For what it's worth, greater width doesn't automatically necessitate extra height, esp. not when we focus on the foot itself. Unfortunately standard lasts seldom reflect real life feet...a statistical average of common foot types, perhaps. This is why...all other things being equal...obsessing about last shapes (esp. in RTW footwear) for any reason other than aesthetics is wildly misinformed and misguided. It's magical thinking and not much else.

As a maker, whose primary concern is the foot...with all its idiosyncrasies...but nevertheless ever mindful of the shoe and how it affects the foot (and vice versa) I have to express some reservation regarding a...shall we say...somewhat more ready tolerance vis-a-vis fit for any foot configuration.

It's true that a meaty, high volume foot has more cushioning and so may not experience immediate discomfort. But cushioning is not fit and the worst part of it is that any cushioning...internal or external...tends, more often than not, to camouflage a misfit. Sometimes egregious misfits. And if not fit properly, the meaty, high volume foot will create and experience problems just as surely as a boney foot, if only in the long run. It will almost always walk over the welt, for one obvious example.

Fit is fit, cushioning doesn't confer any immunity to foot problems that can develop from misfit footwear.

--

I agree in that the meaty foot will be able to tolerate more for the short term and may start to develop problems in the long term but it also depends on how much that shoe is worn too.

Of course it is best for one to have a personal last to accommodate all of the options and idiosyncrasies of a foot, but since most can't do that they have to make due in the best way they can.

Which of the 2 Vass lasts; "F" and "R" would you say is more aesthetically pleasing, and elegant?

I read where you said that "R" was roomier.

Thanks My Friend.

both! r last looks like cj 325 while the f last looks more like an elongated 341

Is Notch no longer doing his proxy service?

 

I know he told me (late August, if memory serves) that he would be out of country for roughly 3+ months, so this could be what's accounting for any issues?

I hope so.  Glad you told me that.

 

At first, everybody was like; "No more cordovan oxford boots..."

 

Then, they was like; "No more whiskey and the like..."

 

Now, their like; "No more cordovan at all..."

 

I'm about to roll the dice with some burgundy and hope for the best.

Thinking to add a pair of Cordovan Bordeaux chukka boots and leaning towards the new SP last. Would appreciate any feedback about this new last that Vass started carrying.  

 

 

@NAMOR - sir these are fantastic boots and love them. They are super comfortable too and fit very good. I posted this pic above 2 weeks ago. 

I am rotating them with my C&J Whiskey Harlechs and other C&J Shell boots. Need to add another pair of Vass shell soon!
