My feet are hard to fit; we've talked about this in emails and PM's, so I don't know why you're getting your schnitzel in a twist here. Perhaps for show?
One shoe was quite voluminous in the forefoot and instep, and one was the complete opposite. Same last. Same size. Given that there's no Vass store here in the Bay Area, if you have any other ideas on how to achieve good fit, without "fwocking up" a few times, I'm all ears.
