The usual production time is about 4-6 weeks. Remember that you are purchasing a made-to-order pair of shoes, that is, your pair is not produced in advance, every part of it will be hand-crafted, exclusively for you, after submitting your order. From start (leather hand cutting) to finish (sole stitching).
Also, bear in mind that some customizations and artisan methods (i.e Patina Finishing) are more time consuming than others. If you customize your order with them, we might exceed the standard manufacturing time.
We will do our best to fulfill the above production time for all the orders, however, as a hand-made production process, our production line is subject to issues which are out of our control. Issues like stains or broken pairs while moulding the shoes, forces us to start the manufacturing process from the beginning.
In those rare cases, we promise to keep you informed , and try to re-manufacture the broken pair as soon as possible.
On the unlikely event of not being able to produce your pair again from the beginning (i.e. Out of stock of a certain material) we will contact you immediately and offer an exchange or a full refund
Since this a made-to-order service, we do not allow to cancel or modify an order which has been placed and paid on our systems, since it will be automatically sent to production right away after the payment.

After placing an order and submitting the payment, the order is automatically launched to production on the factory. Raw leather is hand-cut during the first 48 hours, and sole unit also starts to be manufactured. Production process continues until the pair is finished after 3-5 weeks.
If you want to cancel an order that has already started production, you can still do it, however, bear in mind that there is a cancellation fee of 50 EUR, to account for used materials and labour work.
