On the website www.giordanotorresi.com it is possible to buy footwear belonging to two different lines: New Classics and Unique. On the website you can also register to participate in private events, where Clients can order bespoke shoes (Your Dream).
The styles of the line Unique can be personalised.
Once chosen the style among different types present on the website, you can proceed with the style personalisation through a 3D configurator completing three different steps:
STEP 01 "Materials and colours": choose the shoe materials and colours.
STEP 02 "Add your initials":it is possible to enhance the product with initials heat engraved on the outer sole; the selection of the shoe size is facilitated by an accurate international size guide.
STEP 03 "Complete the purchase": once the personalisation of the shoe has been completed, the Buyer will proceed with the order confirmation and will receive all the information and specifications necessary to conclude the purchase, including the reception of the test pair to confirm the selected size.
During the configuration process, it is possible to request further clarifications from the GIORDANO TORRESI Customer Service by writing to the email address on the website: firstname.lastname@example.org
When necessary, the Seller reserves the right to ship more than one test pair, so as to enable the Customer to make a more correct choice, according to their needs.
If necessary, the seller reserves the right to ship more than one trial footwear, so as to enable the customer to make a more correct choice, according to its needs.
Upon receipt of the request, the Seller will send the test pair directly to the Customer's home, at no additional cost, to confirm the size.
After having measured the test pair, if the Customer is certain of the size, it will be necessary to communicate the choice made to email@example.com and return the test pair within at most 7 days from the receipt of the items, so that the Seller can start the handcrafting process. The test pair must be returned by the Buyer to the company Giordano Torresi, at no additional cost and by express courier provided by the Seller, within the time specified above, i.e. at most 7 days from the receipt of the item.
The shipping time for the personalised products of the line Unique is about four weeks, which starts from the date of the receipt of the test pair by the Seller and following the confirmation of the size by the Customer.
In the event of the Customer not returning the test pair and/or not communicating the size, the Seller shall be entitled not to start the handcrafting of the shoes. In this case, the Seller may retain part of the cost incurred by the Customer as reimbursement of expenses.
In the event of the Customer not respecting the time schedule for returning and/or confirming the size, the Seller disclaims all liability, since the delay in the indicated time schedule is attributable solely to the Customer.
New Classics shoes cannot be personalised. It is possible to choose the size, following an accurate international size guide. For each pair of shoes, the specific features are described and made visible through representative images.
Once the choice is made, the pair is added to the cart and it is possible to proceed with the purchase by accessing the checkout page. Once the order is confirmed, the Buyer will be contacted by GIORDANO TORRESI Customer Service to arrange the shipment of the test pair to confirm the selected size.
Registering here, the Customer will be invited to participate in exclusive GIORDANO TORRESI private events, where our guests can experience first-hand the individual craftsmanship of bespoke shoes.

- if the Buyer is not registered on the website and they would like to, they can create an account according to the procedure described in the previous paragraph (“Procedure for creating an account”); - the Buyer may complete the purchase by entering all the required data in the form, without registering.
At this point, the Buyer will be asked for additional information before proceeding with the purchase:
1.the required shipping document: receipt or invoice;
2. information about the billing address;
3.information about the shipping address, when different from the billing address;
4. payment method.
The order confirmation is preceded by the display of a webpage summarizing the order, which contains information on the price of the item(s) chosen and the VAT.
The purchase contract is deemed to have been concluded between the Seller and the Buyer upon receipt of the order by the Seller. In this case, the Seller will acknowledge receipt of the order by sending an email confirmation to the email address provided by the Buyer, complete with the order summary and the identification number of the same.
The Seller reminds the Buyer to check with the utmost care and attention the correctness of the data contained in the order summary and to communicate any amendments within 12 hours of receipt of the same.

If the Buyer wishes to receive an invoice, they must inform the Seller when filling in the order and must provide the data relating to the VAT number.
