Thanks, I wish they had a dark green shell. I believe cigar is called dark brown shell for Vass.

I am not such a fan of shoe trees,lol.  I just ordered a pair and it came like that.

 

Either it is a present for me so I must buy more shoes or that Mr. Kuty hollidays were too short.:crackup:

 

I am in touch with him to return 6 pairs (my 3636 standard tree was not lasted so I will keep a pair of that last too).

 

I think he is having a short of crazyness back from hollidays due to us.

@watchidiot Sorry these are late. Here are photos comparing the AE 1 last to the Vass P2 last. As you can see, the P2 last has a higher instep, shaped more naturally like human foot anatomy. I think this last will probably work for you quite well.

Oxblood OEII on the F last (43.25/43.5)

I just wish that Simpson fit me better. I love my suede double monks on the Simpson last (one of the best lasts there is for a double monk, imo), but it just doesn't fit me as well as I wish. I'm really bummed about it and should get rid of them, but haven't come to terms with it yet, lol! Albeit I should, as they're just sitting there collecting dust. Think I'll replace them with a pair of Vass on either the U last or the K last, as inspired by @RogerP's pair in oxblood.

+1

How did you arrange that?
post #16661 of 20218

^ I read in this thread that for MTO orders Vass can make shoes slightly smaller than the standard lasted size. I emailed Rezso about it and he said it was possible. I don't know that it's exactly a quarter size, but for my last few orders I've asked that the left shoe be made smaller than 43.5, effectively 43.25, and Rezso has said it's fine. I could still benefit from having the instep lowered a touch but the fit is better than standard 43.5.

Is Mr. Kuti pushing me to buy now 8 new pairs of shoes? My wish list is even larger though... but currently I do not even have room enough for 3 new shoe boxes.crackup%5B1%5D.gif 

I wish I had received the P2 shoe tree to compare, but just F and 3636 here guys.

Lasted shoe trees. No half sizes.  They do not mark the last, so you better do it yourself. No strings to hold them (like a puzzle).

Haha awesome, you got to love the Vass way.

Hahaha, yes I love it and Mr Kuti is a great man; I offered him a deal to get 4 pairs of those trees wich fit PERFECT!!.  If he accepts it, I am obliged to buy more shoes next year .

Can I ask, is the Alt Wien in cigar on the 3636 last or the P2?
