The perfect day-to-night lace-up
After googling 'Italian-made shoes', I came across Habbot. I hadn't heard of them before, and I was looking for a very particular shoe: the perfect lace-up. I was happy to pay a higher price for something well made and long lasting as I've bought too many poorly made shoes in the past. I really wanted this purchase to stick.
After browsing every style, I came across these. The Lazio. Wow. They are amazing. I was in love with them at first site. So I went to order them, and heart-breakingly my usual size (an AU 9/ EU 40), was out of stock. Some lucky person had snagged the last size before me and I was devastated. I emailed the Habbot team and asked about this shoe and if they'd be restocked. They told me they wouldn't as they're a seasonal style. Then, I had a brain wave and decided to check the size guide on a whim.
It turns out that in Habbot sizes, a 39 is a 8.5, which is my real shoe size but I have been so used to needing to size up because of the half size, that I automatically always get a 40/ 9. The 39 was in stock and it arrived quickly. The Lazio is even more beautiful in person. And the size is perfect. They are comfortable underfoot straight away - the leather is stiff because of the quality so I'm still breaking them in (worn them around 6 times), but I couldn't be happier.
Thank you Habbot for making a high quality, stylish shoe that I will wear everyday and every night for many years to come.
