Some people take same F and U. Others size down a half size from U to F. I was using conjecture based on all your measurements. Best you speak with someone who sells Vass directly for the best advice. Good luck.
You seem like you're right in between a normal 6 UK and 6.5UK Based on your descriptions,I'd go: 40 in U 39.5 in F (though you could probably fit a 39 also). You should correspond via email with whomever you order from to confirm.
Agreed. Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts @super1flavor. It's a valuable perspective and contribution to the thread. That said, @long_kniveswas pretty clearly joking. FWIW, I was able to stack a "birthday code" with the 50% promo last week to achieve what I thought was some pretty good pricing. Best I've been able to achieve in a few years on what I think are some staples. We'll see what happens when the merch shows up...
Italy, yes. You'll find the best deals at the larger malls with labels that aren't truely global luxury brands.Do research on the brands at the particular location you are interested in visiting, there's different stuff all over the country. I hit Serravalle. Lardini, Colombo, and Pal Zileri were strong. Gallo, not so much. Worth a pit stop if you're transiting through.Prada's Space and "The Mall" can be missed IMO.
