    — The leather straps should start off nice and firm across the foot, as they will relax and mould to your foot with wear
    — The buckle should fit on the first or second hole to begin with, so that you can tighten it further as the leather relaxes
    — Our footwear is in a standard width of a C fitting, which is wider than the usual stander width (B fitting)
    — We usually recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes, unless you have a very wide foot.

  • Fabrication & Care

    Please note that our Cicada Platforms are carried over seasonally, so some leather variations can occur between sizes.
