Lower instep? Vass Italian lasts have pretty low instep already.

This is definitely not my experience. And not the way most people experience it, I dare to say. And also not the way Vass describes the lasts themselves. Sure, it's not ultra high, but I would never describe U, K and F as low instep lasts.

As usual, you are entirely correct.

He is, even if I have to go through all the wiring hassle. I'm looking forward to this new last. My next worry is how will this new last fit! Another fitting run of questions!

It's a personal quirk. I really refrain from using tongue pads or insoles and prefer shoes to fit with much alterations. Should Vass offer a last that fits better, then I would definitely look more into them since they're half of what I EG/G&G (whose lasts shape fits me best).

Relative to my feet, the instep of both the U and F are too high. The price and flexibility are great but I do want the fit to be better else I won't wear the shoes.

No doubt there are others who find the instep too high on the Italian lasts. Hopefully this new last will give you a better fit. And I agree that you should not compromise on fit, no matter the deal or how nice the shoe.

Cheers my man. I can't believe it has taken me this long to get an austerity brogue when it is one of the very first Vass designs that caught my eye.

I'm not a bean-counter so I don't think cleverly like this. teacha.gif
post #12222 of 20242
more is less! wells fargo charges a flat fee of $30 but its the 1+ hour sitting in the bank that annoys me. And you buy 2-3 pairs get a little discount maybe, good exchange rate this month too. make it rain!

^ Yeah, I'm ready to place another Vass order but haven't because of that hour at Wells Fargo. Have you tried setting up the ability to do wire transfer by phone with them?

post #12224 of 20242
No I haven't is that possible? I don't like the idea of doing it over the phone because so many things could go wrong. I want to be in person handed them the vass transfer bank accounts, etc. Their always seems to be a problem processing so 1 hour usually turns into 2 and if it a new person, then they hae to call manager over, and now you have to explain a second time why you're sending $$$$, and then look at their face when they hear it's for shoes. And then wf lady starts taking shoes, how her husband has odd feet and hard to size and so they had to buy fancy shoes for him an they spend $200 for a pair and they still didn't fit

... Maybe phone isn't a bad idea afterall
