Great shoes, but one wish….

Love the shoes—well made, cute and comfy. The only problem is the insole. Wish it had more cushion & better arch support, as I’m on my feet all day.

Amazing shoes

This is my third set (of three) and purchase from Patos. Amazing shoes. Will buy again when necessary.


I’m so glad to hear that, Brian! It’s great to have you as part of the PATOS family.

I LOVE this shoe!

This shoe is fabulous! It fits perfectly, is so comfortable, and makes a "WOW" statement. Even better, my purchase helps to provide sustainable employment for the artists in Latin America. I am definitely going to buy more!!!

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.
