These shoes are handmade, that means that in the beginning the leather will be a little stiff, and possibly tight on the sides of your foot, that is a good thing! Within a week or so of wearing these boots the leather is going to meld to the shape of your foot. You want it to be a little snug in the beginning so that it can wear in just right. The wear in period on these isn't very long either, a week of everyday wear will have them hugging your feet like your favorite pair of beat up boots.
We have essentially made these boots to be half size inclusive, what does that mean? We go off of european sizing, a men's 10 for instance is more of a 43-44 for us, the exact conversion varies depending upon who you ask, so we designed our soles to be cut to median sizes that have the ability of accommodating both even sizes and half sizes comfortably. The leathers ability to take the shape of your foot is what makes this possible. If you're skeptical about the fit, you can always buy them and as long as you don't wear them outside (and the inner isn't discolored from obvious wear), return them if the fit isn't right.
Understand, these are traditional handmade boots, they are not modern footwear, you will need to break them in, but once you do they'll be your new best friend, you're going to look incredible.
Once you place your order it takes about 2-3 days to start on production and 3-4 weeks to complete. For custom items we try to maintain a lead time of no longer than four weeks, however, we also make your items in the best way possible with the most quality control we can. This means that sometimes there are time frame delays, and extended wait times for customs, however, this is because we strive to create excellent quality handmade goods and don’t rush our process.
Once your custom order is completed and on its way to you, you will receive an email confirmation with an ETA and tracking number.
