They are for me in calf.
Can we get back to discussing VASS or not?
Just stating the reason why he might prefer Vass rather than to buy EG, which are likely to be cost, time, and build.
Sorry to the EG brigade, you guys can put down your pitchforks. Don't want to start a riot like I did in the NMWA thread lmao
If you're referring to mine, idk. Just told Rezso so likely 7-8 weeks once he gets back to me.
I really like the DOak/brown grain combo, but I can't justify paying $1-1.3K for GYW calf boots. Especially when I can get a Vass with some custom tweaks for like $700.
- Brown scotchgrain shaft / antic cognac calf front
- 360 goyser stitch
- Vibram lug sole
Here's some Vass content for you.
After a few wearings these boots are now completely broken in and I can confirm that they are freaking Vass-tastic. My conversion to P2 love is bordering on religion right now. Just a fabulous last.
I have just the one pair of P2, so take all the following with that in mind. Plus, these are my first and only pair of Vass boots - so I don't know if there is any difference in sizing when comparing the same last in shoes.
That said, I generally take a 43 in all the Vass Italian lasts (K, F, U). I take a UK 9 in Oscar, Robert and Forest, and either a UK 8.5 or 9 in Rain (8.5 for most shoes, 9 for tall boots).
I ordered these P2 in a 43 and I would say they are a half size too big. Not an issue for me in a tall boot - an insole solved the problem. Were I ordering a pair of shoes, however - or make that WHEN I order a pair of shoes in P2 I will size down to 42.5.
PS - Props to NMWA for the makeup.
