Nice I've thought about shell austerity wingtip too.. But I'd prefer another captoe of longwing boot

Thanks guys. Yes sizing is from Calf to Calf. Basically trying to see if any of the Epaulet Vass shoes/boots will fit me.

Yes, I go back and forth. The clean lines of the austerity look great in lighter colors. I have a dark shell longwing shoe coming, so I'm waiting to see if my P2 shell size is dialed in at 43. Going forward, I think I can also safely stick to 43 for F/P2 shell boots and only size up to 43.5 on calf boots.

For length, yes. However, F is narrower than P2 and fits differently around the instep.

For many, this is a non-issue. For me, it means doing without F or (per recent correspondence with Vass), moving up one width.

Good to know. What's odd is I went with 42.5 G width on the U Last for a Chukka and fits me well.

42.5 p2 f width would fit simalarly in the instep and and across the ball

What last is that?  You may send them to me.

post #12504 of 20221
Strangely enough I can't answer that question I just know that I felt in love with them and didn't ask about the last.
I am located in Europe, if you are interested let me know

got a pair of the 3636 last boots on closeout from Epaulet last week.  Beautiful color.  I took a shot that a 44 would fit my 10.5US feet, got lucky.  A bit of room, but probably perfect with heavier socks.

those looks great. are they your first pair of Vass? how do you like the last?
post #12507 of 20221

Yes, first pair of Vass.  I have a number of Ron Rider boots, a couple Alden's that I bought before I understood my sizing,  I have been looking for an attractive boot with a lug sole that will stand up to weather.  At $4xx, the Vass were a great opportunity.

 

Last:  Wow, where do I start.  As I mentioned, I ordered the 44's expecting that they would be too big, but really they are only a bit on the large side.  The funny thing is, when I compare them to my Rider's or my Aldens, they look smaller.  Much smaller in a couple cases.  Hell, smaller than a size 10 Rider that doesn't fit me.  I'll need to do a lineup.  But all that to say it makes me realize I have a lot still to learn on lasts and fit.

 

Appearance-wise, a great boot.  A bit wide in the forefoot, but narrows down nicely and doesn't look like an aircraft carrier under my feet.  They do a good job holding my feet at the center of the foot, keeping everything else stable even while a bit roomy.

^ very nice. i would say that vass museum is unlike the leather i am accustomed to with john lobb. even the stuff carmina calls museum is debatable. i think id like more of a mottled color
