    Hello,

    For Yoox's men's shoes is the US size correct to standard men's sizes? I see a size 9 but am not sure if it turns out to be a 10 or 9.5 etc. Thank you.

    I find that the listed size is the British/Euro size plus one. So they run small - about a half size small. If they list as a 12 then its more like an 11 1/2.

    Thank you.

    It also strikes me that Yoox contains a variety of fairly obscure European brands. Not cult/niche brands per se but just unknown.

    Does anybody know of the shoe brand FRANCESCHETTI ?

    Franschetti shoes are pretty good quality, not top-tier but not bad either. Some of their styles aren't bad to look at.

    What other better known brands would you compare them with?

    Maybe a bit nicer than Ferragamo, Magli etc. Although don't consider my opinion an expert one - mostly it is based on pictures. I've only seen a couple of pairs in person.
