US E is a wide fitting AFAIK. Your feet might not do well in U and F as these lasts are for narrow to normal widths. If others have different experience, please feel free to share.

Agreed, the U last in particular may not be a good fit for a wider foot..

Count me in on the opinion of U last! Try both, as bothy are sublime lasts!

Favor done. Now eagerly awaiting their arrival. SF has been hell on my budget, but oh so worth it!

Mine arrived yesterday!

No surprise that Kolecho is a great seller....

To call them "works of art" may be stretching it a bit .. but... not by much!!

The term "shoegasm" was made to be used for these...

I recieved mine yesterday. The seamless heel is a really cool feature. Shoegasm indeed... Thanks Kolecho!

So, I picked up my Bordeaux Swan Neck double-soles at Canada Post today and now I can see why many rave about Vass shoes. Irrespective of the esthetic debate over U versus other lasts, one cannot help but appreciate Vass' achievement in form and function. My fears over fit were quickly alleviated. I am a US 9 in most shoes and I went with the 42.5 and it was the right move. Kolecho made the transaction quick and relatively painless. I don't even mind that Canada Post charged me $61.01 in customs duties, GST & handling fees. A small price to pay considering what I received.

You get Houston... I get Dallas.

You can have San Antonio.. I'll take Austin.

You can have El Paso.. I'll take Waco and Lubbock!

Have trial on Monday. Am wearing them with a navy, windowpane suit, white french cuff Canali shirt, King Baby "celtic cross" cufflinks, Robert Talbott, red pattern bow tie.

What would a 44.5 U Last be in US sizes? The conversion usually surprises me with Vass shoes.

44.5 U would be very, very similar to a 11D in the EG 888, which would mean 10.5 US for most.

A 46 Vass U is just the slightest bit larger than a 12.5D EG in the 888, maybe an 1/8th or quarter of a size bigger, IMHO.
