I'd say P2 is definitely one of their most comfortable and versatile lasts unless you want something very sleek or are interested in wholecuts or monk straps without any toe caps or medallions - in those models, P2 can look a bit dull.

Had to go up half a size with U. It's a tough call because the shoes ended up being on the 'looser' side of a good fit, particularly in the instep, but I can see that they would be too tight in the toebox if I stayed TTS. But I guess I could see that coming: there are many reasons to choose the U or K last, but comfort is not one of them.

I've tried the R last once. I guess if I had to buy, I'd stay TTS, but I was thoroughly unhappy with how that last fit me, regardless of size, so I just crossed it out for future purchases there and then.

Anyway, I do think it depends on the model. Oxfords are going to fit differently than bluchers, single monks are more forgiving than double monks, and boots the easiest to deal with as long as they're not way too tight. The extent of (eventual) stretch, if you count on that when buying slightly tighter shoes, will depend on the amount of broguing and stitching. At the end of the day, it's a bit of a gamble.

It really all depends on your foot shape as well. I have a very long a narrow foot so the K last is extremely comfortable for me. I can't wear wide lasts like the P2. I'm not even sure if the F would work for me. I may give it a try in the future but for me it is really just k and U.

I think there's a narrow fitting on F, maybe P2 also. Which may not be worth the risk, of course.

Just curious if Vass would be willing to do Osloer stitching for the entire boot like how Carmina does it for their frankenstitch captoe boots?

They'll do a cap toe with the raised stitching, but I'm not sure about the heel & shaft. You could always send an email with a photo and ask.

Has anybody done or seen a wingtip balmoral shoe from Vass? Going to Budapest next week and trying to make up my mind on my next two pairs :-)

Thanks rc, actually I did search the gallery without finding any wingtip balmoral shoes. Maybe it's just a Euro/US language confusion thing: what I was thinking of is a model like Fukudas: https://www.instagram.com/p/_1Mqp_v3se/?taken-by=yoheifukudashoemaker

Did you see this type from Vass?

In Vass terminology this would be a galosh wingtip oxford

 

I havent seen that from vass either, although they make a galosh cap toe oxford (with varying levels of brogueing/perforations)

I'm sure if you show the pattern to Mr. Kuti, they will MTO their version of that for you.

Does Vass have any textured/tumbled leathers other than scotch grain calf?

 

thanks in advance!

Yeah, would like to have the NST boot but with raised stitching on vamp, heel and shaft. I'll probably drop a mail to Rezso on this. Thanks for the response.

One sizing question. I have come to conclusion to order an U last 40.5 after reading many posts. However, when reading some posts, I found some posts mentioned the size along with width designation. Maybe I misread the post. Just to be clear, Vass size does not come with width, it that true?

vass lasts come in 4 widths (mto) afaik: standard (F), narrow (E), wide (G) and extra wide (H). not sure if all widths are available on the U since I dont have any pairs on teh U last
