Very nice boots.  Personally, I'd dial back the burnishing on the toes of the chukkas a notch or two.
The blue Balways are pretty freaking sweet.
 Cheers - Carmina.
Cheers. These are on the K last but in a wide fitting. I wear standard width K last in shoes, but it's a snug fit and I was leary of that in a tall boot. This wide fitting gives just a bit more room in the forefoot and toe box and probably a smidge extra over the instep. The heel is now roomier than I need it to be, but that is not much of an issue in a tall boot laced up well above the ankle.Materials are navy museum, nave grain, leather haf sole with flush toe taps and...
First outing for the Vass Blue Boots.  I think I have found my new go-to bal boot last.  I will definitely be replicating this makeup in a medium brown.

Wow - more than a little surprised to hear that you can get Vass lasts that fit, but can't find comfort in Carmina Soller and Detroit in a wide fitting.  I'd say P2 Vass and Carmina Detroit are roughly comparable in forefoot width. But you're right - if those Carmina lasts aren't wide enough for you it's time to move on from the brand.
Awesome boots @ThunderMarch - I was very tempted by those as well.  That heavy grain looks really cool.
I don't much care about the colour of the insole. Some like vibrant contrast. Some like same colour. Neither is "better" . And I don't see how contrasting lining / insoles are "boring" in comparison with the monochrome treatment. But people like what they like. And if it really matters to you, order it the way you want.
