Group Made-To-Order (GMTO) Claudia Loafer in Taupe and Brown Leopard Hair-on Leather
Group Made-To-Order (GMTO) shoes are pre-order shoes that are not in stock and are only made when an order has been placed.
Our GMTO service offers customers the opportunity to pre-order limited edition styles and colourways that aren't available in our stock collections, without the usual Made-To-Order (MTO) surcharge.
Unlike most GMTO services offered by other brands, we don't have a minimum number of participants required, and every GMTO style that we offer will go into production as soon as an order is placed.
However, as with any MTO shoe, since the pair of shoes is custom made for the customer who placed the order, we don't allow exchanges or refunds for GMTO shoes.
For more details about our GMTO service, please read through Size & Fit (GMTO), GMTO FAQs and Terms & Conditions (GMTO).
Each pair of Palola shoes is lasted by hand and features a signature seamless back.
The 'Claudia' is an unlined loafer that is made using ultra-soft, crease-resistant, tumbled grain calf leather. The absence of lining leather and the unique properties of tumbled grain leather make it one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes you’ll ever wear.
