Don't forget that there is a wide version of the F last.

And there is always the extra wide last...!
I have duck feet so I just placed an order for a pair on the U-last in G-width. I believe there are at least four widths of the italian lasts. That is widths E, F, G and H (narrow, normal, wide, extra wide).

I'm getting ready to order a new pair of Vass. I already have a pair in 44.5 U last and a pair of 43.5 F last. See my photo below, the two on the bottom right. Both fit well. When I compare them sole to sole they are almost the same length. The U is a hair longer. Is this normal? How can a shoe that is a full size larger be almost the same length? Could the 44.5 - U be mislabeled? Anyway I'm opting for the model 1006, F last in museum plum. It's on the front page of the Vass web site. Awesome.

 

 

 

 

3 things:

 

1) Awesome boots!

2) Outsole length can differ a bit as between different lasts, though I would expect a pair a full size larger to be more than a hair longer.

3) While I have not experienced it myself over many pairs, a number of forum members have reported some - ahem - variability in Vass sizing.

My 43.5 F last measures 11 5/8" inside length, 4 1/4" outside width.

My 44.5 U last measures 11 3/4" inside length, 4 1/4" outside width.

Almost identical

Yes the U has a narrower toe box but otherwise, go figure!  :puzzled:

Width-wise they're pretty ok though. I'm planning on reordering the same asskicking bal design in whiskey shell instead and on a P2 last for a more substantial look/higher instep, but plan on sizing down to a 43.5 - any shell goyser experts care to chime in? I hear this should be alright but I'm paranoid, so I just wanna make sure.

Hey guys,

Thinking of getting a split toe blucher. Colour wise I am not sure right now. Has anyone ever got a split toe with a museum calf leather or does it look odd?

For fitting info, I'm on the larger size of 11UK in most of the English brands and Carmina. These are size 45.5 on the F-Last and fit comfortably out of the box. The color is Vass' new gold museum, though they're labeled "cognac museum calf" on the box.

def go 43.5. the vass instep is more generous, and the toe slightly more spacious than f last. if 44 flast is big, then 44 p2 will also be too big 43.5 in p2 should be perfect. I re-ordered the p2 ucap boot in 44.5 on goyser with double dainite. my previous 45 was too big.

They're deeper and richer in color vs. the usual gold museum calf but definitely too light for a navy suit. Dark brown museum calf would probably be more appropriate. I would have recommended plum museum, but you already have that :-)

I do love those gold museum calf austerity and was drawn to them as an MTO but I decided on the dark brown since it fits my take on CBD. My version shown here when new:

Nice!!

post #14052 of 20218
Very nice color.
post #14053 of 20218

After wearing these all day I have decided "no more U last" Visually a little too pointy for my taste and definitely toe cramping (and I have a normal foot) Good thing I don't have to walk much for my job. Otherwise good looking boot.

post #14054 of 20218

Too bad - that's a very cool-looking boot.

They're still wearable, just not that comfy but
