Amazing Shoes!

These are some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. The buying experience was perfect. And knowing that I helped a local artisan was the icing on the cake. I highly recommend!

Besides the obvious aesthetic appeal of the shoes and its signature/authentic heel textile, Patos are INCREDIBLY comfortable. They really do mold to your foot. The fit is perfectly snug. I've never felt so comfortable in a shoe. Patos made me think I had done shoe-shopping wrong my whole life! Get yourself a pair now!

Amazing product

I bought these because I thought they looked great, which they do, but I never would have expected them to be so comfortable and durable

leather labels bled

these were great for the first two weeks! great fit, seemingly high quality. But they got wet in the rain one day and the dye in the leather bled all over the laces and tongue of both (white) sneakers. For canvas sneakers at such a high cost, I expected them to hold up better and not get ruined by water (water!!)




I'm so sorry to hear that this happened! We have not heard about this happening before, and want to help get this issue figured out as quickly as possible. I will reach out right away. Have a wonderful week!

Better than expected

Comfy, easy to match, and unique. More than I hoped for. :)

PATOS Shoes sizing chart

Sizing notes 

Our shoes are made in EU sizes. Use our size chart to find which EU size you are based on your US size. If you already know your EU size, select that one.

How PATOS sizes run: PATOS are slightly narrow and run true to size. If you don't have wide feet, select the size that you normally wear.

If you wear a half size: If you wear a half size, and don't have wide feet, round up to the next size. For example, if you have narrow feet and wear US 7.5, your best fit is likely an 8.

If you have wide feet: If you have wide feet, we suggest buying an entire size up. For example, if you typically wear 7, you should probably get an 8.

If you have wide feet and wear a half size: If you have wide feet and wear a half size, you should round up 1.5 sizes. For example, if you wear 7.5 and have wide feet, we suggest ordering size 9.

If you wear a number of different sizes: If, for example, you wear a 7 in some brands and 8 in others and don't know which one to base your size off of, you should probably go with the larger size.
