Yes. You are absolutely right.

Sorry for the mistake I meant 3636 was specially wider in the heel area!!. Even P2 was some kind of wide in that area.

 

What do you think about the F heel area in comparison to the P2 heel area?. Is it narrowed or same width?. Thank you again.

Thanks Gyasih but I really didn't start at 0. The newest additions are really more of a turbo boost. Here is what I already had from Vass:

Burgundy F; Dark Brown F; Antique Cognac U

Antique Cognac F; Black F; Dark Cognac F; Oxblood P2 (not really certain why I went with P2 rather than F),

Nice collection-- even the U, which can look over-done in other styles and colors. It came out brilliantly here.

I especially like the very English broguing of the first Burgundy oxford. Sometimes (as in the Antik Cognac F) they leave out the bit that goes up the quarters, which seems to create a bit of a mismatch.

Do you find F to be any longer than P2, or narrower in the heel?

Looking at these I'm becoming ever more certain that my supposedly P2 gold museums are actually on F last! http://www.styleforum.net/t/130044/the-ultimate-vass-porn-thread/9833#post_6951493
Thoughts?
post #13371 of 20566

I would say yes.

post #13372 of 20566
Maybe. But P2 can look surprisingly svelte with the right model (and maybe the right day in the shop). One giveaway would be the soles. Are the waists beveled? Because I think that is only done for the Italian (F, U, K) lasts.

I do think that F is longer than P2 for sure and probably narrower in the heel.

@OzzyJones I don't have any P2 oxfords but you might convince be those at Fs from the photos. Whatever they at they are stunning.

Visually, F is longer than P2 but as far as fit goes, I don't feel much of a difference. I have a pretty easy to fit foot, however, so your experience with heel support may be different. I size up half a size, however, from P2 and F to U.

Exactly! My shoes are meant to be worn and so they are. I give them a quick rubdown after each wear but only polish them (if they need it) the night before I wear them.

Threadz on fiyah. Lovely collection brax. I like the updates pics of the shell. They don't look like they've aged at all since I saw them last. Just gorgeous
