GMTO means 'Group Made To Order'. That means at least 6 orders of a particular model need to be ordered to meet minimum production requirements (i.e. crowdfund) and thus be able to waive the Made to Order fee and only charge you as a production model. However, GMTO's are treated as an MTO and are non-refundable/non-exchangeable.
If the GMTO does not reach the minimum pairs required to make a production order, we shall refund the money you paid at the end of the GMTO period.
We continue to offer your choice of last and heel style (straight or pitched) on your GMTO order. Please consult our last information page here for details on last options, and click here to see all lasts side-by-side. For straight/pitched heel comparisons, see the photo here.
All GMTO orders are taken as 50% deposits on the full retail price. Final balance due prior to shipment of shoes. Shipping fees will be charged alongside the final balance payment. Shipping fees vary by destination: Please consult this page to confirm what your shipping fee will be.
Deposits can be placed through October 3rd. Production will begin in October, and it will take approximately 4 months for pairs to arrive to us. The final estimate for production time is about 4 months from early October: Expect your pairs in late winter.
