Sturdy and great quality, but be sizing aware
on 9 September 2015
Geox J Savage are lovely and high quality shoes, but not as generous sizing as expected. The sizing chart is confusing to me. I ordered 11.5 which is EU 30 and the fit is the same as Clarks 11.5 EU 29. Next size up in Geox is 12.5 EU 31, which theoretically would be far too big, but after trying on the size ordered, I think it would be an equivalent of 12 in Clarks. My son has H fit in Clarks, so I wanted to go a half size up in Geox, but it turns out they are, as mentioned above, the same as Clarks in length, but not as wide. They actually narrow down on the front, so I don't expect the purchased size to last long. Once you get a feel of the shoe though, you know better what to order next time. They are lovely quality and are quite deep, whereas Clarks I think are shallower. That depth must feel comfortable and gives better support around the ankles. My son loves them and says they fit, so I'm not going to question the width until he starts to complain. The sole is breathable, covered in multiple holes which is nice, but the sole does collect the dirt more (play dough and other unwanted natural waste). Overall I thing they are great and comfortable, but would think twice about the sizing - don't fully believe the size chart with EU measures, 11.5 Geox is 11.5 you know from Clarks.
