True for RTW.   Not so for some individual MTOs.  I have half a dozen MTO's with no size markings on the soles.   Shoes trees, however are always marked.

2 pair of MTO and 1 RTW and none are marked anywhere, not inside, not outside, not on boxes, not even on on trees

Those that received shoes without sizes marked, did you specify the sizes you wanted or did you give measurements of your feet instead?
post #14119 of 20218
Don't know why Vass would do this. ALL shoes should be marked for size, IMO.

Just checked the OE's I'm wearing today - no marking on the shoe itself. Only on the trees. In fact I don't recall any of my other pairs having marking on the soles or anywhere else...

Like RogerP, Reszo suggested doing a bit of wearing to determine fit, and was willing to exchange if they don't work. I went home and gave them a shot and am left struggling a bit. They certainly don't first badly, but the laces fully close right off the bat and there's a bit of heel slip. I'm concerned that this will get worse over time as the leather stretches. So maybe 42.5 would be better, but emotionally I want to stay with the 43 so that I can wear them tomorrow.

I think Vass only started marking sizes this year. 39 - for 39.5, I have quite a few other pairs without markings, only the one that came in Feb did.

Vass will confirm size in Euro before accepting your order.

i would send them back. ive been in your situation before (trading short term pleasure for long term enjoyment) and it doesn't end well. your first instinct, that they were too big is correct. the fit will only become more generous as the shoes break in.

its definitely worth the wait though, good luck!

Agree with NAMOR. Fully closed laces and heel slip will not improve with wear. Sounds like a half size down is where you need to be.

here is the picture about the rusting.

post #14126 of 20218
Those metal polish cream should get rid of it. If not, a fine sandpaper and some mineral oil.
post #14127 of 20218

metal polish cream can get rid of the rust? I never know this. actually I use my nail file to do the job. but you can see the buckle is silver metal coated on brass, it becomes ugly after removing the silver metal coat.

post #14128 of 20218
The metal polish would be more gentle than a file.

Once this has happened, you will have to oil it if you ever want to put it away for long term storage.

I should add that it is not rust. If indeed they are brass.

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

So what is the consensus on the U last? I have a normal width foot with a bit of high instep. As you can see from this photo these look too narrow. I'm a US 10.5+

These are 44.5. Do I give up on the U last? Are these just an anomaly? Is there a U wide? How does the K last compare?

Thanks
