When I first tried U I had ordered a 43 from NMWA and it was way too tight in the toes (and maybe overall volume too, I can't remember exactly). Sizing up to 43.5 worked for me. Obviously there isn't a consensus on this, but that's what I wear.

And to add to the Vass sizing confusion, I wear 43 in U, F and K but go down to 42.5 for P2.

Fred, let me know how those 43 F last chukkas fit.

Initially I sized 0.5 up for the K on my first attempt at Vass due to opinions on here and my own research but was too big. Nothing will beat trying on physically and determining what works for you.

Prior to Vass Isetan collaboration with Roberto Ugolino, most of their last were the spacious and wider fitting lasts, now we have 2 set of last family to choose from.

 

For people with preference to the slim average width fitting shoes, the:

U; K and S lasts are the default choice.

 

Gents who prefer the toe space and wider fitting last you have the following:

3636, Peter P2, R, Budapestor.

 

I would say the F last sits in between the 2 family.

Looking for P2 sizing help. I wear Alden Barrie 8D and Carmina Rain 7.5UK as well. Debating between 41 and 41.5 for Vass P2. Any thoughts one way or the other?

I have the exact same model, and in fact wore my today also. I'd say the facings on your pair are more closed than on my pair (I've wore my pair 5-7 times). Thus, you might get away with the same size. Vass is tricky. I'll let others shime in as well.

I am not usually a big pix guy (mostly for technological reasons) but these new guys from NMWA made me go the extra mile

That is interesting too.  F Vs. P2 last.  I do not know if it is due to the Osloer Boot model in P2 with Goyser stiching, but I should have sized down 0.5 in this last compare to F.  At least I can wear thick shocks for winter time.

More sizing "advise": received a pair of size 44G U-last oxfords the other week but they were way too tight over the ball and toe box.
So I flew down to Budapest this Monday to really try on all the lasts I like. Turns out I am a 44.5 in both U and F but a 43.5 in P2. I had read the S-last looks better IRL but it's maybe even more narrow than the U and at the same time longer which just didn't appeal to me.

Hello @anzo how are you?

 

That's quite a jump from 44.5 in both U and F to a 43.5 in P2 - what model was the P2 on?

Which could explain the 1 size difference.

Thanks, I'm pretty sure the S won't work for me then.

I am between an American D &E width and the S last fits fine. YMMV.

Considering the size of the photo you posted, I believe you.

Awesome to see those shoes in the wild, though. cheers.gif
