Frequently Asked Questions
How long is an item restocked?
There are no specific dates for the arrival of new stocks. Customers can opt to sign-up for the newsletter for updates on new arrivals before public announcements are made. Restocks requests for unavailable items can also be made here.
What do I get when I sign up for our newsletter?
We send out newsletters 1-3 times a month featuring curated style guides, private sales, early access to new arrivals, or anything that inspires the team.
What leather does andanté use for its products?
Andanté uses 100% full grain leather—highest quality of leather there is—for its beauty and durability.
How do I know my size?
To find your perfect fit, we recommend measuring your foot first (see our 3-step measuring guide) and checking your corresponding shoe size here.
Please note that some styles require sizing up due to their narrow nature.
If you need additional assistance, please contact us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why are the color of my shoes slightly different from the pictures online?
Andanté uses genuine cow leather which can cause a slight variation in color as each hide absorbs dye differently. Each pair is handcrafted by seasoned shoemakers and has its own individual characteristics.
Are your shoes comfortable? How long does it take to break in?
A high quality pair of leather shoes will get more comfortable as you use them. Depending on your feet, it usually takes around 2 weeks of continued use to break-in.
If your pair hurts, we recommend to walk the pair around with socks first. The more you use them, the more they soften mold into your feet.
Read more about our break-in process here.
Do you have a physical store?
andanté does not have a physical store and only operates through the website. However, select andanté products are currently available at our stockists in Sydney and Manila.
