This seller just listed a bunch of used Materna shoes on eBay Austria for €90: http://www.ebay.de/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=susisseconds&hash=item58e63fead0%3Ag%3AidUAAOSwmLlYB571&item=381820070608&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR10.TRC0.A0.H0.Xmaterna.TRS0&_nkw=materna&_sacat=0

I'm a 46 on the U. I sized down to a 45.5 on the F (tried on in Vass' store) and it was too roomy, and the 45 was better but then a little short. So for me, U works for my feet but F doesn't even though much of the shoe's fit is the same.

Click on the 'Dress Shirt (610)' radio button on the left to filter a bit better * Kinda - Luxire's site is very weird, and they seem to have created multiple categories with ostensibly the same purpose. So there's...
My issue with those loafers is they look like something Vass made at a client's request, rather than something with Vass styling. And I say that as someone who is cool with the U last.
