Width-wise they're pretty ok though.

I hear this should be alright but I'm paranoid, so I just wanna make sure.

I have 43.5 in shell P2. If you have a wider forefoot, beware of the downsize....

+1

I'm the same size as exdeth but with a wide-ish forefoot, and I go for a 44 on most lasts (except a couple).

Also, carminas in the same size look much smaller due to the trimmer welt and the way carmina designs hide width way better than vass. but everyone's feet are unique so ....

No streching on those??. They look to me too narrow in the ball, low and high instep.

StockWellDay, I suppose your new shoe is on the U last. What is the style number of the shoe on Vass site?

I guess model 65? It's the Old English II on U Last.

Lo entiendes ahora?.

Si, muy bueno. Y es verdad!

For what it's worth, I also use a high and low instep.

"D" is what we call the "short heel."

"C" is the "high instep" although not taken at quite such an angle and running over the "root of the fifth."

The "low instep"...not shown on the diagram, by my definition...would be running over the middle cuneiform and one "section" (Sabbage) forward of the high instep..

The waist...roughly the same as B...just behind the medial and lateral joint.--"A" on the diagram.

Not many shoemakers use either the short heel or the high instep...or perhaps I should say they don't use two instep girths. Nor do they use a long heel measurement, although I find them all very useful--more data equals a better fit, IMO.

I suspect these are measurements more appropriate for pull on boots...I'm guessing Bestetti recognizes them, as well

Hi DW, the PDF sheet for foot mesurements in your webpage it helped me very much (I was thinking to place you an order, lol).  I was not sure how to mesure the ball until I read it.  Many tutorials are completly wrong about the issue. Thanks for clarifications.
