@NAMOR- awesome. Those boots somehow look sleeker than a normal F to my eyes. Very nice!

Lol I thought the same here is anothe angle;

Another cool detail on the boots is the super soft grained shaft that's made from the opposite side of their suede:

Antique cognac calf of left and red brown suede backside used for shaft. Much softer then calfskin but just as thick

Thanks for this. Regarding orange and gold, which were discussed a couple of pages back also, does Vass call them orange and gold? Also, are both colors available temp. or perm.?

Unanswered questions.  Anyone knows for how long does Vass let the uppers in their lasts before the hand welting process is carry out?.  Are their lasts made of wood or plastic?. Thanks.

Thanks everyone. CASE, the others are correct about this being an Old English II boot on F (Vass MTO). Zapas, I thought about HAF, but wanted this one as sleek as possible (not that my others really aren't), so I just went with single.

 

This was the pair I had for sale, but decided to keep. I can only have a new pair of Vass sitting around for so long before they make it onto my feet. I swapped the thicker unwaxed laces Vass uses (also in NAMOR's photo) for thin waxed laces...old laces in photos below. A small change, but easier to use with blind eyelets and the lacing closes a bit more.

I think orange was something they received in short supply. But even so, Gold was far more impressive to mine eyez

I don't know about the time, but the lasts are definitely wood. We took some pictures when we visited the manufacture, one is already on our tumblr, will post a pic of the lasts later.

yeah lasts are made from wood. mr. kuti also said they are developing yet another last to add to their permanent line. something between f and u last drool.gif

Can't wait!!! Hopefully be ready soon after summer

Pic of s last and u last. S last toe tip slightly wider, and has a lower instep then u last. Nose is slanted while u last toe box is a little taller with higher walls. Both size 44:

post #14787 of 20286
I like the U last alot but going by my better instinct, i had to order a pair in S last instead to fit my slightly widish and low instep. Also a size 44. It is en route.

I might ask Mr Kuti about the new C last.

@NAMOR Details on the Orange museum pair?? The perf captoe.
post #14789 of 20286

The S is wider in the ball, too.  And it's true that they're working on a couple of new lasts: the F and U was commercially successful but not an especially happy collaboration.  They want to make something new by themselves.

 

And "orange" gold museum was a mistake, not the colour they wanted, and when it's gone it's gone.  The "dark gold" is closer to what they wanted and therefore remains in supply.

You have great info on all things Vass. Thanks for sharing.
