The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 952

post #14266 of 20253

I have 2 pairs in the pipeline right now and one of them is the RogerP special - oxblood K last DM. Every time you posted those things I couldn't help but think they were beautiful.

Cheers @ktown - enjoy the heck out of them when you get them.

Amazing double monks.

 

I ordered almost the same model after seeing it either in one of Ascot Shoes' pictures or, more likely, RogerP's posts. Mine is F last, however. Wouldn't risk ordering K last without trying it on because by default my feet are not that good with narrow lasts. Have to tread carefully (pun intended), go down in size, go up in width, make sure it doesn't destroy the elegant look blah blah blah - that kind of thing is too risky when you order online. Still, I'd say K last looks even better on those monks than the F last. Not that there is anything wrong with F - after all, it's their stock model No. 64, only in oxblood, but the chiseled toe on K complements those monks beautifully.

Yup I'm taking a risk with K, as I've never tried it on. U fits me fine, so hopefully K will as well.

Definitely not for those with chubby or widely-splayed toes.  I have quite slender toes and find K works in the same size and width as U and F for me.  But I would not choose any of my K last pairs if, say, I were wearing the same pair of shoes to the office all day and then well into the evening for an after-work function.  It is a relatively confining toe box, for sure.

 

@Junior - that pair is pure class.

Cheers!

The triple cognac shortwings are a thing of beauty.  Amazing.

@RogerP

Goyser is such a nice touch on a casual shoe. If I recall, you have a U wing in red cognac with Goyser, right?

And I'm sure it exists, but your shots are always excellent:

That oxblood makes me forget shell...though I recall seeing an "oxblood shell," too somewhere.

Thanks my man. I think I have a top down comparison shot on my computer somewhere. I'll see if I can dig it up later.

And yes to the red cognac and Goyser also on U. In fact, my grey and black spectators are the same model and last as well, just without the Goyser.

RogerP - here's one set of your pics

There was one more shot where he did a top down of a different U last shoe vs the K last double monk but I can't find it.

Damn, you're fast dude! I may have to retract that earlier post, though. Those blue austerity brogues were ordered as U, and I was told they were U, but after wearing them and examining them more closely I am convinced they are actually K. One of those charming examples of Vass getting a not insignificant detail wrong. Thankfully, I like them a whole bunch as is.

Haha I looked at every single one of your double monk pics in this thread, several of them multiple times. I always make sure to research thoroughly before making purchases. The thing about your pics is most of them (if not all) don't show up in the gallery view in the top right of this thread. I'm not sure how you're linking them but it makes them more difficult to find.
