    Did you give the suede a brushing? That might help with any nap/texture issues you’re having. I have Yanko suede shoes and loafers and no issues with the nap. The suede is nice and soft.

    So just received a pair of penny loafers in the 955 last, and I sized down half from my usual UK6 (I have a pair of austerity brogues) and the heel slip is still pretty bad.

    Here's a photo of the gap witb my foot pushed up to the front:

    Should I size down more? Or should I just attach a heel grip? Its about a half a finger's width at the back.

    Oh and I got them from @Skolyx and I'm really happy, they ship things out super quick!

    Do you have low insteps? Heel slippery is better solved by tongue pad than heel grips

    I know your feeling; loafers are very tought to get the right measurement; and even more when suede comes, I would personally recommend you to feel a little pressure on your feet, neither pain or loose on the heel when walking, note that suede always streches a lot

    I have some pair of Yankos and I was wondering if anyone know where they have their factory, I assume that they are a Spanish brand since 1890 but I do not spotted any statement whether the factory is in Spain, Europe or Overseas. Thanks in advance I was just curious

    That seems like a whole size difference; try half or maybe even a size down

    To this day, I still haven't purchased a pair of Yanko. I was wavering between Skolyx and Patine last year. The Black Friday sales make it very attractive, though my wallet keeps complaining about losing "e-weight".

    I saw that, but you know what...bad timing. I already purchased a pair of Patine's own branded boots! Incredible value, although a bit upset i missed out on the 25% discount. Oh well, still had to go over the threshold for free shipping anyways!

    I went directly to Yanko's factory in Inca and was fortunate to meet the logistics manager Francesco and the factory employees there. I can't believe how nice they were throughout the whole visit. Amazing hospitality.

    Picked up 3 pairs:
    Black swept-back single monk on 962 last, size UK 6
    Testa de moro balmoral oxford on 915 last, size UK 6.5 - factory 2nds
    Crust leather adelaide oxford on 915 last, size UK 6.5 - factory 2nds

    PS. I never knew "Yanko" is Polish for the Spanish name Juan. Thanks to Francesco for clarifying that!
