Sorry I think these pictures need to be re-posted many times

Simple and elegant terrorsquad! I also specified the topy but not the taps on my next OE's.
Are yours double/HAF or just single leather? And what size are they? Always nice to compare proportions...

On the subject of soles, I do like the support of the Vass "HAF". My EG can feel a little spongy at times...probably telling me to drop a few pounds.

TS, I love Vass captoes. I wish they didn't crease before the cap.

None of mine (4) do that. Do all yours?
post #14467 of 20266
I had a pair and it happened.

All my captoes have it to a degree.
post #14469 of 20266

I know it comes up a lot on here, but I had one that did and another that didn't (cough...sig), but even the one that did was perfectly comfortable to wear. I've had other brands with longer caps that feel like they are entirely reinforced with steel. That led to extra unnatural vamp crease on the sides and the feeling of my pinky toe slowly being amputated.

Agree, this issue is a major turn off for me.

Hey guys, I managed to try on a pair of U last size 42. However the in-step's a little too high. (able to insert a finger space between the shoe tongue and foot)

So I do get a little bit of heel slippage. Will K last work for me?

Hope this helps someone.

Carmina
Simpson: UK8.5
Uetam: UK8
Inca: UK8 (I get heel slippage even though it fits well all around)
Rain: UK8 (same problem as Inca)

C&J:
348: UK8

Vass
U last: 42 same problem as Inca but lesser

Seems like my in-step is a little low
post #14472 of 20266
K has a slightly higher instep than U.

Sounds like its P2 for you my friend!
How about S last? Reports suggest the instep is lower than U.

Thanks for the recommendation! I much prefer chiselled shoes though.

This great post by Staffer18283 shows the various lasts, looks like S is quite elongated - much akin to the C&J 348 which were a tad long for my tastes.

Seems like i'm stuck with the Carmina Simpson last, which i do enjoy a lot. Although every new model from Carmina is on the Rain last. ffffuuuu.gif

Drop a size and go up a width in U?
Take a look at these too
