Small Company, Big Time SHOES

As I wake up in the morning and perform my daily routine, brushing my teeth, combing my hair, etc., I then proceed to downstairs to crack some eggs over the skillet. I like them over easy. Then I put my cloths on. As you can see I treat my body well. The last step before leaving my home it to treat my feet with some love. There is no better way to do this than lacing up a pair of Patos’s PrimeroQ. If your a sock guy or you like to get a bit spicy and go without, Pato’s shoes encompass your feet in everlasting comfort. If you go out at night and get your white leather shoes a bit dirty, a simple wet cloth rubs off the nights residue. In all honesty these shoes are pretty amazing. Built to last, easy to clean, and somehow they don’t smell after I’ve worn them without socks like 30 times. I can’t say that about my Nikes.

I have now had my Patos for ~2 months, and the true test of their comfort and versatility came during my 10 day safari in Tanzania. Other than my flip flops those were the only shoes i took, and they were comfortable for hours of game viewing, walking and just general wearing. Truly a well-designed shoe and stylish to boot!

My Most Worn Shoes!

When I first got my Patos, I was worried that they were a little small, but they broke in and stretched out after a couple of days. Now mine are super comfortable, and I can wear them all day. They've quickly become my most worn pair of shoes (used to be green Stan Smiths), and they look great with either jeans or shorts. Patos are great for your self-confidence too - people will be complimenting you all the time on your shoes!

Love these <3

They're comfortable and the fabric seems like it will last. They also stand out as very unique with the cloth on the back and leather tongue patch.

Great shoes, so stylish!

I'm incredibly satisfied with my Patos. I would recommend them for anyone.

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.
