What is the instep like on the R last in comparison to the U?

We know we have no great reason to keep expanding The Collection, but we shoe people can't stop ourselves. It's the circle folly of life!

Nice patina with the mottling.

Thanks ThinkDerm...Cigar. I wonder if Vass has had this batch around for awhile. It really is a nice shade.

The wingtips help reduce the major rolls formed in shell captoes and plain toes, very nice pair enjoy them

Hey guys - long time lurker, haven't posted much. I am thinking of buying my first pair of vass shoes and the shoes in the links below seem to be in my size. I have tried on vass before and I am a 41 in the U last, so fit is not an issue. I am just a little hesitant as these are used - but the price, especially for the cordovan seems reasonable vs. new. Has anyone had an experience with buying used vass on styleforum? Appreciate the help.

Is it just me or do those cordovans look like they've never seen a brush? No top down shots would have me worried
