A favorite shoe in a high vamp version. We love the high vamp, particularly in patent - which holds it's shape beautifully. The higher rise has a different feel from the lower vamp Repettos. We love both - and love having the option of the higher rise that doesn't show any part of the toes. These feature a 1 cm leather heel and a white sheepskin insole. Sizing typically follows this pattern - US size 6 - 6.5 would wear a 37, a US size 7 - 7.5 would wear a 38, 8 - 8.5 would wear 39, 9 - 9.5 would wear 40, 10-10.5 would wear 41, 11 - 11.5 would wear a 42. Please note that with this new shipment comes new sizing recommendations than in the past. Repetto has adjusted their sizing a bit to be a little more true to European sizing. The size recommendations we have given above are our new recommendations to go by :)
Patent leather upper, white sheepskin insole, ecru twill cotton canvas lining, leather sole. Made and hand finished in France.
Repettos are a longtime favorite at our shop. We have carried them for many years and we wear them almost exclusively ourselves. They are incredibly well made - the method of stitching the sole into the upper is called stitch and return. This allows for the sole to be thicker than it looks- with a second thickness of sole inside the shoe. They are the most comfortable shoes we have ever worn, and the most classic and stylish - we swear by them.
