The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1028

Gentlemen, a little input please. Regarding suede chukkas- U-last or F-last? Is one more casual than the other? Also, which sole? I was thinking dainite.
post #15407 of 20262

In a chukka I don't think one last will be dressier than the other.  Your choice is down to fit and aesthetic preference.  I have come to prefer a more round-toed last in a chukka so I'd go with F or P2, but my preference needn't inform yours.

 

Dainite is a great option for durability and all-weather versatility.

I saw in the flesh (in the leather?) a range of Chukkas at the Vass store recently and have to say that the stand out last was definitely the P2. The perfect mix of smart/casual for this boot.

Thanks guys. I'm afraid the P2 instep is probably too high for me, hence the F or U.

P2 has a lower instep than F or U

Oh! I thought it was the opposite, having the highest of the three. Thanks for the info.

New customer MTO - oxblood is such a great color for oxfords, yet impossible to capture in indoor lighting

Is that steel heel taps!?
Death wish!
post #15414 of 20262

Agreed on oxblood. My OEII's are among my favorites. I sure hope that guy with the metal heel plates doesn't have wood floors or takes his shoes off before he goes into his home.

Are those P2? My next Vass will either be a WT or a DM in Oxblood (on F last I either case). Agreeing with Mr6 as well - my oxblood OEIIs have quickly moved up to the top of my favorite shoe list in the month that I've had them.

Those are on the F last.

What kind of person would order a double-stitched captoe adelaide in black shell cordovan with saltwater crocodile facing?  On the P2?

 

Oops.

Thanks to @RogerP's terrible influence I'm changing my Vass order from my original shell balmoral boot U-cap design to a pair of oxblood cordo K-last dub monks. I have too many boots already, dammit!
