Sizing recommendations

El PrimeroQ (Leather) tends to run small. If you know your EU size, pick that. Otherwise, choose your typical US size, but err on the bigger side.

For instance, if you wear a US 7.5, you should get a US 8. If you have wide feet, you should should order a full size up. See our size guide or live chat us with questions:

Awesome shoes, great story, tons of personality

So many people have asked me about my Patos, and it's always an opportunity to tell them the story behind these shoes. The quality is solid, and they feel very comfortable once they're worn in (and are easy to clean too). Definitely made a good choice on these!!

Nicole Galaz

Proud to be wearing these

Thank you for the most comfortable shoes ever. I'm usually a size 9, but I went up to size 10. They safely made to Australia. A bit late, but never disappointed. Saving up for my next order!

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.
