, and went for the bigger one. So maybe it is just my perception that these are snug.

That looks like a serious issue to me. I certainly hope its an isolated QC problem. I ordered the roos in grey.

Post pics when you get them, please! I am craving to see some grey roos in "real" pics and I guess you'll get yours before I do.

hi there, so the white kangaroo, in particular, is by far the softest material so the opening is a little more visible when the pair is not worn but given each of the uppers are hand-cut it might be to do with that, Orlando will be messaging you in private to see that it's a one-off as such.

Thanks, @ArchibaldRoh. Yea, the leather is positively buttery and luxurious.

But yes, I think someone was a little overzealous with the sheers that day. The pictures above are all with me wearing them - I'm no cobbler, but it might be a stitch placement issue. In any case... I'll wait for @OrlandoMo to message.

Thanks again for the speedy reply
