True, I saw the Vass U-last in their store in Budapest once and it I really beautiful. Unfortunately most Vass shoes I find in shops are e rather chunky traditional Budapester lasts...

I hope to learn more about lasts from makers I had little experience so far ... photos and links are much appreciated. I have mainly experience with shoes from Carmina, Edward Green, C&J, Allen Edmonds, Ed Meier and looked at plenty of real life examples from John Lobb Paris, Alden, Church's. For...
